Dos and Don’ts of Writing a Professional CV

An expert CV remains key to making a decent impression to both head-seekers and potential employers.Dos and Don’ts of Writing a Professional CV

Brilliant Rules

Do recollect that your resume is gone for time-poor experts. Make it simple for them to presume that you are a strong competitor.

Most importantly, don't lie or embellish reality. It's much simpler to check qualifications nowadays. You'll eventually be gotten out, and after that what was a little untruth is liable to blow your chance of success.

5 Easy Ways To Make Your Resume Be The Best

Pimping your CV… 

Do as much as can to keep your CV to a sensible length. One page is almost certainly too short, two pages may not be sufficient to cover the fundamental details for somebody who has had a full profession, and three pages is presumably the upper limit.

Do utilize an unmistakable, uncluttered design, without an excess of special effects. On the off chance that you need to utilize strong content, space or even edges, feel free—yet remember that a definitive objective is to make the CV a snappy read.

Don’t be tempted to shrink the font or reduce the margins to get more information in. Keep it simple to peruse. On the off chance that you have to say more, utilize another page, however inquire as to whether the additional detail truly includes esteem.

Do use the “reverse chronological” format. Just outplacement advisors appear to support the option “functional” methodology. Structure it like this:
  •     The heading should be your name (perhaps with your most impressive qualification), address and contact details, including both a home and daytime number.
  •     Next, if you want, write a short self-profile, but avoid hype and generalities. (It’s strange how many CV writers are born leaders and strategic thinkers with superb communications skills!)
  •     Keeping it brief, list your education history with dates attended, together with any language skills, and perhaps a chronological job history for clarity.
  •     Then the main part: starting with your current job and working backwards, describe the companies that you worked for and your major achievements in bullet form. Be brief about your earliest assignments so you can describe more recent roles in greater detail.
  •     End with any essential extra information, hobbies and interests if you must, date of birth and family details depending on the recipient’s location—UK companies like to see date of birth, while American ones, fearful of age-discrimination lawsuits, would just as soon prefer you not volunteer the information.
  •     Do keep the style crisp and punchy. It’s usually best to write in the third person without pronouns, and to start sentences with “action” verbs. Choose “Led a major product launch” over “I/He was involved in . . . “

Throw it all in?

    Don’t include long lists of obscure courses you’ve attended on how to be a better time-manager.
    Do include details of higher education degrees, such as MBAs, or executive programmes attended.
    Don’t include pages of obscure testimonials, references, newspaper cuttings and brochures.
    When describing your jobs, don’t assume that the recruiter knows about the company. Always include a sentence or two to describe its size and line of business, i.e., “Microsoft is a global software company with a multi-billion dollar turnover.”
    Do describe your role, and how many people you were responsible for:” Reported to the CEO and led a total team of 200 with seven direct reports”. Make your achievements quantifiable whenever you can.
    If you launched Product X, add that the launch generated new revenues of N22 million over two years.  Don’t leave the reader needing to guess at your importance.
    Do explain all significant breaks in your career or education. Recruiters hate unexplained gaps.

Proofreading is required!

    Check it thoroughly and carefully. Then check it again. Spelling mistakes, typographic errors and inconsistent dates are even more damaging at a senior level than they are to the green college graduate.
    Have another look: does your CV present all the required information in a clear, easy-to-read manner to a busy reader who doesn’t know you? If you can, have another helpful eye look it over. Resume services will evaluate it for a fee; a friend or colleague may do it for free (and faster).
    If you need a covering letter, keep it short and to the point. Confirm your interest, perhaps restating your reasons; address any issues, such as readiness to relocate, that may not be apparent in the resume; include any restrictions on your availability for a meeting.
    If you are going to email it—usually popular with busy recruiters—then use a common word processing application and include a plain text copy, or perhaps send it in HTML. Make sure it will print properly at the other end.
