Hi there, Sal here from Oz Resumes your local Singapore Resume Writer. Today I am going to let you know more about tips having the right Singapore resume format with reasons why they work.
These Singapore resume formats have been designed to help you get more job offers
Understand the job you are applying for
Have a clear understanding of the job you are applying for will help you craft the content required for the position. So for example, try to have more keyword related content in your resume. The reason for this is because, the hiring managers (e.g. CEOs, CFOs, HR etc.). Content is great but it must be within context of the position
Listing down your contact details with URL Hyperlinks
Having your name, address and contact number at the top is standard but having your email and LinkedIn URL hyperlinked is even better. This makes it easy for the reader to click to email you or look at your LinkedIn Profile. Having a LinkedIn URL also allows you to track the person who has viewed your profile and possibly add them as a professional acquaintance in your social network.
Residency and Mobility Status
Stating your residency status builds trust with the potential employer. This way the employer would know that you have legal working rights and would not have to go through asking you again in the interview.
If you do have a driver’s license and a car in the resume would improve chances of getting jobs that require you to be mobile. Sometimes having a manual license also helps, especially with trade or blue collar jobs.
Education and Career Overview
Stating your education and relative qualifications fro the job would further improve the confidence to the potential employer. This will tell the employers that you are skilled in the job and reassure that they would have the work carried out by a qualified professional.
Stating a brief career overview (about 6 to 7 lines) would make it easy for the reader to see your work experience without them going through the whole resume.
Having your referees at the end of the resume will make it easy for the potential employer to contact them before hand. This saves them time to ask for the referees at after the interview. Just make sure you contact the referees beforehand to let them know that you are applying for jobs and a possibility of your potential employer calling them.
This should be a rough resume template for you to use for you to succeed in landing your next job.
