Biodata Format / December 13, 2018 / Magdalena Schultz
Usually Biodata is collected in a fill in form. The information that is collected from a Biodata form is the first impression a recruiter or company sees of a potential employee and the first chance the potential employee has to land the ever important interview. The Biodata form is a collection of questions that retrieves information about that person s life and work experiences. The form allows a person to express their opinions beliefs and values. This gives recruiters and potential employers and idea of what type of personality one has based on prior behaviour. Biodata also gives an idea of what employees want to achieve in the future. What future job aspirations they have and where they see themselves.
In the Philippines a biodata is a simple "fill-up" form. It is also used in skill-intensive jobs - for welders machine operators construction jobs and simple house and store helpers. It is important for you to know what your requirements are before applying for any position. With its short length the biodata can be an effective tool for the hiring manager to have a quick glance about one s education and experiences and thus evaluate its relevance to the specific job vacancy. From the past employment experiences written on the biodata one can correlate it to the future job performances of an applicant.
PDF RESUME This type of resume is delivered to the employer in PDF format (Portable Document Format). You write your resume in Microsoft Word or some other word processing program format it convert it to PDF and save it. The file can be sent by email as an attachment. The employer needs to have a PDF viewer or Adobe Acrobat in order to view it. Sometimes this can pose a problem because of computer viruses. People are wary about opening attachments to emails. If the employer wants you to submit your resume by this method go ahead and do it. More than likely they have software that can detect viruses in attachments. WEB PAGE Some people use a single web page to display their resume. You have your own personal website.
