Format

Name & Contact Details: This section should have your name along with the contact details, as in your postal and email address, and contact numbers.

Objective: This is a formal introduction to what you expect from the company, and what your motive behind applying in the particular place for employment is. This point will be cleared in the sample given below. However, it is advisable that you study a bit about the firm or institute, so that you can add a few words of praise. Doing this will not only show a positive outlook towards the organization, but also show your interest level and enthusiasm.

Qualifications: This section is meant for portraying your extra qualifications, other than the formal education details and professional or work experience. For example, mention if you are trained in some special form of dancing. Mention your strong and positive points with respect to the job profile. For example, if you have multilingual skills, it can be mentioned in this section, if you are applying to an international organization or an institute where there are many foreigner students.

Professional History: This should be mentioned in a simple, yet detailed manner, as we will see in the example below. But more importantly, what is to be noted is its order. The order of mentioning the details should be reverse chronological, which means, your latest working experience should be mentioned first.

Educational History: Your formal education along with specializations in subjects you think are relevant for your employment purposes, plus others, are to be specified here.

Extra Activities: This section can be very beneficial if you are actively or otherwise involved in some extra activity. For example, if you conduct some classes or are called as a guest instructor, etc.

Personal Details: This part should have the languages known to you, date of birth, etc.
