What most widespread mistakes are made by people by drawing up the summary?If you look for work, then not to do you without this leaflet of paper. The employer everything is the person, but not the scanner, and it will not be able to determine your features by telephone conversation, to learn your skills and to understand what impression you make on it. Of course, the wide experience behind shoulders disturbed nobody yet, but the human factor is not cancelled yet, truly too? In a word, the document under the name “ summary “ it is necessary to give: or by fax to send, or by e-mail. Interview is the second step of your communication with the alleged employer. Actually, will also depend on the summary whether it will manage to you to move in general on this most second step.
So what most widespread mistakes are made by people who make the summary? In - the first, do them too vast. Most it is characteristic of programmers who before search of new work managed to develop the mass of huge projects. They understand that the person who is responsible for a set of personnel (he is a HR manager), hardly understands something his practices therefore all seek to tell in the summary - no, no more clear, and any more in detail. They try to replace clearness of the story with the number of the used words and hope that thus all sense of work will open to HR managers. As a result of the summary from them come on 3 and more than a printed page in small print. And about skills and hobbies it is told in the last turn: the main place is taken by the developed descriptions of separate projects which turn out as if cut off from all career of the person.
In - the second, applicants break logic of the narration which it is obligatory to eat in the summary. Let`s put, the address and a contact information can be written not in a summary body for a long time, and from above, in a look “ " caps; over a name. It is better to clean marital status, religion and other personal belongings from the summary in general: in - the first, it does not matter, in - the second, save the place (you watch point 1). And at once under a name and age it is necessary to write career stages, and not education at all. Why? Yes because experience interests the manager much more, than the diploma of prestigious university. If you have it, it is only plus, but you should not pretend that the diploma is that important achievement of which you can brag. Alas, you it will not cause respect. So begin to describe the experience, and moving from the last to the first. Naturally, the last place of work will interest “ headhunter “ much more, than student`s practice. Also do not forget one more rule: if for various reasons you constantly changed the company, without changing a position, you should not list in a column of all 15 places of work, it will induce the manager to ask you additional questions. And those who had interview, know that there is no question worse, than: “ Tell why you left the previous place of work? “ Here also explain why for 3 years replaced 15 places … However this rule you can safely break
if you changed not only places of work, but also activity, especially within the same specialty. For example, the journalist who worked both on television, and on radio, and on the Internet, and in the newspaper, can be considered as the person who, at last, found what suits it completely. He already decided that he chose a profession correctly, and now, apparently, and decided on specialization.
And in - the third: do not trust the computer program such important part of your work as literacy check. Not always those data which are put in the electronic dictionary are true. And the illiterate summary most often gets poisoned in a recycle bin at once. Exceptions, of course, happen, but they on that and exceptions to be a rarity in own way. You need it?]
