  5. 1. Résumé • Resume is also called Curriculum Vitae (CV), however the later is preferred for academic applicants. , resume is shorter than CV and range from 1 to 3 pages. • Resume is used in the screening stage, early stage of staffing process. • Interestingly, when employers review a résumé they typically only spend ten to fifteen seconds, therefore the top half of a résumé is the prime real estate for important information. • Most of applicants are trying to exacerbate their qualifications and abilities . Studies have shown that 24% of resumes are fabricated • Resume is a document and might be kept for relatively very long time in the file of the applicant. Waleed G, Director Sales and Distribution

  6. Types of Resumes • Reverse chronological résumé; It is a reverse chronological résumé lists a candidate's job experiences in reverse chronological order, generally covering the previous 10 to 15 years. Positions are listed with starting and ending dates. • Functional résumé ; A functional résumé lists work experience and skills sorted by skill area or job function. • Hybrid résumé The hybrid résumé balances the functional and chronological approaches. A résumé organized this way typically leads with a functional list of job skills, followed by a chronological list of employers. The hybrid résumé has a tendency to repeat itself and is, therefore, less widely used than the other two. • Online résumés The Internet has brought about a new age for the résumé. As the search for employment has become more electronic, résumés have followed suit. It is common for employers only to accept résumés electronically, either out of practicality or preference. This electronic boom has changed much about the way résumés are written, read, and processed. Waleed G, Director Sales and Distribution
