Biodata Format / December 15, 2018 / Annabelle Maddox
If would do little good for you to be the best chef in the world and write a resume for a job as an auto mechanic. Your skills simply would be irrelevant in such a case. Finally lets take a look at the third of the top resume formats. Technical Resume This format places a greater emphasis on your overall qualifications. By focusing on your technical skills and showing that you have increasingly taken on greater job responsibilities the technical resume is a powerful format for professionals such as IT workers. It is also common for a technical resume to draw attention to an individuals intelligence. In such cases the technical resume may focus on demonstrating advanced problem solving skills or list your membership in MENSA and similar organizations.
For example in Asian countries Biodata is prominently used in the hiring process. The biodata format (shorter term for biographical data) is usually a one page document containing the basic information about a job applicant. The provided information in this document is the individual s personal data education employment history and character references with lesser details compared to the resume or CV. Biodata is commonly used in the business world though most companies and organizations prefer the resume or CV. This is because these documents better capture the knowledge skills and abilities of a prospective applicant over the biodata which provides limited information about an applicant. Don t however mistake the Biodata format as being irrelevant or outdated because as stated previously in some countries especially those found in Asia the purpose of the biodata is the same as that to a resume.
Its also not the best choice for someone new to the workforce or someone coming back into the job market after a number of years such as a mother who stopped working to raise children and is now returning to work. In those cases and others detailed below a functional resume format may present a more positive picture. The Functional Resume Format What it is. This resume format is also known as a skills resume because it is a summary of your qualifications organized by education experience achievements and skills rather than by job. In fact there is very little emphasis on employer history. When it works best. Many employers and recruiters may prefer the chronological resume format because it is so easy to read at a glance. But it wont serve you well in some situations.
