Biodata Format / December 13, 2018 / Helga Bell
Your resume format is something that you should give importance aside from all the details in your resume. In this highly competitive job market it is very probable that for every position you apply to you will be competing with a number of hopeful candidates. It is no wonder then that most employers would only give submitted resumes a quick scan and decide whether to continue reading or not. Aside from all the usual skills and experiences being thrown at him the resume format is one thing that he will normally notice first. You may send your resume by mail or as an email attachment. Whatever the case if your resume format is not very appealing chances are the employer will reject it outright after giving that quick scan.
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.
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.
