How do I write a good CV?
CV, or curriculum vitae, basically means "course of life", i.e. a short description of who you are and what you have done. Your CV should be a short, clear and accurate presentation of your profile and experience. The purpose of a CV is to sell yourself in an honest and positive way, so that you come across as interesting to any prospective employers.
Your CV is one of the most important tools in the job hunting process. It is probably your best selling point, and it is therefore crucial that you take the time to perfect your CV. A well written CV can make the difference between your being offered a job interview or not.
- Put yourself in the employer's position
As an employer, would you find the CV interesting? Do the candidate's skills clearly stand out? Will the employer understand the relevance of the candidate's education and experience to the job?
- Make it reader friendly
A CV should not exceed two pages. Accuracy and simplicity will convey your message more clearly. Remember to use standard fonts and font sizes.
- Highlight your qualities
Emphasise your qualities and expertise. If you have considerable relevant experience form previous jobs, you must point this out. Versatility is well and good, but this can be emphasised in the job interview.
- Combine information
It may be an idea to band less relevant experience into a single entry, particularly if you are short of space. For example, all summer and part-time jobs you had whilst studying could appear in a single entry.
- Use positive words
Be aware of word usage in your CV. Words like 'involvement', 'completed', 'participation', 'continuation', etc, can strengthen your candidacy. Your CV must of course be free from spelling mistakes.
