Writing a resume when you’ve gathered more experience is different from resume writing for fresh graduates. Because they don’t have much experience, it’s a tad easier for them to create their CV. However, for an experienced individual, they have to make their resume into a more in depth one,a chronological resume to be more precise.

Everybody’s considering transferring to another work, especially when they’re at their first or second job. They’ll keep looking until they find one that gives them that stability they’ve always dreamed of. That’s very normal but throughout this whole process, you shouldn’t forget your resume.

When you’ve accomplished more, your resume will definitely boom with more content. Writing a resume is really easy. There are templates found in the web but there are still things people tend to overlook. With that in mind, you should keep in mind these few things:

  1. Updating Regularly -“ People often forget this. Just because you’re not planning to transfer soon, that shouldn’t give you a reason not to think of updating your resume. You should do this often in order to keep track of your achievements such as the seminars you’ve attended, the roles you got and many others.
  2. Who You Worked With – Just in case you were able to work with big shots such as CEOs, presidents, experts and many others, never forget to include them. This type of privilege is actually a bonus.
  3. Filter – As you update your resume, do not forget to remove the unnecessary things such as experiences you’ve had in college or anything old for this will be irrelevant and be regarded
    as clutter.
  4. Titles – Of course, you should mention the positions that you’ve held. But in order to attract the employers into reading your resume, you should make sure that you specify it. For example, placing “Accounts Executive” or “Event Coordinator” is much better than writing “Advertising”.

All in all, you just have to remember all the basics you learned about resume writing (grammar, pictures, and so on). But when you finally do plan to apply for another company, keep in mind that you will have to polish your biodata for the better. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Multiple Resumes – This doesn’t mean photocopying your resumes. Because of the fact that you may be applying for different positions at once, you should make a resume for each employer. This doesn’t mean redoing everything. All you have to do is add or remove a few things from your original copy. This is very necessary because some job descriptions vary from one another—each one many have its own requirements.
  2. Proofread not just Once or Twice – Some people often think that if they proofread their resumes once or twice, they’ve already extinguished the typos. Remember, you can never go wrong with re-reading your CV multiple times. Do this to avoid typos—some employers loathe (not just hate) them.
  3. Help – If you’re unsure, you shouldn’t feel ashamed with asking for help. Having others proofread your resume will help you notice mistakes. Some people cannot see the errors in their work until someone points it out to them.
