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
J

  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
    section

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

  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
    work

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

  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

    fonts, Disorganized
