GET NOTICED: INSIDER TIPS TO WRITING YOUR BEST RÉSUMÉ & COVER LETTER

by Intel Malaysia

Your résumé is the first thing a recruiter will see in determining whether or not to bring you in for an interview. Even though you know you will dazzle the recruiter and hiring manager with your story, you are wasting your and your recruiter’s time if you cannot get your foot in the door. Thus, Mr. Alex Goon from Intel Corporation is here on TVEX 4.0 this week to give guidance on writing the best résumé and cover letter!

As highlighted by Mr. Alex, a résumé must be treated as a frontliner and our self-advertisement where the company will evaluate you according to their need. Best résumé and cover letter are all about being structured and reflect yourself aside from providing all details required by the employers. Hence, it is a must for the candidate to prepare an understandable résumé for the purpose of screening. Imagine being a recruiter that needs to review numerous résumés and cover letters sent in by all of the candidates, which definitely can be an energy-draining process. Analyze what you want to convey and what you don’t want to include in your résumé to avoid any mistakes. Therefore, Mr. Alex encourages students to review and revise their résumé because you only get one opportunity to make a winning first impression!
