DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CV AND RESUME – TIPS TO MAKE RIGHT ONE FOR YOURSELF

Standard
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CV AND RESUME – TIPS TO MAKE RIGHT ONE FOR YOURSELF

Whenever we apply for a job these days, the first and foremost thing we need  is a document that lists all the details about us. It is required so that the recruiter can get to know all the information about us in one go. It is the basis on which we present ourselves to others. And it is the basis on which our prospective employer decides about our fate. In other words, it plays a major role in any recruitment process.

Commonly we call such a document a resume or a CV. But a fact unknown to most of us is that resume and CV are two different things used differently. Now let us see what is the difference between cv and resume.

CURRICULUM VITAE (CV)

  • A CV is a document that is about two to five pages in length.
  • It summarizes the entire career of a person i.e all the academic details and prior work experience info.
  • But along with this, it also contains information such as extracurricular activities a person participated in, his/her hobbies and interests, long term career goal, awards, scholarships,entrepreneurship achievements etc.
  • All the details in a cv are organised in a chronological order.
  • Once a cv is made, you don’t need to change it again and again for each type of a job.

RESUME

  • A resume is a shorter version of a CV. This is usually not longer than one page.
  • This document is not as general as a CV is. It is edited each time we apply for a different job.
  • This is because when we make a resume for ourselves, we need to keep in mind the job post for which we are applying.
  • So unlike a CV, resume should contain only career centric information such as prior experience,educational details,skills etc.

TIPS TO MAKE A GOOD CV/RESUME

TIP 1 : MIND THE LENGTH!!

If it is a resume, try to finish it up in a page and if it is a CV don’t make it longer than 3-5 pages. Nobody has got the time to read a long story. So be short and precise.

TIP 2 : MAKE IT LOOK ATTRACTIVE.

You should know how to sell yourself. Everybody makes a CV/resume but yours should stand out from the others. Then only there is a better chance of your selection. So try to make an eye-catchy document that sets you apart from the others.

TIP 3 : NO GRAMMATICAL/SPELLING MISTAKES

Just make sure this never happens!!

TIP 4 : STATE ONLY WHAT IS IMPORTANT

Don’t go overboard by stating anything and everything. List down the things you wish to specify. And select those seem more imporant and relevant.

TIP 5 : STATE ONLY WHAT IS TRUE

You should be able to justify everything that you have stated in your resume/cv. So never try to be fake!

TIP 6 : PROPER FORMAT

Your cv/resume should have a proper format. It should be ordered and systematized with proper spacing. Use bullet points as far as possible.

TIP 7 : HIGHLIGHT ACCOMPLISHMENTS

This is very important as you need to tell the other person what you have achieved so far in your life. So state your accomplishments explicitly.

Do keep these tips in your mind while preparing a CV/Resume and then you’re good to go!!

GOVT JOB OR PRIVATE JOB : WEIGHING PROS AND CONS OF BOTH

Standard
GOVT JOB OR PRIVATE JOB : WEIGHING PROS AND CONS OF BOTH

All of of us have to make some major decisions during the journey of our life. Choosing a career path for ourselves is one such decision.

Most people who wish to take up a job face one big question – Which sector to choose to work in? Govt./Public  or Private. This dilemma is not as trivial as it seems. It very much decides the course of your professional life.

But the first thing we need to understand is that every individual is different and unique.So while one job might suit one type of a person, it might not suit the other person. It’s completely upto a person to analyze his/her style of working and what kind of working environment will be suitable to him/her. If you are clear with this, taking decisions would be easier.

Along with this you also need to analyse certain things about these work sectors. So today we are giving you an analysis of both these options and listing their pros and cons.

FACTORS WHERE A GOVERNMENT JOB SCORES WELL

1. JOB SECURITY

This is the main factor that drives people towards the government sector. Once they get the job, there is no fear of getting laid off! A government organisation is supposed to function even during times of poor economic conditions.  And even if employees don’t perform well, they have no fear of losing their job.

In the private sector, there is absolutely no job security. One can lose a job at any time and private companies are quite affected by the economic scenario at all times.

2. FIXED HOLIDAYS

Government organisations provide a fixed number of holidays for its employees. So they can apply for a leave without facing any problem. In addition, fixed government holidays are also there.

Private sector is usually is more rigid in this context. Taking a leave is not that easy. Also the number of official leaves is very less.

3. LESSER WORK LOAD

Government jobs have less work load as compared to the private sector.Employees don’t have to put in any extra time to complete their work. This makes people more relaxed as they know for how many hours they have to work.

In the private sector, people usually complain of too much work load. They might also have to put extra hours of work even on weekends.

4. BENEFITS

A government employee enjoys a lot of benefits such as free healthcare for his/her family, housing facilities, provident funds, and other allowances.

Private sector doesn’t provide such benefits especially to people who are not at the managerial level or haven’t worked with the company for long.

5. FIXED PROMOTIONS & LESS PRESSURE TO PERFORM

An employee gets a fixed number of promotions and salary increments during his/her job tenure. Unlike the private sector, promotions and increments are not performance based. So the pressure to perform is obviously less.

6. STABILITY

A government job provides stability in the sense that a person remains employed until he/she gets retired. So while people keep out looking for a better option to switch to, they have something to hold onto in case they don’t find one. This stability factor doesn’t exist in the private sector.

FACTORS WHICH MAKE PRIVATE JOB A BETTER OPTION

1. PERFORMANCE BASED GROWTH

In the private sector, if you work hard, you are sure to excel and get promoted. And if you don’t ,things remain stagnant. This factor makes people work hard which in turn benefits both the individual and the company.

In the govt sector, there is a fixed pay scale which doesn’t change on the basis of an individual’s performance.  So while it might be good for average performers, it might not make those people happy who really work hard.

It has also been seen that people at good positions in the govt sector are payed much less as compared to their private sector counterparts.

2.  SHORTER DECISION MAKING PROCESS

The decision making in private organisations is quick and efficient. There is no delay in work. Deadlines are followed.

In the govt sector, decision making is a long and tiring process. Due to this, delays occur and work suffers.

3. TARGET DRIVEN APPROACH

People in corporate settings follow target driven approach. They set goals and conquer them well in time. This is because they have pressure to perform well.

There is no such pressure in the govt sector. So there style of working is different and of course less efficient!

4. NO BOUND ON SALARY

Companies always offer fat pay packages to talented and hard working people. And their is no restriction on salary of an individual. So if a person keeps on performing well, earnings increase proportionally.

So there is no fixed pay scale like the govt sector has.

SO HOW DO YOU DECIDE FOR YOURSELF WHAT TO GO FOR?

Assess yourself on all the factors we have stated above. See which ones are of more importance to you. Also ponder on what kind of a person you are – your way of working, ability of taking decisions, whether you like taking risks etc. And then only decide whether to go for a govt job or private job. Good luck!

IMPORTANT TIPS TO PERFORM WELL IN A GROUP DISCUSSION

Standard
IMPORTANT TIPS TO PERFORM WELL IN A GROUP DISCUSSION

WHAT IS A GROUP DISCUSSION? WHY IS IT DONE?

A group discussion is one of the most common means of interpersonal communication in any professional environment. It involves a group of people gathering to discuss a common topic.

Group discussions can be held for taking decisions or simply for sharing of views on any issue/topic. Whatever the reason be, these discussions are an inevitable part of any corporate setting. And thus it is very important to have a know-how of GDs.

This is why many companies and b-schools include a special GD round to test the candidates.

HOW ARE YOU TESTED IN A GD?

Main criteria on which candidates are tested through GDs are :

  1. Behavior in group
  2. Listening skills
  3. Speaking skills
  4. Confidence level
  5. Vocab & Grammar usage
  6. Ability to bring out new ideas
  7. Leadership skills

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO PERFORM WELL?

Here we give out a few tips that you can follow to perform well in GDs.

TIP 1 – MIND YOUR LANGUAGE. NO SLANG. NO INFORMAL WORDS.

This is the most common mistake people do while participating in a GD. They don’t use formal language. Make sure you use decent and formal language during the discussion.

TIP 2- THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK. ORGANIZE YOUR IDEAS.

Before the discussion begins, be clear with the topic in your mind. Then start forming ideas, organise them and then only speak up. Don’t deviate from the topic.

 TIP 3 – LEARN HOW TO MAKE AN ENTRY

Initiate the discussion if you think you can. It gets you noticed.

Even if somebody else starts the discussion, learn how to make an entry. You can either follow up by agreeing with anyone’s statement or even disagreeing with it but don’t be rude.

TIP 4- ALWAYS USE POLITE TONE

Your wrong tone can give a very wrong impression even when what you’re speaking is correct. So always be polite and calm.

TIP 5 – DON’T BE ADAMANT & NEVER GET AGGRESSIVE

Yes you aren’t fighting a world war! It’s just few people coming together to share their views. Others won’t always have the same ideas/views/opinions as you have. Respect that and maintain your equanimity.

TIP 6 – LET OTHERS SPEAK TOO

Don’t speak incessantly. Even if there is nobody to interrupt you with his/her point. The strategy should be to give out your view but also let others do that.

If you find someone hasn’t had the chance to speak even once, ask him/her to do so.

TIP 7 – MAINTAIN GOOD GESTURE AND POSTURE

Body language does matter a lot. Be confident. Make eye contact with everybody. Sit upright. Don’t make too much hand movement.

We hope we’ve helped you through these tips. If you have any tips to share with us, drop them in comments below. 🙂

COMMON MISTAKES MADE DURING JOB INTERVIEWS & TIPS TO AVOID THEM

Standard
COMMON MISTAKES MADE DURING JOB INTERVIEWS & TIPS TO AVOID THEM

An interview is an indispensable part of one’s professional life.Nobody lands up with a job without giving an interview.  It is not only a way of selling your skills and qualities but also a medium to reveal your personality traits to your prospective employer. On the other side, it helps the employer to decide whether you fit in for the job post he/she wishes to fill up!

Preparing for interviews is not easy. There are a lot of a factors to be kept in mind while doing so. Also during each interview, we face different type of people and different situations! But there are some common mistakes that people make during interviews. Today we list them down and also tell you ways to avoid them. So here we go!

  •  Not having any knowledge about the company/firm

Whenever you set out for an interview, make sure your research the company first. Check the company’s website. Find out about the company history, services provided, important clients,annual turnover,rivals etc. This shows you are actually aware of where you’re heading!

  •  Not being truthful about yourself.

This is one common mistake people do. They brag about themselves! This can be a huge turn off for your employer. Yes you need to talk about yourself to sell yourself but make sure you don’t keep on blowing your own trumpet. Talk only the relevant and important and that too in a decent tone.

  • Not having the patience to listen.

Many of us aren’t patient listeners. This can be harmful during interviews. Pay full attention to what is being asked, understand and comprehend it, and then give the answer. Never be in a hurry to speak.

  •  Not knowing how much to say

People often make the mistake of speaking more or less than required. Both cases give a wrong impression. You should know how long/short your response should be. Practice the art of giving adequate responses to questions commonly asked during interviews.

  • Wrong posture and gesture

You should know how to present yourself in front of others. Sit upright with your head straight. Keep smiling no matter how much you’re being grilled. Do not fidget with things and make direct eye contact with the interviewees.

  • Wrong dress up

The way you dress up talks a great deal about you. In professional environments, there is a strict dress code that must be followed. So make sure you dress up formally for your interview.

  • Not being confident

Low confidence can be a huge turn off. You might be the most skilled out of all candidates, but if you aren’t confident in front of the interview panel, they won’t consider you for the job. They need people who are bold and poise.

  • Not asking questions at the end

Interview is not a one-way road. Both parties are supposed to ask and answer. So frame some questions about the company in your mind which you can ask at the end of the interview.

Do keep these things in mind while preparing for interviews. And then you are good to go!
