    An ideal resume should contain the header ‘Skill set’ or is it not a necessary one

    I have just completed my engineering and I am preparing my resume for sending to companies. One of my peers suggested that I should include ‘Skill set’ as one of the headers and include my skills in that. Another peer suggested that it is for the interviewer to decide my skills based on the academic and extracurricular activities that I have pursued. Please guide me in the right direction. What would be the best option?

    Hello,


    Your Resume is the refletion of your personality. You should take extra cautions to
    build your Resume. There is no such thing as ideal Resume you have to make it based
    on company profile. However, you should consider the following points while building
    your Resume,

    1. Statement of Purpose.
    2. Professional Objectives.
    3. Work Experience (if any).
    4. Academic Qualifications.
    5. In house Project Work Done.
    6. Computer Skills.
    7. Personal Infromations.
    8. Extra Curricular, Community and Professional Activities.
    9. Hobbies.
    10.Job Positions.
    11.Languages Known.

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    Resume is nothing but summary of your bio-data & qualification.It includes your name,date of birth,father's name,present & permanent address,contact no.,qualification details,hobby,Any project work done,experience,interest
    etc

    I has nothing to do much.It gives an idea about you to the interviewers.Your selection in any job mainly depends upon your performance in the interview as to your replies,your behaviour,your body language,your dress code.

    So prepare your resume in such a way so that it covers all your bio-data & qualification details as mentioned above.Prepare well to face the interview & maintain your good behaviour,dress code,body language etc during the interview.You should wear light colour shirt,dark colour pant,black colour shoes,Belt in the colour of pant,Tie in matching colour with shirt,Hair should be medium & well combed.Should have well confidence & reply the answer with full confidently.Maintain courtesy with the interviewers as ask before entering the room" May I come in sir."Say thanks after you get your seat offered by the interviewers,Say sorry sir if you don't know the reply of any question.

    Hope for your success.

    Thanks & good luck.

    See a resume basically shows all the information about you in best possible format so that the employer can judge your capabilities and its benefit for the companies in mimimum time. Thus any information that can help you in gaining an extra point for a particular job should be written in your resume. As an employer will take only the person who has the best possible abilities which he can use to serve the company. Like suppose you and another job seeker both have almost similar education qualifications but suppose you have an additional skill that can help the company than obviously you will become first choice for the company.

    See normally due to huge competitions now a days companies have started shortlisting candidates. Now if you have some relevant skill but you haven't written it in your resume than how will the company will come to know if you are not shortlisted for the interview. So your approach must be such that you should try to give out maximum information relavent to a particular job so that you and your resume could be assessed properly.

    Keep in mind the skills set should be something that is relavent for the particular job you are applying so before applying for each job see your resume and the relavence of information in it with the job and thus modify things accordingly.
