No worries guys. Am here to help you out with the problems associated with this topic. Okay, so basically making thin RESUME isn’t a child’s play. Making it is one of the most challenging tasks. It obviously requires quite a good set of skills to make a perfect and THIN RESUME.
But for the problem that how to manage to add so many things one has to add to their RESUME that will impress the RECRUITER is a big one.
So, let’s discuss some solutions to this problem.
1. FILL UP THOSE WHITE SEATS :
Confused? Like seats, what is that?
Okay, seats are basically referred here as the blank spaces you have in your RESUME that can be used. Use those white spaces to fill in more about what you have to do to get the job.
Instead of using white spaces for section separation, use lines to separate out those sections. Fill in those white seats with the art of your life’s achievements, qualities, projects, links, etc.
2. USE BULLETS AND NUMBERING :
Does it not look good to have information arranged properly one-after-the-other, neat and clean, arranged? It does, and so I suggest you to
1. Use some bullets and numbering to add more to your RESUME.
2. Make your information neat, clean, properly arranged.
3. Use specific words that can replace a sentence, so that you can save space for more addition to your RESUME. This will make your THIN RESUME look more attractive and add more spaces for more information to add.
3. USE NARROW MARGINS :
A neatly bordered page with some margin is THE ICON OF FORMALITY.
Now, as per your requirement, you need more space for adding more information.
Then why not use NARROW MARGIN and NARROW BORDERLINE instead of those more bold and super-fancy ones.
This will give:-
➢ Sleek and elegant formal look.
➢ More writing spaces.
4. REDUCE CONTACT INFORMATION :
Hey! Now listen up, you are absolutely not going to get any gifts or any present from the company. So, there is no point in providing your colony, house address, etc.
Just provide quite enough information to make contact with you. No need for a long detailed address and address of the rental home, etc. Just be specific about your CONTACT INFORMATION. Do not waste that precious space writing your ADDRESS. Instead, use it to increase your
shortlisting probability. Moreover, your RESUME is going to look more fancy, attractive, and impressive.
5. NO WORDS ONLY NUMBERS :
Now come-on who loves to read paragraphs after paragraphs. The same is the case for the RECRUITERS.
So, be more specific, use NUMBERS, not alphabets. Add more spices to your RESUME, make it heart-touching. Smartly use numbers like :
1. Your College Percentage / CGPA.
2. No. of projects completed.
3. No. of Internships / Industrial Training.
4. Any previous work experience, etc.
Well, now this is going to give you 2 advantages:-
1. It gives you more space for adding valuable information.
2. Gives an attractive look to your RESUME.
6. TRIM THE SUMMARY :
Remember, a resume summary is supposed to summarize your best qualities for the job. It should not have more than five lines intro or 10 plus bullet points.
If your resume summary is this long, there is a chance that the recruiter will not read through all of it because it is obvious you did not bother tailoring it to the position you are applying for. Trim your resume summary to three lines of text and five to seven bullet points max.
