That’s why you need to create an attractive resume that can capture the attention of HR personnel.

    1. Choose the Right Font & Format when writing a resume

      While writing a resume pay attention to the chosen fonts and formats as the HR personnel judge you through such things. So, we recommend using Times New Roman, Arial, and Calibri fonts. Also, you can use Verdana for headings and Garamond for text. But make sure that the font size is (12-14).
      Also, Talents Hunters recommends that after writing your objective statement, list down your skills and education in a chronological manner then write a brief overview of your experiences.

    2. The Difference between Resume & CV

      Resumes are very accurate and are about two pages maximum. However, it’s recommended to make it only one page but if you’ve many experiences it’s ok to add another page.
      As for the CV, it’s a detailed description about your career including all your job experience, certifications, and courses.

    3. Use Keywords in Your Resume

      Search for the keywords that grab the HR managers’ attention and add it to your resume. Also, you can use such keywords in the HR application.

    4. Complete Your Contact Information
