Much of people’s HR companies with whom I have had the opportunity to speak, mainly value the knowledge and experience acquired in the workplace. Ie not seeking both a person who knows the theory but looking for people who can implement the practice.
Usually this type of learning we acquire almost without realizing it, based on the daily work and precisely why sometimes are not aware of the vast amount of knowledge and experience we have gained.
To be aware of this, from time to time it is appropriate to stop and dump everything we have learned in our curriculum. In this way we will be able to take a historical record of what we have learned, while maintaining our updated resume.To help in InfoJobs we simplified the process of editing skills in the curriculum.Want to try it now?
Define your knowledge considering the company
first thing to keep in mind when we add our knowledge to the curriculum is how the company uses this information. There are three main uses:
-When. indicates explicitly offer expertise in the work
-When. reviewing resumes enrolled bid
-When. searches the database of candidates My-Opi.
Knowledge in Job
When a company publish a job offer express their needs in different fields of information (job, province, education, type of contract, etc..). And the knowledge that should be the person who chooses the job.
therefore, a good recommendation is to draw our knowledge as do companies . The closer we are in the way we express more empathy and possibilities have to be considered (for example, using them in the cover letter).
Performing this analysis frequently is also interesting because it allows us to discover what our knowledge about that the market demands and to establish strategies to cover our weaknesses.
Knowledge Search by keywords
One of the most common ways that companies use to find candidates is seeking resumes by keywords (like you do you when you want deals ). These searches may apply.
-A deals recorded in the CVs.
-A CVs that are visible in database.
Either way, good writing skills provide our recruiters find us. Conversely, poor writing we may become “invisible.”
It is important to adapt language used by the recruiter being concise and avoiding all that is superfluous.
Examples of knowledge expressed incorrectly
After a first analysis of the use of field knowledge the candidate InfoJobs, these are the most common mistakes:
- Languages : The curriculum InfoJobs already have a box to indicate explicit language. The companies have an option to search by language. Report known languages in the wrong place it will not find us.
- Jobs: knowledge is NOT a job. Should not be set in this field texts as “Cash”, “Repositioning”, “Technical …”, “Head ….”, “Assistant …”, “Responsible …”. This information must be considered within the section of experiences. If we place the information in the wrong place we are sending the recruiter do not understand the difference between knowledge and a job.
- Courses, Carnets, Certificates … : Any word beginning with “Course …”, “Carné … “,” Certificate …. “is not indicative of knowledge as such. There are other places for this information.
- Redundancy words, concepts need not be repeated, for example
. “Knowledge of Java” should be “Java”
. “Microsoft Word program” should be “Microsoft Word”
“Software Autocad” should be “AutoCAD”.
“Using Spreadsheets” should be “Excel”, “OpenOffice” explaining the tools in question.
“Expert in Adobe Photoshop” should be “Adobe Photoshop” and indicate the level of knowledge with the relevant option.
Other words that we must beware: All those skills that begin:
“All”, “Good”, “User”, “Good”, “In”, “Improved”
In any case we lie on our resume. Sooner or later the recruiter will find out.
