Sharing Various Perspectives on Resume under Professional Mentorship
On April 7, 2017, the 2015-grade postgraduate students of Sino-European Institute of Aviation Engineering held a seminar of outstanding resume in the 422 classroom. Hosted by the monitor Yang Chuqiao, the seminar invited Wang Jinhong, the Party Committee deputy secretary and Liu Xiaoyu, 2015-grade postgraduate student’s instructor to unveil the mystery of the high-quality résumé in order to provide students with some inspirations to design their own resume with high quality.
During the event, the host presented 6 excellent personal resumes, 6 different intentional positions, 6 different resume styles in 3 different languages. These works not only won the praise and warm applause of the students, but also provided fresh ideas and a full range of creations. Next, the students became very meticulous when they expressed their opinions in three aspects: the internationalization of resumes in foreign languages, the business-oriented style as well as the aesthetic value of the resume. They gave constructive comments to the designers of these works, and in sharing, creative ideas burst out.
At the climax of the activity, during the mock interview, the host randomly selected a resume; the contestant accepted the interview questions of all the students, some of whom imitated “talkative” interviewer, asking “which part of the university life makes you feel the most rewarding". Some imitated "serious interviewers", and asked "What practices do you have in programming?” Many questions made the interviewer nervous, but they really benefited a lot.
At the end of the event, Mr. Liu took himself as an example to advised everyone from three aspects: color adjustment, simplification of the header, and emotional adjustment. He said: “We are both participants and spectators” so as to remind us to start with the out job intention and let the information on the resume be in line with intentional positions. Secretary Wang used vivid examples and vivid PPT to show the golden standards of designing resume in terms of content, wording and template, and gave full guidance from the details of template, formatting, and unconformity. She told the students that the resume is not a written work, but a work done with experience. The sharing improved the students’ ability and skills in creating their resumes, allowing them to expand their perspectives.
