Kathmandu: Ensemble for Bachelor (EnB) organized an online session on “Resume Writing“ through Zoom Application. The duration of the program was 2 hours. The facilitator for this event was Ms. Ashrina Ranjit, the Recruitment Coordinator of Teach For Nepal (TFN), the speaker of the workshop shared us the plots and ideas of Resume Writing. This session was all about what resume exactly means and the common errors we possibly make while writing a resume.
“Resume is Branding for Self”
The main highlights straight from the workshop:
- Resume is completely different from Curriculum Vitae (C.V)
- Resume is concise and modified according to the need of the job whereas C.V is comprehensive and is a detailed document.
- It is your first impression on the employer.
- What do you really want employer to know about you?
- Main sections:
- Profile: Few impactful sentences with the use of present tense
- Academics: Last three degrees in descending order including the institution
- Experience: From a recent workplace in reverse and showcase your responsibilities
- Events and Achievements: Only relating to the job you are applying for
- Skills: Action-oriented short phrases including personal and technical skills
- Cover letters: Customize according to the job description and align organizational goals with your personal objectives.
- Only mention skills or qualifications that add value to your resume for that particular job you’re applying for.
It was a very fruitful session hosted by the event department of EnB, utilizing the idle time during the lockdown. This was an amazing interactive session with 80+ enthusiastic participants who made it more effective. We look forward to more such interactive and useful events in the near future.
