Tips on Professional Resume Writing
Your resume is the face of your career journey, and you will not get a second chance to make that first impression. It certainly is a daunting task to get that perfect resume, because it gets reviewed by software as well as by hiring managers. It can range from choosing a resume format, selecting the right font, customisation, using resume keywords, explaining employment gaps, and many other aspects.
A solid and effective resume can greatly improve your chances of landing that dream job. How does one make sure that his resume is top notch and bullet proof, however?
Our Career Lounge has all the answers for you and will make sure your resume helps you outshine the rest.
Interview Cracking Techniques
Wondering why you didn’t land that job despite a good resume?
It’s not always that your resume gets you a job. It also depends on how well you manage the interview, especially the ‘tough and tricky’ questions. The job interview is a platform to market yourself. It is a strategic conversation with a purpose. Your goal is to persuade the employer that you have the skills, background and ability to do the job, and that you can comfortably fit into the organisation and its culture.
Before an interview you need do a thorough homework, research your industry, stay positive, be confident, give mock interviews, etc. to be all prepped up.
It is at our Career Lounge that we help you overcome all the jitters.
Professional Dress Code
Would you go to a wedding wearing a gym attire? Of course not.
The first judgment an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. That’s why, in many cases, it is still important to dress professionally for a job interview, regardless of the work environment.
You’ll want that first impression to be not just a good one, but, a great one. In general, the candidate dressed in a suit and tie is going to make a much better impression than the candidate dressed in scruffy jeans and a T-shirt.
Our Career Lounge grooms you so that you are dressed to kill.
For Campus Students
So, you have those shaky knees at the first ever campus interview?
You must have toiled very hard to get some excellent grades, and now are ready to jump on the professional bandwagon. But, being your first time, facing a barrage of unexpected questions is naturally nerve racking.
There are several rigorous rounds, viz. Aptitude Tests, Group Discussions, Personal Interviews, Technical Interviews, HR Interviews, etc., which need to be cleared to land a job on campus. It is imperative to make a noticeable mark in these interviews, because in today’s world, corporates look for fresh minds who can adapt themselves to the environment, however challenging it may be. Also, the pay offered to students on campus is slightly higher than those who get selected off-campus.
At our Career Lounge we take you through a thorough drill before the actual grill and make sure you come out with flying colours.
