It is through the resume that you will introduce yourself to the employer and say why you want a certain job vacancy. Know what to write in this document.

put together a resume to be sent is the first step for anyone looking for job openings. He is the business card that will tell the employer if an interview is worth it.. But it seems complicated to create such a document if you have never worked before. In that case, what to put? And if you already have some professional experience, how do you describe them in your resume?

There are some templates available on the internet for you to download and enter your information. In all of them, the format shows you that it is necessary to be objective and succinct when putting together your resume. Using topics to tell what your experience is or what your professional goals are is a good option. That way, you don't have to spend time with tiresome explanations.

Another good tip when putting together your resume is to adapt it to the ad you are responding to. If you are applying for a specific position, prepare it for that area of expertise. But if you're going to post it on employment platforms like LinkedIn, make it more generic. This way, different companies will be able to analyze your profile.

How to assemble a resume: what to write

  • Personal data: at the beginning of the resume you will make a kind of header with personal information. You must put your full name, address with zip code, city, cell phone, telephone number for messages (if you have one) and e-mail. Age, gender and marital status do not need to be informed;
  • Goals: if you are looking for your first job, write this down. If you are applying for a specific position or are interested in a certain area of activity, please inform us what it is. Be direct and don't lump multiple goals together;
  • Qualifications: in this part you will say what your strengths and differentials are. You can put your skills, extracurricular courses and experiences that are positive in your professional training. If you're looking for your first job, you don't need to post this topic.
  • Academic education: you will inform your last level of schooling. For example, if you graduated from high school, then say you have completed high school. If you have a technical course, graduation and post-graduation titles, inform them. In all cases, it is necessary to include the institution where you studied, the course and year of completion;
  • Professional experience: those who have worked previously must state the name of the company, length of service, job attributions and tasks performed in the resume. For those looking for their first job, it is possible to mention tutoring, volunteer work and internships.
  • Complementary courses: in this part, you can list qualification or professional improvement courses, workshops, participation in seminars. As in the academic training section, indicate which institution taught the course, when it took place and the course load of the certificate;
  • Languages: say what languages you speak. Here it is important to be honest and not lie about your fluency. If you do not speak any foreign language, inform that you speak only Portuguese. If you have knowledge of another language, state your level of fluency (basic, intermediate, advanced and fluent). Tell the truth, as the employer may ask you about it in the interview;
  • Computer skills: tell us which programs you know and your skill level in each one. If you have taken a course to learn how to use some software, indicate which one it was.
  • Other information: here you can talk about other skills, such as international experiences, leadership qualities, organization and good teamwork, for example.

How to put together a resume: know what not to put

  • Photograph: only send your photo when the employer asks for it;
  • Document title: you don't need to write “curriculum vitae” or “resume” at the top of the page;
  • Personal pronouns: do not list your experiences in the first person. Instead of saying “I published a scientific article”, just say “publication of a scientific article”;
  • Negative information: if you don't have knowledge in a certain area, just don't list it. If you don't have professional experience, just remove this part of the resume. It is better not to write anything than to highlight negative points;
  • Family name: you don't need to say who your parents, husband or wife and children are;
  • Personal references: contacts of people/companies that can talk about your professional profile should not be included in your resume;
  • Reference letters: it is not necessary to attach them to your resume. If the employer needs one, he will ask for it;
  • Reason for leaving previous jobs: again, avoid highlighting negative points. You don't need to explain on your resume why you left a job;
  • Salary claim: especially if you are looking for your first job, do not say how much you intend to earn;
  • Certificates of courses taken: you should only inform what the course was, when it took place and its workload. It is not necessary to confirm this information with the attached certificate;
  • Date and signature: the professional resume is a document that is constantly changing, so you should not indicate the date it was put together. You don't have to sign it either, because the employer knows it's yours.

How to assemble a resume: highlights

When writing your resume, it's important to put the points you want to draw attention to first. For example, if you took an extracurricular course that doesn't fit your intended job, leave it at the bottom of the list. The same goes for previous experiences. Give priority to what matches the position applied for and put it first on the list.

  • First job x experience: if you are looking for your first job and have no previous experience, highlight your education and qualities. Show in your resume skills such as good communication, organization, leadership instinct, knowledge in languages and computers;
  • Professional goal: you will indicate only when you are applying for a specific job or sending a resume to a certain company. Show your interest in that role or workplace, but don't say you're available. It makes it look like you'll take any vacancy. Talk about your willingness to take on new challenges and learn. If you don't know exactly what your goals are, just don't say so;
  • Occupation area: young apprentices and interns, normally, do not have experience or do not yet know what their professional goals are. Therefore, it is interesting to put in which area they want to work. If you don't know which professional area to work in, just don't say so.

How to assemble the resume: formatting the document

Your resume is the first contact that the employer has with your professional profile, so be aware of mistakes in Portuguese and the formatting of the document. Once you've entered all the information, proofread everything and make sure there are no grammatical or spelling errors.

The font of the text (typeface used) is also something to be taken into account. Use something that is traditional, such as Arial or Times New Roman, in size 12. Line spacing should be 1.5. For the format, use A4 size for printing and avoid going over two pages.

Very long resumes are tiring. In addition, most will be viewed over the internet via cell phones. On the screen of these devices, reading a long document is difficult. A tip for putting together your resume is to use the available templates, with ready-made formatting.
