1. Read The Job Description
You need to make sure that you have tailored your CV to a specific job. You wouldn’t want to be presenting your CV full of achievements but, irrelevant to the job, right?
2. Your Cover Letter Should Stand Out!
Let’s be honest. A lot of employers won’t take into consideration reading your CV if they don’t like what is on your cover letter. Shrug things up and you need to make sure that your cover letter will make your employer look at your resume. Be creative and ace it!
Yes, we will look at your resume. But, oops! We will see grammatical errors. Everyone commits mistakes but, you can always reread it after updating. Or, let someone read it too. Okay?
4. Showcase All Your Achievements
No, this is not bragging. This is only an evidence of how good you are and what ideas have you created. But please, don’t sugar-coat it. Just be honest.
5. You Need To Keep It Simple.
You might be the most outstanding employer of the decade and you have a lot of achievements but please, keep your CV simple. The content should be easy to read and you just need to include some key information about you and the jobs you have had.
