Hi, I’m SUPERMAN and I WANT you to hire me !

Superman

Let’s look at a very common resume myth. Most of us often use top section of the resume to write “Objective” or “Career Objective”. It is a 2-3 line statement which goes something like “A superman or wonder woman with extraordinary abilities to save the planet. I aspire for a position in a fortune 500 company where I can utilize my superpowers for the benefit of the organization and my personal super fast growth”. Or atleast, that’s the idea we are trying to convey, right?

There’s no harm with a decent self-branding now and then, but blowing your own trumpets with general statements such as above without any evidence to support them and then telling the recruiter what YOU WANT (I aspire…) may not be the best of ideas. Here’s why:

Typically for most positions, a recruiter may have just a few seconds, as experts say less than 10 seconds to look at one resume, and i.e. if they look at a resume at all. During those 10 seconds, the first thing they expect to see is your name, picture, address etc at the top. But after that, do you really want them to spend these few seconds looking at how arrogant you are and what you want from the company? What’s In It For Them? The recruiter, the company?

Better to start off with your experience, or if you are a fresh graduate, with your educational qualifications. If you absolutely MUST write something at the top replace the objective section with “Summary”. Use this to mention very specifically and to the point what you have to offer.

An easy way could be “Your Title/Profession + Experience + Key Accomplishment”. Like for a fresh graduate, it could be “Fresh Mechanical Engineer with exposure of organizing/winning XYZ international competition” or “Mechanical Engineer with experience of 3 internships in Multinational companies” for an experienced professional it could be “A PMP Certified Project Manager with 5 years experience of leading 1 Billion Rupees projects”.


Again, writing objective or even summary is just an old myth, but if you really want to, write a summary instead of an objective as this way you are selling your best feature to the recruiter and trying to make a good first impression.

Sad but True..

“Wondering how easily the cussing becomes acceptable in the society. It starts with a bunch of people uttering F word infuriating a majority around them, cools down to leaving frowns on few faces and then becomes acceptable by the society on a whole. Ask around yourselves and people will justify the open usage of this word by saying “Oh, you gotta be kidding me, the F word has become an adjective now, go get a life dude!” (Copied)

Neelum Valley – The Hidden Paradise in Pakistan

Not sure what image of Pakistan you might have in your mind, but I can bet you didn’t have the image of a paradise. Here are some pictures of one of the places in Pakistan that is heaven on earth!

Neelum Valley is situated at the North & North-East of Muzaffarabad Azad Kashmir, Pakistan running parallel to Kaghan Valley. The two valleys are only separated by snow-covered peaks, some over 4000m above sea level. Excellent scenic beauty, panoramic views, towering hills on both sides of the noisy Neelum river, lush green forests, enchanting streams and attractive surroundings make the valley a dream come true.
