Have you lost work due to COVID-19?
Last week, we took you through Step 1 towards finding work – Register as a jobseeker. Today is Step2: Update your resume.
- Your resume is a very important document. Employers will almost always ask to see your resume.
- A resume is a short document that summarises your working life, with some other relevant personal information added as well.
The first part of your resume is the ‘Personal Information’ section. This is where a lot of people get confused about what to include, and what to leave out. Here are some guidelines:
- Current phone number
- Current email address
Include ONLY if it’s relevant to this job:
- Hobbies or interests
- Membership of an organisation
- Affiliation with a group
Do not include:
- Date of birth or age
- Marital status
- Number of children
