Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Resume?

A resume is a factual document summing up your career history: your work experience, skill sets and accomplishments. It informs your reader what you have done in prior roles, and how you can continue to contribute value in your next role.

At least that’s how most jobseekers view their resumes.

But the truly effective jobseekers (those who actually land the role) recognise that a resume is more than a piece of paper.

Your resume is your sales pitch. It is your marketing tool to capture your reader’s attention so you get called in for an interview.

Treat your resume as a sales tool, and you’ll see your interview callbacks skyrocket.

We go into more detail on how to write an effective resume that gets you interviews in our Ultimate Resume Guide for 2021.

How to Write a Resume?

Writing a resume can be nerve-wrecking. Especially if you haven’t written one in a while. But don’t fret!

Your resume should be clear and concise. Avoid any fluff or unncessary details. Get to the point.

Sell your skills in as few pages as possible. Get the reader’s attention by letting your achievements and skills speak for themselves.

What Sections should I include in a Resume?

As a rule of thumb, these are the sections you absolutely should have in your resume:

  • Executive Summary
  • Key Skills and Areas of Expertise
  • Work Experience
  • Significant Achievements under each Work Experience
  • Technical Skills
  • Miscellaneous Information like your Notice Period and Languages

Some optional sections that you could insert in your resume include:
  • Personal Projects
  • Volunteer Experiences
  • Conferences and Publications

We’ve written resumes for jobseekers in Asia Pacific for over a decade, and have found that these resume sections are the most effective in capturing your reader’s attention and marketing yourself. We go into extensive detail on how to write each section in our Ultimate Resume Writing Guide.

How Long should my Resume Be?

Our Resume Writing Consultants get asked this question all the time.

For mid-career and senior-career jobseekers, a 2-3 page resume would suffice. If you just started your career, or are an early-career jobseeker, a 1-2 page resume works.

We dive into further detail in our Ultimate Resume Writing Guide.

What is the best Resume Format?

If you’ve been browsing through the web for Resume resources and career advice, you might have seen that there are different types of resume formats: Reverse-chronological Resume Format, Functional Resume Format and Combination Resume Format.

Most of these formats are invented by Resume Builders that create software-generated CVs. Different resume formats and templates give them an opportunity to “sell” more value to jobseekers.

However, as Resume Writers who write CVs by hand, and as former HR veterans ourselves, we can confidently state that the type of resume format you use isn’t as significant as these Resume Builders make it out to be.

Instead, the secret to effective Resume Writing that will land you job interviews lies in a format that highlights your top skills and Achievements in a way that is easiest for your reader to digest and understand.

Once your reader understands your value-add and relevance to the role, they are more likely to call you in for an interview.

As CV Writers, we advocate for clarity when writing your resume. We dive into further detail in our Ultimate Resume Format Guide.

How do I Write a Cover Letter for my Resume?

Most jobseekers have the impression that a Cover Letter is useless or unncessary for your application.

This couldn’t be further from the truth!

Employers still read your Cover Letter. In fact, a Cover Letter should complement your Resume by speaking directly to the reader. It is your opportunity to tell the reader directly why you are the best candidate for the job.
