Being Saudi Arabia’s leading job-search portal, we receive a lot of resumes at Mihnati. With time, we have learnt that certain kinds of resumes uploaded onto our website have a higher chance of being chosen by potential employers than others. Luckily for you, we have identified certain essential elements that you should definitely incorporate into your Mihnati profile in order to achieve the best results.
Writing a Professional Summary
Once you apply for a job opening through Mihnati, hiring managers are provided with a sample of your resume in the shape of a professional summary. A proper professional summary should be able to clearly highlight who you are, the experience you have to offer and the skills you possess – and how these elements can be combined to add value to the organization being addressed.
Setting a Mihnati profile Picture
The intention of uploading your picture onto your Mihnati profile is to establish to potential employers that you are a professional. This means that a passport style picture of your face (head shot) in either white or blue background should work just fine – there is no need to upload flashy or casual pictures such as selfies, as this would not allow hiring managers to take your application seriously.
Writing About Past Experience
When writing about your previous working experiences, be sure to keep the information being provided relevant and concise – stick to simple formats and avoid adding any glitz and glamour. As always, the idea is to present your accomplishments in an easy-to-read and professional manner. You can using bullet-points and paragraphs to streamline the contents of your resume.
