What is a resume?
A resume is a summary of your professional career, with additional useful and interesting personal information. A resume is often 1 or 2 pages long. You can list your work experience, diplomas and certificates.
What should be on a resume?
This is the most important question! You can find so many examples online that it’s easy to get confused. The parts below should in any case be on your resume. You can also find them in our resume tool.
- Personal information
Your name! Good to know, don’t you think?! Also your date of birth, and practical information, such as contact details, should be added to your resume.
- About you
Briefly introduce yourself. What are you good at? What would you like to learn? This information indicates much more to an employer than a list of facts. Keep your self-description to a maximum of 5 sentences.
List which (school) diplomas you have.
- Work experience
This is where you add your previous positions and employers. Briefly write down (in 1 or 2 sentences) what you did during each job.
By adding your hobbies and interests to your resume, the future employer will get a better idea of who you are as a person.
Are you great with Word, Excel and the other MS-Office programs? Or do certain systems and techniques have no secrets for you? Write them down under ‘Skills’.
It can be a great advantage to an employer if you speak English, Dutch or another language well.
Have you completed a course and obtained a certificate? For instance, your VCA or a forklift certificate. List them here!
