PART FIVE - TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL CURRICULUM VITAE


PART FIVE - TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL CURRICULUM VITAE

Is your CV getting enough attention? 

In this competitive job market you may only have an average of 5-10 seconds to capture an employers or recruiters attention. If there are dozens of applications coming through for the same role the person doing the screening may be working on the theory of ‘elimination’ or ‘cutting out the chuff’ before short-listing.    
Below are a few tips to make sure your CV is not eliminated in that initial screening process.

ACTIONS:
  • Don’t waste time or paper with a cover page – it can be a distraction from the more important information that should capture their attention
  • This is your personal and professional sales and marketing tool - don’t be shy about talking yourself up and highlighting all your strengths and skills 
  • Don't leave yourself open to possible ridicule or judgement by using an inappropriate photograph, however a small head and shoulders photograph is worth including if it is deemed attractive, current and professional 
  • Think ‘101 For Dummies’ and make it obvious to anyone reading your CV why you are the best person for the job by using words that match the job requirements 
  • Stick to 4-5 pages where possible – but make sure you list all your work history as you never know what is going to capture the employers attention 
  • Don’t assume that your job title speaks for itself, as every position is different 
  • Briefly explain what the companies you were employed with actually do - you might know but don't expect others to
  • Don't leave unexplained gaps or moves between jobs 
  • Good referees on a CV can add weight and support your application. Include contact details with a statement saying they are not to be contacted without your consent

It is with this in mind that you seek the most competent legal device you can afford before entering into the Company Administration process in the first place.
