Check Templates / December 19, 2018 / Heidi Wallace
By this I mean you have a spreadsheet that you use daily weekly or monthly. You may have to modify a few cells but the remainder of the spreadsheet is exactly the way you want it. It may be tedious to modify the cells but it is easier than recreating it from scratch. Guess what you have the basis of a template! If you wanted to make this spreadsheet into template you would need to take two more steps. The first step would involve modifying the spreadsheet to display only the data that remains the same. If you are constantly changing certain cells you would leave these cells formatted but blank. The last step involves saving this spreadsheet as a template. Once this is done you would always have access to a clean spreadsheet that is formatted the way you want and ready for your modifications.
The career objective should explain the candidates focus on the job applied for. Experience Summary The experience summary is where the recruiter mainly concentrate on a resume. Always begin the resume with a nice experience summary. Keep in mind that resume writing is not about the past but for the future so never go too deep into the previous job details. Just brief the work experience with roles and responsibilities and mention the key achievements accordingly. The awards and promotions gained on the previous company add high value to the profile without doubt. Education Details Education details should be mentioned on the resume in an inverted pyramid style. The highest or most recent qualification must be mentioned first. Schooling details can be furnished only if the school is well recognized.
The background of the area where I want my team to enter the data is always a lighter color with the headings backgrounds being formatted with a darker color. This strategy is in line with that used in software development. You will notice in applications like Microsoft Word you always type the text in the lighter area and the darker area is the headings. The flip side is that if your background is a light color then the text being entered must be a dark color and for the headings if your heading backgrounds are dark then the text should be light. Always be carefully when using the colors Red Green and Blue on templates as people with color blindness can find those colors confusing.
