21 Microsoft Resume Preparation Tips – By Janella Godfrey, MS

Today I happen to listen, Janella Godfrey, blogger(jobs.blogs.msdn.com)
and recruitment specialist from MS presented a webcast about resume format and
do’s and do not’s when applying for Microsoft. Here is the some of the points
to be considered before applying for MS

  1. Must have accomplishment list
    if you accomplished something.

  2. Toot your own horn, it means
    mention your actual role and project

  3. Must specify progression, promotion
    if any

  4. Must have academic record

  5. Projects/Experience
  6. Leadership if any
  7. Honours received if any.
  8. Grad date should be clearly

  9. Don’t just list the
    project – list role in the project

  10. if the company is unknown – write
    a brief sentence blurb about what it does.

  11. Bullets – no run on sentence
  12. Don’t forget volunteer

  13. All leadership counts
  14. Describe any fundraising/large

  15. Time line for projects
  16. 1 page resume or 2 page resume
    is enough

  17. Apply it with specific code-Software
    design engineer at Microsoft

  18. have a multiple Resumes when
    you are applying for multiple positions

  19. no spelling errors, bizarre
    fonts, Disorganized

  20. not too much padding

program manager at Microsoft. There’s a lot of videos, links to blogs and some
RSS feeds. I thought you’d like this page in particular:
