Tips for your resume/CV applying-for-a-job-2

Writing a compelling and engaging resume/CV is an art in its own right. And it can be quite a challenge. But don’t sweat it — we’re here to help. We’ve provided some tips and tricks that explain what makes a good resume great and what exactly Dell recruiters are looking for.

Describe your strengths and expertise and support them

Connect your qualities and strengths with real-life work experiences and include specific examples.

List achievements as opposed to responsibilities

Rather than providing a long list of responsibilities, focus your resume on what you have achieved in past roles, including money or time saved, processes improved, revenue generated and so on.

Include an objective

A concise and meaningful statement describing your career goals is very helpful to the reviewer.

Use effective titles

Employers will most likely form an opinion about your resume in a few seconds. Use this time to grab the attention of your employer. Think of using an effective title that compels employers to keep reading. It’s recommended to be as descriptive as possible to give the employers a good idea about the nature of your past work experience.

  • Bad title: Computer Programmer
  • Good title: Senior Programmer — Java/J2EE

 

Be active; inspire engagement

Action verbs engage your reader. They’re dynamic and clearly communicate your experiences and achievements. Examples include: coached, created, managed, developed, implemented, designed and so on.

Share your volunteer experience

Demonstrating how you spend time outside of work reveals a lot about who you are. Companies, especially Dell, are interested in this!

Proofread it...twice

Then, ask a trusted friend or colleague to review. They may find mistakes you missed.

Keep it brief, but one page is not necessary

The shorter, the better. However, some people may need more than one page — particularly those with many years of experience.

Make sure it is up to date

This includes making sure your contact information is current. Keeping up with your resume on a regular basis ensures that all information is relevant.

Find focus and flow

Make sure your resume has a unified message about who you are and what you’ve experienced. Use your objective to tell your career story, and think of other content — work history, education, qualifications and so on — as important chapters in that story.

Be honest

Your resume is a "living document" that will be edited and updated throughout the course of your entire career. Think about what you write and include, as it can reflect on your character if the information is inaccurate.

At Dell, your hard work gets noticed. Bring us some new talent and we'll recognize that too.

Our employee referral program is designed to encourage Dell team members to refer their business contacts and qualified friends for positions within the company. We believe that an active referral program is a critical part of our recruitment strategy and provides huge payoffs to the company and our team members.

On average, Dell hires over 30 percent of our external hires through referrals directly from our team members. At Dell, we have found that referred team members are more motivated, more productive and perform better overall.
