Your Last Job: Recruiters look for this information to figure out your current status and why you might be looking for a new job. It also helps them filter out candidates suitable from a pool of applicants. In case of freshers, this can be replaced with the last place you interned with or any project you undertook as part of your academic curriculum.
Career Progression: Recruiters see the experience you have had in a particular industry or job role and in your tenure how much you progressed. Did your responsibilities increase with time or did your job role expand over time to cover multiple areas of function? This helps a recruiter to understand if you would be able to take up the role they are hiring for.
Keyword: Every recruiter looks for keywords related to the job they are hiring for in a resume. Many recruiters have accepted that they often use ctrl+F to scan resumes and shortlist candidates for interview. So make sure that you include relevant keywords related to your industry and position in your resume. But do not go overboard and stuff your resume with keywords. That's a strict no-no.
Personal Projects: Recruiters often want to know more about the personal projects you are working on in your free time. This helps them understand your passion for your industry. If you wish you can also provide links to your personal accounts or websites. But make sure that a recruiter does not want to see your holiday pictures but are interested in seeing if you have contributed in any way to the industry you are working in or are looking to work in. Share links to anything you have published online or your profile on professional platforms such as LinkedIn etc.
Overall Organization of the Resume: A very easy thing to do. Free your resume of typos. Do not use slangs. Check spellings and grammar. Your resume should show how clearly you can present your ideas.
