Resume summary
Work experience


CV, abbreviation for the Latin term- curriculum vitae, is an in-depth document containing a comprehensive description of your career journey. It summarises information about your job, education, abilities, and accomplishments, as well as scholarships and awards. Experts classify CV in accordance with three different formats.

Chronological CV
This is the most usual format for a curriculum vitae, and it begins with your most recent position and works its way backwards. If you have prior work experience and want to highlight your talents and project experience, use a chronological CV.

Functional CV or skill-based CV
Instead of a chronological employment history, this format focuses on your abilities and
professional experience. A functional CV, while not as common as a chronological CV, can be beneficial if you have never worked before, have gaps in your job experience, or wish to change careers.

Combination CV
This format combines the chronological and functional CV formats. You may highlight your skills while also providing a chronological employment history by using a combination CV.

Resume (résumé, “to sum up” in French)
A short and concise document, containing a brief overview of relevant experience and history. Resume is made with precision to target a particular job, lengthwise it should not exceed more than 2 pages. If structured properly, a single page resume works the best. Along with contact information and current position, you have to mention your resume objective or summary, followed by work experience, education and skills. Any relevant feature that can outstand your profile should be mentioned in an attractive fashion, that is the key points should be eye-catching. Resume can be written in similar formats as of a CV, that is, sequential arrangement of data for Chronological resume. A deviation from sequence while focusing on relevant skills and abilities of the candidate is characterised under the format of Functional Resume. Although, it is best to utilise both formats in your hybrid resume, also known as combinational format.

For freshers

The choice between presenting a resume or a cv depends upon the place and profession that you are applying for. In academic settings and research-oriented professions, candidates are required to present a detailed CV, which will include detailed career trajectory. For industry- oriented jobs, the candidates need to build a resume, arranging the data in accordance with the job target. Chronological format is no good for candidates having no relevant experience, instead the fresher candidates need to highlight relevant skills and abilities which are prerequisite for the job.

Personality Test

According to Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology  13% of US employers
include personality tests in the interview process, and 68% of employers utilise job/role-
specific skill testing. In the Asia pacific region, especially in India, such evaluation has
become an essential part of the hiring process. Your personality and traits are tested in accordance with the position you are applying for, whether you are fit for the role or otherwise. Varied forms of such tests are in practice, such as in the form of interviews, in-basket exercises, observer rating and self-report inventories like questionnaires. Various psychological tools are being utilised in such interpretation of personality. The assessment is based on these five dimensions.

1- Extraversion : tendency to experience positive emotions,
2- Agreeableness : being cooperative, polite, kind, and friendly
3- Openness : quality of being unrestrictive and unconcealed
4- Conscientiousness : quality of being careful, or diligent
5- Neuroticism : tendency of worrying in an unhealthy way

Also, such evaluation reveals how the candidate absorbs information, his
decision-making skills will support the profile for leadership while problem-solving skills
and time management are necessities for better productivity and job output. They are a
prerequisite for every candidate. You can test your personality online by just answering a few questions in a few minutes, you can also reach out to our services to understand your competency for interviews.
