Our Recruitment Process

 

Tips to help your Resume Stand Out

 

Read the job descriptions thoroughly!

It’s always best practice to read any job description thoroughly before you submit your resume. Reading all available information and observing essential details will prepare you for your interview and increase your chances of fully understanding the responsibilities of the role. Then you’ll be able to make informed decisions about whether the job truly matches your skill set.

Showcase your education and professional development

This section gives our recruiters a background on your educational qualifications, skills, and interests. It also demonstrates your ability to succeed, your commitment to learning, and the relevant knowledge you have acquired.

The education and professional development section depends on your career level, your experience, the exact job you are applying for, and how recently you have finished your education.

For instance, recent graduates are expected to prioritise this section at the top of their resumes, while experienced professionals should place their work experience before the education section.

Follow a reverse chronological order from your latest educational qualification and work your way back to your previous qualifications.

You can highlight your professional development by specifying a completed training course, certifications, workshops, and seminars relevant to your industry, which will give our talent acquisition team a holistic view of your resume.

Use a career snapshot that attracts recruiters

You may consider adding a summary section to your resume that acts as a ‘Career Snapshot.’ Usually this would be a short paragraph or bulleted list describing your professional experience, so a talent team understands your career goals before reading your resume.

By adding this section, you’re able to explain the things that make you unique in your field of work and value you offer an organisation. This has strong potential of helping your resume stand out from a busy application market.  Ensure to include the following items to catch the eye of our talent acquisition team:

  • Tailor it to a specific job opening.
  • Your job title and years of experience.
  • Your accomplishments.
  • List your area of expertise and the most essential skills relevant to the role.
  • Sum up what you have to offer (the value you bring to our company).

Highlight Your Relevant Experience

This is one of the most important sections of your resume, where you’ll be able to really sell your talents to a recruitment team. It is recommended to begin by listing the position title, organisation name, location, the number of years you worked with your previous employer, achievements, and responsibilities. The work experience section adds credibility to your application.

Ensure your work experience entries are always listed in reverse chronological order, beginning with your current job, and navigating into the past.

Always Provide Quantifiable Achievements

It’s always recommended to provide results instead of responsibilities. Replace task-oriented statements with results-oriented statements. Metrics can highlight your accomplishments and give our recruiters an impression of how your job duties benefited your previous organisation.
According to LinkedIn, presenting quantitative numbers in your resume has a greater impact than outlining your job duties and responsibilities.

Benefits of Quantifying your Accomplishments on Your Resume

  • Providing numbers on a resume gives credibility to our recruiter.
  • It shows a results-oriented nature.
  • Sets you apart from other candidates.
  • It provides better clarity to our recruiters about what you have accomplished in your previous roles, impact of those achievements.

Let’s see an example of measured results vs adding responsibilities on resume.

We spoke to Infotel Group’s Talent Acquisition Team about their top tips and insights when it comes to what they look out for in resume applications:

How does Infotel group foster diversity and inclusion in its hiring practices?

         
 

We have published several articles relating to diversity and inclusion in our workplace on our website. Throughout the group, we work hard on gender equality. Infotel UK is an equal-opportunity employer, and we pride ourselves on our diversity. That includes gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, or disability status.
