We all do great things, but still falter at the basics. I have seen many people who send a resume having the wrong mail ID and/or wrong contact phone number, so, never receive any call letter from the companies and wonder what might have gone wrong in their job search. I have seen people who lost great career opportunities just because they have neglected the most important part of their Job Search i.e, Resume. Thatís what made me to write this small article that may help you avoid simple mistakes that can cost you much beyond your expectation. Following are the basic things you must follow while preparing resumes, if you want to make a successful job search. Understand that your Resume gives the recruiter the first impression on you and it represents you even during your absence. I think itís worth to spend some time on your resume that fetches you a job for your life.
