A biodata, or resume, is a brief introduction that is given to employers when applying for a job. It gives a description of the past achievements of the person. It provides the employer will a small window into the professional past of a person whilst leaving out enough so that the person will have something to talk about during an interview. No two resumes out there are the same, although they all tend to follow the same pattern as they all contain the same information and are laid out in a similar way.

The first part of your resume should state your full name, your age, date of birth (date/month/year or month/date/year), your residence address should they wish to contact you by letter, your home phone number, your personal cell phone number and your email address. Remember to keep your email address professional with just your name, no silly nicknames. Create a new one if necessary.

Underneath this you should then write a career objective. However, do not drone on for pages and pages. Keep this section short and sweet, approximately two to three lines long.

The next section should be a table with several rows going down and five columns which will show your educational qualifications. You should write the following in each column: The qualification you received, the name of the institute where you studied, the University you studied at, the percentage or grade you received and the year that you passed. Fill this section out accordingly.

The next section should also contain a table with rows going down and four columns going across. This table will show your work experience, although if you are a fresher with no work experience then leave this section out completely. The four columns going across should be the organization you worked for, the designation, your job responsibility and the amount of time that you worked there.

The next section should be dedicated to any extracurricular activities that you underwent and any achievements that you received outside of school or University.

The next section should be about your personal attributes e.g. Leadership, working well as a team etc.

Finish off your resume by talking about any extra professional skills that you have gained e.g. A course in working with computer spreadsheets. Don't confuse this section with the previous one about extracurricular activities.

Bio-data is the data related to your biography. A single job opening may solicit thousands of applications. The recruiter has just a few minutes to decide which candidate has to be short-listed and whether the bio-data deserves consideration. A well written, concise, and to the point Bio-data will definitely catch the eye of the reviewer

Writing a Bio-data is an art. It should express and reflect the personality of the candidate in totality. Bio-data should be so well framed that it makes you stand out from the crowd, ultimately leading to a job interview.

The first aspect to be covered is a brief summary about oneself, your experience, education, special skills, technical skills, strengths and accomplishments. All information you furnish should be in tune with the requirements of the job. Give details of all volunteer work, skills, accomplishments, extra curricular activities, awards, honors you have received, academically or professionally.

Include your contact information address, phone number, mobile number, e-mail id, URL. An objective statement, giving an idea about the person's objective in prospective job can be included.

Names and contact details of a list of persons, who can be referred to, may or may not be given. One may include other personal information such as willingness to travel.

Organise all data systematically, make a proper presentation, include only relevant information. The Bio-data should have a good format and style.

A student biodata should include: Name, age, DOB, address, telephone number, and email.  It should also include the institutions you have attended, the years you attended, what qualification you received, and, if relevant, your percentage or placement.  Your working history should also be included which will detail any employment and volunteering you have done.  If there are any gaps in schooling or employment, it is a good idea to explain these i.e. Illness, traveling etc.  You will find a sample format here:

Getting a good job is becoming more and more tough job due to competition in the market. Even after 20 or 30 apply, candidates don't get the interview call. For reaching to the interview table candidates need to make an eye catching bio data or resume. There are two kinds of bio data, one for fresh candidates and another for already employed people. If you are a fresh graduate so obviously you should focus on your skills and competencies in your bio data. Describe the memberships of any societies and associations of your school and college. Also show your computer skills. If you already have experience and describe your duties and responsibilities in the form of bullets in your resume. And most important thing is that change your bio data for every job according to its requirements. Also include your personal details and be very care full while giving your contact details. Also include references which know you better and keep them informed when you apply for the jobs. If you include all the above mentioned information in your bio data it can easily take you to the interview table.

Your bio-data should contain your full name in the order of first name, middle name (or names) and last name, your date of birth in the order of the day, the month (in words) and the year in which you were born, your permanent postal address (or addresses) and telephone numbers for contact, your academic qualifications (starting with the most recent qualifications), your work experience (starting with the most recent job), your hobbies, a set of three to four references (with their postal addresses and telephone numbers), your recent passport-sized photograph, your signature and your application letter (along with a covering letter).

It must be kept in mind that your bio-data must be typed on a quarto-sized sheet of bond paper which is white in colour, clean and does not have any creases on it.

A resume is a marketing staff. It gives you the ability to "sell" their skills and experience of a potential employer. Must be used to emphasize the strengths - you can do an application stand out. Your goal is to get the employer to interview you.

Employers are using CVS to decide who to interview, or CVs can be sorted to determine who not to interview. Employers can throw all the sloppy resume. The presentation is very important.

A bio-data or a resume or curriculum vitae tells the company that you have applied for a job in, something about you, and unless this is favorable to you, your application will be rejected outright. A bio-data can therefore be the most important part of applying for a job, in fact, it can be even more important than the tests or interviews that you may attend before you submit your application. Therefore, pay attention to what your bio-data says about you, and remember that it has to stand out from among a thousand others.

Your resume must be brief, interesting and informative, and it must state essential information clearly and precisely. These can be your personal, educational and any professional information that you would like to share with the management. However, first and foremost, make sure that you do not use the word 'bio-data' as this is now obsolete; replace it with CV or resume. All the Best!
