I am attaching an article which I have prepared on the basis of the feedbacks I got from various recruiters. I have also tried to provide some snapshots from original resumes and tried to highlight the mistakes which we used to make while applying for any job.
I hope you'll like it.

I think most of the resume begin with personel details like name, phone number, email add etc... I didnt understand the point that one should begin with professional details thanks

:-DGunjan, the post is filled with good informaton for anyone that is drafting and preparing a resume. For the novice, this is a good tool that will help them present themselves in a positive manner to a company, organization or recruiter.
People should take quality time to prepare the resumes/CV for it is the key that will unlock the door to getting a face to face interview. Most don't put stock into it, they think that it is just another piece of paper..:confused:
Appreciate you sharing some great informaiton.:icon10:

Dear Gunjan!!!! You are on the point and thanx a lot. I would like to add one more and make it a dozen - AVOID CLISHES. One gets really sick reading ad- nauseum repeated phrases like "I will leave no stone unturned .... " as though he is applying for stone cutter's job. While attempt to market self one may overdo in most of the cases, but understatement and candidness also make interesting reading.

Dear All,
Thanks a lot for appreciating my efforts. I am happy to see such a gr8 response.
Well, these are only those points which I consider to be blamed for disqualifying resumes, but there might be something more beyond this.
I am keen to know if anyone of you has to add on something.
Any other reason for rejections, which you can share with us.

Hi Prashant,
Thanks for highlighting a new point.
I do agree that sometimes people pretend to be on a high note and use exaggerated quotes and statements, hi-fi objectives. Though such things dont get the reviewer's attention.
nice one

Dear All,
thanks a ton.
yesterday when I logged on to citehr, I saw 60 views and no replies.
I became a bit disappointed to know that not a single person replied to my post which took a week's time in getting prepared.
But now, I am very happy to see you reviews about my post.
very soon I'll try to post another informatiove article.
Thanks again

Dear Gunjan Sarojwal.
We find your article is quite uesrful. Another thing we find "OBJECTIVE" at the top of the resume where in canddiate fill with full of jargons as if to make the sentence attractive. In most cases it is taken as ritual rather than really understanding the meaning of the "objetive". When I interview the candidates,it is regret to note that many candidates do not even know the purpose and the significance let alone they know the meaning.
Here they fail to score. Hope I am right and agree with me as most cases the resumes are prepared by some professional people. The resume will reflect ture colour only when it is compiled by the candidate himself.

Not a very good post. I do not think a real professional would make such mistakes. This is suitable for those applying for a low cadre job

Dear Gunjan,
Thanks a lot for your article based on feedback with various recruiters. It's quite informative and an eye-opener for those who are frequently making use of their resume for new job openings or fresh placements. Good job done.

9. Covering letter/ note’s description- If your covering letter is one third or half of your resume, you may lose chances of getting shortlisted and why would a recruiter spend 10 mins in reading the information, as provided below:
Grateful if you can elaborate on this point, as this seems very relevant but I could not gather the intended advise

Its a good material for people with a few years of experience. However would appreciate if some tips could be provided for people with many years of experience in finance industry. Thanx
