No employer has the time for an unprofessional resume. Eto lang ang one and only chance mo to make the best impression about who you are and what you can offer to your prospective overseas employer. Kailangan mo ng isang da-best at panalong panalo na resume to stand out in the sea of other resumes, you need to avoid all of the following mistakes that can make your resume look unprofessional.
1. You don’t care about the final look
The look of your resume can either make the HR manager read it or dedmahin lang. You may have the most impressive qualifications for the job pero kung hindi naman kabigha-bighani ang dating para mapansin then how will anyone know the stuff you are made out of?
It is not sufficient to have the requisite qualifications; the manner of presentation is also what matters. May kasabihan nga tayo: "the way you dress is the way you will be addressed”. The aesthetic appeal of your resume is part of what makes you a professional. Don’t ignore the final presentation; make it look easy and compelling to read.
2. You don’t sell your strength
You need to remember that you are a product waiting to be chosen and what the business wants is a product that brings benefits. Many applicants play down their strengths, but this is a mistake because no matter what you did in your last job or the qualifications you possess, kailangan mo ibenta ang sarili mo to the employer.
Even a beginner needs to show with confidence what he or she can do. The employer wants an employee who can sell himself well because if you can’t sell yourself, how will you sell the business you are to work for?
