A - HOW TO PREPARE A RESUME


A well designed resume will determine the first impression about you. Therefore, we highly recommend you to spend quality time on preparing a resume that gives the most important information about yourself.

a- The aim of preparing resume:
A well prepared resume is a summary, explaining who you are, your skills, knowledge and what you aim.

If a resume is not prepared and presented powerful enough, it could not compete with the other candidates’ resumes and achieve the goal. The main purpose of a resume is to catch a call from your interested company to interview.

b- How should be a well-prepared resume look like? 
The required information that should be in the resume of new graduates are as follows:

Personal Information: Name, surname, address, phone number, e-mail address, and birth date etc.

Career goals: Describe your career goals concisely as well as your desired job.

Education: Describe your education background; beginning with the last one, your studies and information about additional educational programs if any.

Job and Internship experiences: Mention job/internship experiences (such as project/periodic experiences); beginning with the last one, your responsibilities and your achievements.

Skills related to job: Include your technical and non-technical skills and knowledge that you consider as important. Software and language skills, technical knowledge and competencies may be added in this section.

Extra curricular activities / Leadership positions: Provide information about interested areas, rewards, extra curricular activities such as student club membership and any leadership positions

References may be written as per your request.

c- The most important factors for P&G in recruitment process:
The tools we use in recruitment process (Online Assessment – Reasoning Test – Interviews), are designed to evaluate the future performance of candidates and select the best candidate. The most important criteria to screen candidates’ resume for P&G are as follows:

University: Since English skills are a necessity at all positions in P&G, studying in universities with English education is one of the most important criteria.

Extracurricular Activities: Our interviews are competency and behavioral based interviews and intended to learn and analyze past experiences of candidates. The candidates, who have taken roles in extra curricular activities, may have more opportunities to improve various skills such as leadership, innovative thinking, collaboration, which are important for P&G. We highly recommend mentioning them in your resume.

Internship and part time job experiences: The candidates, who have internship and part time job experience, may have chance to improve business related skills. Hence it is important to clearly mention about these experience.

International Experiences (Exchange Program): Describing international experience in a resume is also an important issue. Such kind of an experience play important role in improving change management and team work skills.

Grade Point Average (GPA): We do not find any correlation of GPA and success at P&G, so we  do not take the GPA into consideration.
