How to prepare a resume for a large company?


Your loan processor resume should not list your entire life history, starting with a part-time courier job.

Write about how long you’ve been in finance and what companies you’ve worked for. If possible, leave contacts from your previous jobs. Describe the completed projects and the tasks you encountered during development.

If you do not work as a freelancer and have not worked in companies – tell about training projects, which is enough to assess your knowledge. If there is nothing and for some reason you cannot skip a published job – remove the experience section altogether and pay more attention to the technology stack.

Yes, some sections can be removed from your resume. If you have nothing to say on the subject – just do not say.

How do I get in touch with you?

Some recruiters like to print out resumes and don’t sort emails – in that case, you should have contact information at the end of the document.


Not all employers give a quick response – you may be contacted in a month or two. You have already forgotten about the job, and then the call comes. This is why it is best to make a copy of every resume you send: for example, if you sent a resume to three companies, you should have three versions of this resume on a disk with a note which went where. That way you avoid embarrassing situations where you can’t remember the contents of your own resume.

If it didn’t work the first time, that’s okay

Think about what a recruiter is working with: for example, he has one job and 200-300 responses that need to be sorted. For you, that response may be a big deal, but for the recruiter, it may be completely ordinary, one of many hundreds. Don’t be offended and don’t worry if no one responds to your resume. As they say, “do good and let it go in the water.”

Know that 80-90% of job responses at any major company are irrelevant (those same “blind” responses). If you have responded to a job that really suits you, you will stand out from the crowd.

The recruiter evaluates you not in a clean field, but in comparison to other candidates. If you are great, but someone more suitable responded at the same time for the same vacancy, his chances are higher.

Responding is always a probability job, so it’s better to send out 50 resumes (but all are the right ones) than to put everything on one. Which means you don’t have to try to put your whole soul and show your best side on every resume. It’s enough to show that you qualify.

Remember: an employer is not looking for the best of the best, but the best of the right.
