Five Ways To Increase Your Chances of Getting The Perfect Job?

1. Write a catchy Resume Headline: Your Resume Headline needs to be interesting, and has to reflect your experience and skills to catch the attention of  the employer. The more precise it is, the more chances of it getting noticed by employers. For example, writing “Experienced in BPO/KPO industry” is too generic, but “3 years experience in BPO Non Voice Process” highlights your experience and your skill set precisely.

2. Update the right keyskills: The keyskills you enter in your Resume/CV need to reflect your professional strengths. What is the best way to figure that out? Here is a tip: Fill the blanks in the following statements: I am proficient in ______; I have developed expertise in ______; I have done projects in the field of _____; I have a certification in ______; I have a sound knowledge of _____.  Whatever you write in these blanks are your ‘keyskills’. Write your Technical skills, soft skills, and tools and softwares that you know well.

3. Update your profile regularly: Make sure you update your profile at least once in 6 months. 6 months is a long time and most people add new skills, take up new responsibilities, or complete new projects in that much time - and that information should be reflected in your resume.  Moreover, your total years of experience changes in 6 months and needs to  be updated. So if your resume is outdated by more than 6 months you may be losing out on those new job opportunities.

4. Fill in relevant fields in your Resume/CV: Employers search candidates based on various parameters of candidates: such as Functional Area, Education, Current Salary, Keywords, Skills, Designation, Company name etc. This means there are multiple ways in which your Resume/CV can show up in front of a employer. So the more information you enter in your Resume the more the chances that your resume shows up.

5. Updated contact details: Ensure that the contact details updated are recent and includes your current residence address, e-mail id and mobile number.
