PLANS & PRICING
While applying for a job, it is important make sure your CV is updated. What’s also important is that it should stand out among the pool of applicants. Here are our tips for making your CV more eye-catching:
Keep it short and structured. There are several templates available online- use one that is well structured and fits your CV to upto a maximum of two pages. Don’t put all the details of all the projects in your CV- leave some things to talk about in your interview.
Tailor make your CV for the job- While it is easy to forward the same CV to every company you are applying to, don’t. Look at the individual job descriptions and skills required. Try and find relevant skills and experiences in your CV and highlight them. Each position may be similar but showing the points that are more important to the organisation will give you an edge over the others.
Data doesn’t lie- Don’t just say that you played an important role in a specific project. Show it by using the numerical data. Talk about sales, amount of profit, number of people reached and so on. Quantifying your work shows employers exactly what you mean.
Here are some quick do’s and don'ts
Don't use cliche phrases like ‘hard worker’ and ‘good communication skills’. Highlight these skills with examples or find synonyms to explain your point better.
Add your LinkedIn profile and other professional networks (and make sure they are in URL formats).
Submit your CV as a print out or pdf, not an editable word document.
Use spell check!
If you graduated more than 3 years ago, give more space to your work experience instead of your education.
