Reviewing Resumes!

April 10, 2010 at 11:58 am 19 comments

Many mass communication Institutes send us resumes of its student for placements at our Agency. I recently got 4-5 and each one followed a same format which I can still overlook ( though I am not convinced about it) but all five had mentioned same hobbies, same goal similar assignments and projects! Why did they care to change their names and other details???

I can quiz and question the students about the (il)logic behind it IF I ever get around to calling them for an interview. A resume is first impression that you give to an organization about you, only if someone cared to tell them first always last(s) !

PS: Maybe I should write a post on 10 things a beginner must know about Professionalism followed by one on PR ???

    Call them! Call them! And can I please come and interview a few applicants? It will be a lot of fun. You guys can just sit back and watch. My evil brain is already working overtime thinking about it.

    I think you should post an ideal resume for them. Why not make yours? When was the last time you wrote a resume for yourself?

      honestly, I haven’t needed one – I got my (present) job while i was still in college based on my interaction with the BOSS.

      in the process of making one- started with a SWOT, lets see when i wrap it up πŸ™‚

    ah! Student life i tell you. This is what happened at my engineering college too. Once a guy got recruited, he took it upon himself to get everyone else in his group a job, and more often than not, the CVs of his friends would be strictly modeled on his own CV, since it worked once. πŸ™‚

    • 14. delhizen  |  April 29, 2010 at 4:08 pm

      well Mr. Pai tha CV couldn’t helped you since you changed your line of work.. but did it benefit the others ? Please tell me it didn’t

    I have seen resumes where people forgot to changes even the basic details like branch,Address…. and Gender too πŸ˜›

    Anyway saves time. You dont have to go through all the details on each CV πŸ˜›

    • 16. delhizen  |  April 29, 2010 at 4:12 pm

      see I knew this is a prb across board.. wat to do !

  • 17. Sapna  |  April 21, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    By branch I meant stream of engineering. Was talking of my college days

    Once my one classmate ask me for the resume as he wants to make his own and need some idea. And after few days i’d collected resume of whole class and what i see?? Many of my classmate haven’t change the objective it was directly copied and i see that some classmate forgot to change the name of the software they know. 😦
    it was just like they are writing tutorials. πŸ˜‰
