Why you should have an e-resume



What is an online e-resume?

An online resume, also known as an electronic resume, or e-resume for short, is designed for computer use and to upload it on the Internet. 

This means that both the font and the format of your resume must be adapted both for scanning and for printing. 


You should also think of how to maximize the use of keywords so that search engines and employers can find your resume on the Internet easily.


Why go online?
As you well know, nowadays everything can be found online. Every individual, regardless of his job or social standing seems to have a personal website. Having a website is, of course, not a luxury anymore. It is a must.

Muovo well understands how candidates could improve their chances of landing themselves an interview, and eventually, a good job by transferring their skills and resume online.

Although a number of candidates have already been doing this for quite some time, a lot seem to fail to understand that an electronic resume should be properly prepared for storing, distributing, tracking and searching electronically via the software tools, employers and recruiters use these days.


The following tips should help you design a good, high quality e-resume that is bound to impress your potential employer.

1. Maximize use of keywords
You need to target your keywords appropriately, which means that you need to choose those main words (key words) that highlight your characteristics while matching the specifics of the job that you are applying for.

For example, if you want to work as a marketing officer and got a degree in Marketing and perhaps some experience, apt keywords would be, (of course), 'marketing', 'market', 'office', 'office work', industrial relations', and so on.

2. Keep your e-resume short. Unless you are applying for a post, which has it's own unique resume standards (i.e. teacher or a scientist), a resume should not be longer than one page.

3. Use headings. The most headings are, as follows:

Objective
- a short sentence detailing the type of job you are seeking.


Work Experience
- job list with impressive details demonstrating your value to the organization you worked for.


Skills
- information such as computer skills, languages, and any memberships of professional organizations and so on.


Education
- A brief list of your education as far back as an undergraduate degree. Mention the institution(s) attended, the degree(s) and dates of attendance.


Note: Pull all work experience and educational background in reverse chronological order - Put the most recent information at the top and work backwards.


4. Always remember to proofread before forwarding your resume. Check your spelling and grammar, then ask a friend to read it in case they notice errors that you missed.
