Professional Résumé Writing

Do you know why business institutions or another organizations needing additional employees require résumé for their applicants?

First and foremost, the résumé will be their basis if an applicant is qualified to do the job. They want to know some educational attainment, work experiences and other qualifications that may see fit for the job.

Therefore, the company wanted to know what you can do for the benefit of the company and all the things in it. Below is a professional format of a résumé:

Your name should be written in clear, readable, font (eg. Arial or Tahoma), bold face and should be bigger that the ordinary text in your résumé. You can place you name in the center or at the left of the typewriting pad. Below it will be you address, contact number and email address to be written on a single space.

Contact number / email address

Let us leave one space for the meantime. You will check the spacing later on to fit the data exactly to the typewriting. The next to be written will be the objective.

Objective: You can write immediately your objective text here. Just tab it after the “Objective:”. Again spacing and tabs should check later for alignment. If your objective text will run through the next line, you need align it with the first line.

Sample Objective: To develop my personal growth and contribute to the benefit of the company as a whole (this part should align with the word”To”.

The next will be you “Work Experience” if you already have. If not you proceed to you “Educational Attainment.” Do not use “Educational Background.” Obviously, “attainment” word is better than “background.”

Work Experience: Start from the recent. As much as possible, you need only to include those experiences related or closely related to the job you are applying. Include dates and you job responsibilities. To be written as follows:

Work Experience: Teacher

Leave again another one space then write your “Educational Attainment.”

Educational Attainment: Obviously you need to start with your highest educational attainment. I would like to suggest that you don’t need to include your high school or elementary levels unless you have good reasons to include them on. After your college studies, if have passed a licensure examination, by leaving another one space immediately write below you degree when and where the examination is held. Suggested format: Passed the Licensure Examination for “your degree” conducted on “date” at the “place where the examination is held.”

The next will the “Seminar / Workshop Attended”

Seminar / Workshop Attended: Start from the recent seminar or workshop you attended. The format should be: “Title of the Seminar / Workshop”, the address where the activity is held, and the date. You don’t need to include the number of hours.

Merit: or Achievement: (choose one only) Start from the recent and include relevant details like time and place.

Personal Data: Your personal data should be place here because this will be the lat thing an employer would like to know about your. They are more particular on your capacity and efficiency.

Character Reference:You put here names persons (maximum 3 persons) who are not related to you but you are known to them. In case the company wishes to know more about you better, these persons could give additional info about you.

To end you résum, write this sentence:

I hereby certify that the above information is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.


(you signature here) no need to write your name below your signature, instead, write “Applicant’s Signature.”

Applicant’s Signature
