CV – Do’s and Don’ts !

 

Hello Jobseeker! 

Today, we would like to give you all the tools you need to create the perfect Cv! The Cv that will help you to land the job you truly deserve! 

We all know what the purpose of a Cv is to explain who you are and what you have done in the past! However, most of the job seekers get lost in the process and send a poorly made resume. Our job is to help you and to give you a list of rules to follow: 

DO

  • Customize your resume every time. It is important to customize your CV for each position you would like to apply to. Putting effort into your CV and trying to fit as much as possible with the company requirements is necessary!
  • Highlight your achievements. It is important for a company to understand the main missions you executed in the past. It will help them to understand your profile. 
  • Proofread and proofread again. The Cv you are presenting to a company will be the first impression you will make. And you have only one chance to make a first impression! So, seize it and make sure that your CV is typo/mistake-free!  
  • Keep it updated. A recruiter needs to know everything about your previous professional experiences in order to find the best fit! Please, update your CV each time you accept a job offer! 
  • Consider using an online template. We recommend you to use “canva.com” a free website with professional Cv that will catch the eye of the recruiter! 

DON’T

  • Misrepresent your education or job experience. Recruiters need you to be honest about your past experiences. This is necessary to make the process fruitful for you and for the company. We will in the end always know if you lied or not.  
  • Get too personal. We would advise you to not put personal information, such as your casual photo, height, Social Security number, marital status or religious affiliation, in your resume. In fact, the Cv is made to showcase your professional experience and only for that! 
  • Worry about using exact dates. Using the month and year you started and left each position is totally sufficient.
  • Experiment with a crazy format. Stick to a clean, easy-to-read format. 
  • Include your high school education if you’re a college graduate. But if you’re still in college, or a high school diploma is the highest academic qualification you hold, you can include your high school under your education.

Your resume is the key to land your dream job but remember that you are not alone in this process. You can contact a professional recruiter for tips regarding your Cv, to prepare for an interview and salary negotiations, and other career advice.

Best of luck,
