How to write CV
« on: December 10, 2008, 11:50:27 AM »
CV Heading
 In the CV heading you can write your general information:

  • Name
  • Surname
  • Local address
  • E-mail address
  • Phone number

 (If applying for an overseas job, please remember to include your international dialling code.) Include your mobile/cell phone number if you are going to relocate soon.

CV Skills Summary

The Skills Summary section of your CV includes your main skills. You should only include keywords in his section, do not go into lengthy descriptions of your skills. The skill summary is also called personal profile.

CV Objective
 The CV Objective, sometimes also referred to as CV Personal Profile states "What is the next step in my career?" This should be a short, concise statement that informs the employer what kind of position you are looking for. The type of position, the role (managerial, supervisor, contractor) should be included as well.
 If you are job hunting it is a good idea to have several CV's with different profiles or objectives. For example, you can have a CV for a sales supervisor and the other for a shop floor manager. Your 'sales supervisor' CV can highlight achievements in this area, and the CV would be tuned to that particular in terms of job descriptions and achievements.

Education on your CV
List all of your qualifications in this section. Include all of your education including certifications from non-academic institutions, especially those that are related to the job vacancy. If you have more work experience than qualifications, put your work experience before your qualifications.

List the relevant information. Your CV may require a little bit of changes according to the type of job you are applying for.  An interviewer is not interested in knowing your father's name on going through your resume. He would rather want to know about your educational qualification, whether you are a fresher and your work experience, if you an experienced job hunter. Prioritize the information in the resume to grab the attention of the interviewer.
