Think that recruiters see thousands and thousands of resumes for the same job position, so your goal is to stand out from the rest. How can you achieve it? Through keywords. That is, put words that connect with the position to which you apply. The job description will go a long way in determining which words to add.


Constant update

It can help you stand out and also allows the recruiter to read a little more about you. It is important not to repeat the information already placed in the Curriculum. Take advantage of the space to provide new information that may be relevant to the position. You could even talk about your skills, strengths, professional aspirations, or experiences. The same happens with the presentation video. The only difference is that with a video they will see things like your speaking.


Include a portfolio
