Are you still using a traditional objective in your resume?

Email Print

Traditionally resumes have an introductory statement at the beginning. Most people call it the “Objective Statement”, where they mention what they want to do in their lives, or more specifically, with their careers. This statement is what hiring managers read or are expected to read first (given that it’s placed at the top of the page). So in a way, it is this statement which can reserve the job for you but if not done properly, this same statement can be the reason why your job search is over before it even started.

We have seen thousands of resumes and most of them include objective statements. Very few resumes, though, use statements which impact the reader. Most of the rejected resumes read very vague objectives, similar to:

“To utilise my skills with a company which understands my talents and provides me with the platform to grow in my professional life.”  OR

 “To use my skills and expertise to grow the organization.”

and so on and so forth. Do you really think that such a start to your resume is doing you any good? Well, no!

Letter to all Customers – Beware of Fraud & Please exercise caution when choosing Resume Services online

Email Print

Dear Customers,

Since November 2013, there have been a lot of complaints regarding Resume Writing services especially from the Delhi/Noida region. A lot of companies (more than 10) have mushroomed in this area and taken up names which resemble popular company/website’s like ours, naukri, shine, etc. The names these websites take are similar to xyzshine.com or naukriforxyz.com or xyzgetsetresume.com, etc. This has not only impacted the reputation of the big companies but also impacted start-up firms like ours who are new into the business and creating a name through genuine service excellence. As they say, one dirty fish spoils the pond.

Now, all these companies have a similar modus operandi – they set up a BPO/Call Centre where every seat is priced and has a target to achieve. All callers target customers who are not aware of online banking but need a job desperately. These callers then take the customers’ online baking details and dupe them of huge amounts on the pretext of jobs and resume writing services. By the time the customer realizes, the fraud has already been done and the caller is unapproachable.

As founder of getsetResumes.com, I urge you to exercise extreme caution before you fall into the trap of such companies. Please verify the company details, check their About Us page or Company Page and try to locate them. If the callers seem fishy, do not proceed with the transaction. If any company offers you a job promise on the pretext of resume writing, do not believe them at all! And NEVER EVER share your banking or credit/debit card details with any caller from any company.

We contacted CCAvenue – our trusted payment partner today, to clarify their stand on this matter. The good thing we found is that payment gateways like CCAvenue, EBS, etc. have started taking cognizance of this growing menace and have started to confiscate the payments of these fraudulent companies. This has resulted in huge losses for them and should become a deterrent for anybody to start this business again. However, in all this, it is the customer who has had to pay the price.  

If you receive any such alleged calls claiming to be from getsetResumes.com or any company’s name resembling getsetResumes.com, please notify us immediately at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING and we will take appropriate action at the earliest. Our Customer Support staff NEVER asks you for your banking details and will never solicit you for a job. We are writers and only provide Writing Services to professionals which help them with their job search. We do not provide any other service and if anybody offers you any other service in our name, please call us and notify us immediately.

We assure you the best of service and the best quality documents always.

Requesting your support and trust,
On behalf of the entire getsetResumes.com Team,
Rajat Vashishta

"Should I pay someone to write my CV?"

Email Print

Being a Resume Writing firm, the obvious answer to expect from us would be 'yes'. Although it is always helpful to hire a professional to write your resume, there are other sides to this decision too. And unless you are absolutely convinced that you need a professional to write your CV, you should not pay someone to do it for you.

Let us do an interactive study of the steps involved in writing a winning resume and how a professional writer approaches the task v/s how a normal working professional does.

It all begins with your job search

The next step in the career of every professional begins with the frustrating task of looking for a job. This is the first stage where you interact with your future employer although in an indirect manner. You go through their job description, their website, read their brochures and try to learn more about the company. You then decide what the job can offer and if it is worth leaving your present job for this one. If you decide to go for it, you take your present CV and apply straightaway; who has the time to customize the resume for a job.

What does the resume writer do?

She understands the job profile, and takes a decision on what kind of a resume would suit such a JD. Remember, she has a vast experience in writing a lot of similar resumes. She then digs into her database and researches similar profiles before starting to work on your resume.

How to write a Fresher or Graduate’s Resume

Email Print

Fresher-ResumeFor fresh graduates, writing a resume seems tough for two reasons:

  1. You are new to the Job Market
  2. You do not have a work history and hence no experience or roles to boast

Both these reasons are valid and can throw any fresher off-guard when writing their first formal resume for an employer. However, this can be easily tackled if you can answer this very basic question – what would you like to include in your first Resume?

Now before we answer this, we first need to answer the question - why do employers want resumes? Employers want resume as it gives them an insight about an individual’s qualifications and skills so that they can evaluate these with respect to the company's area of work and hire people accordingly.

Now, established companies are always on the lookout for people who already have a work experience. But that does not mean fresher's are not welcome. Because fresh graduates carry a lot of skills and drive to work and at the same time are available at a low cost, every company is open to hiring fresher candidates with relevant skills and aptitude. This is the area which a fresher's resume should always address. Hence, the main ingredient of your resume needs to be relevant skills for the employer.

Frame your Resume - the Napoleon Hill way

Email Print

Napoleon Hill is considered to be one of the pioneer writers of personal-success literature. He was one of the earliest proponents of philosophy-of-success and his book, Think and Grow Rich testifies his authority on the subject. Advocates of personal development refer to his book as a bible and his groundbreaking formulae are still applied by students and aspiring professionals. His works are still subjected to a lot of researches and it has been found that several theories propounded by him can be applied today. His concepts centering on resume writing are relevant today which we will elaborate here.

Resume Writing – Napoleon Hill’s Way

Napoleon Hill did not call the document a Resume or a CV. Instead he called it a “Brief”. His exact thoughts on how important the brief or resume is were:

Best Job Search Practices & Strategies

Email Print

Finding a job is tough. Finding one which matches your potential is even tougher. While getting a job which matches your talent with the job proposal is exciting, jumping on to a job in a hurry can also be a fatal mistake. A blind job find will simply have you land nowhere. If you are not following the perfect job finding strategy then you would not be able to stand before the right employer. An apt job finding stratagem refers to some fixed steps leading to an ideal job. For instance, if you are a creative writer and you are opting for a job stating copy writing and translation as well, the genre is unnecessarily extended. Let’s try to discuss some practices which can help you land a job as per your expectations.

Resumes and Heatmaps

Email Print

Time and again a new research surfaces talking about how much time recruiters spend looking at a resume. When we started our resume writing service 2 years ago, the time was pegged at somewhere between 37-40 seconds; 2 months ago a new report put this time spent at a paltry six seconds. Yes, 6 seconds only. Well, the report which tracked eye movements and prepared a heat map is itself very interesting. Below is a snapshot of the resumes the report quoted.

The one on the left was prepared by a job seeker; the one on the right by a professional writer.

Notice how easier it is to locate sections in the professionally designed resume. Also, the cumulative heat score of a professional resume is much more than the amateur one.

Write an International Resume

Email Print

Our pre-conceived belief that we would be handling resumes from Indian professionals only took a back seat from the first day itself. The very first resume we handled was for a teacher with a 10 year experience who wished to go to the UK and teach.

This particular case taught us a lot and opened us up to the international market and subsequently we designed resumes for clients flying for lucrative jobs to Australia, Middle East, US and UK. In this post I'll share with you some points from our research which should help you write an impressive international resume, especially when you are an Indian looking to fly abroad.

Employer conduct during interviews

Email Print

Almost all articles on career related matters and job interviews focus on prospective employees and their conduct. But while it is important for a candidate to be at his best show during an interview, it is equally important for an interviewer to be impressive as well. The interviewer projects the entire company’s image on the candidate and needs to do justice to it. For if she fails the candidate may lose the interest to join the employer. After all, who wants to join a poorly represented organization!

Keeping that in mind and some practical experiences of interviewers behaving weirdly during interviews, I have tried to bring out some tips for potential panellists on the face of the table. Read on…
