Declaration: The information stated above is true to the best of my knowledge and belief.

 

Now, let’s uncover the mystery of declarations in resumes:

 

1. What Is a Declaration in a Resume

 

A declaration in a resume is a statement confirming that all the information included in your resume is true to the best of your knowledge. Declaration statements in resumes must include the claim that all facts provided by you are correct, along with your current location, date, and signature.

 

Is a Declaration in a Resume Necessary?

 

Adding declarations to resumes is a standard practice in India. Government organizations and more formal workplaces consider the declaration mandatory. Companies that are more relaxed may have stopped requiring it from job candidates.

 

Always add the declaration in a resume when applying to:

 

  • Government organizations
  • Academic institutions
  • Large corporations

 

Since it might be difficult to guess from the job advertisement what is the style and organizational culture of a particular company, it’s best to always add the declaration in the resume to be on the safe side.

2. How to Write a Declaration in a Resume

 

There’s not much freedom when it comes to declarations in resumes. After all, these statements are very formal, so it’s important to stick to the guidelines.

 

This is the formula for declaration statements in resumes:

 

the details/facts/information +provided/stated/given above +is/are +true/accurate/free from errors/correct/genuine + to the best of my knowledge/belief.

 

You might add something to the formula, but it’s best not to skip anything from it.

3. Where to Put a Declaration in a Resume

 

People are highly visual beings. They often remember the looks of people, places, pictures, or documents, without remembering any facts about them.

 

That’s why you shouldn’t be surprised when I say that your resume must look its best. Recruiters hate applications that look sloppy. Bad formatting screams unprofessional to them. Even such a small thing as a declaration in a resume must have its proper place.

 

Here’s how to choose the best placement for the declaration in resumes:

 

  • Place the declaration statement at the bottom of your resume.
  • Add the location and date on the left side under the statement.
  • Sign the document on the right side under the declaration.

 

That doesn’t sound complicated, right?

 

Now, if you finished writing your application and remembered about putting the declaration in the resume, you can start preparing your cover letter. Once it’s ready, it’s time to rock the world!
