Lot of international or impactful resumes I see, mention the achievements or duties performed group at organization level under Work Experience section.
Organization name - Work done - Achievements
Indians usually don't follow this, and write those bullet points under each project that they worked on withing the organization. Yes Indian resumes are lengthy (often) which I don't like.
Organization name - Project 1 - Work done - Achievements - Project 2 - so on...
Former one definitely looks precise and help grab attention of reader. Downside is that reader can't really tell if you did/ achieved that stuff in just one project or multiple.
On the other hand, Indian format gives definite idea about number of projects the candidate has worked on and what he specifically did or achieved in those. Downside is that such resumes become lengthy and reader may not even go through whole document.
How to best balance this?
Note - I am not saying the former format will/ does not work in India. It can be considered if it has all the relevant information. 2 pages work best no matter where you are!
Edit (I am not able to add comment)
- What is
resumetag intended for then?
- I am not asking on how to or what to write in resume! I am just trying to find an approach to balance two formats.
- I already have 3 page resume, and trying to reduce it further to 2 pages without loss of important information. And hence seeking advice.
