THE THINGS YOU SHOULD LOOK OUT                             FOR IN YOUR C.V

Having dealt with the tips for writing a C.V, we bring to you some of the things you should look out for when writing your C.V. Follow these steps and have a good cause to get a good job.

Make your work readable for your employer to see everything well. It wouldn't be good if your content is in a way that your employer’s eyes don’t know where to go. It could be either because you've crammed too much onto the page, or haven’t broken up your information into digestible sections. Believe me there are lots of resumes to be read, so if yours is not well written they can throw yours aside because you have created a bad impression of yourself. Present a polished, readable product.

There are many ways to organize information about your experience – there’s a point where employer would want to see something chronological, and something that speaks to the relevant experience that qualifies you for the job. Its fine—and often helpful if it’s thoughtfully done—to organize experience into relevant categories rather than listing individual responsibilities in a strictly chronological account of your life at work. However, there is need to list your prior employers, tenure with each, and jobs you had there. Try to differentiate the summary of your skills from your work history.

Content that seems arranged for some other kind of job than the one for which you’re applying. Your best bet is to give your employer a document that demonstrates that you’re the most appropriate candidate for the position. Give them what they want, don’t bother adding big projects that have no relevance to the position you want , and highlight the experience that makes you a good fit for the position.

Do not let your work contain all the  jargon with no indication of the scope or depth of your experienceIn the interview, it’s going to become very clear that you either know what you’re talking about or you don’t. Please don’t go for the “if you can’t dazzle them with diamonds, baffle them with nonsense” approach. Instead, tell me what I need to know. Learn to give information like;
  •  What did you work on?
  • How responsible are you for the job?
  • What was the scope of your responsibility?
  • How much technical skill did you have/need to do that job?
  • How much independent judgement did you exercise?

 Try not to give you self praises, let your referee do that for you. That is why there was a position for them in the first place.
