Writing CV: 10 Don't You Need To Know

We understand that writing a cv can be tedious, however, all you need to do is to make sure your professional description and education is well polished.Writing CV: 10 Don't You Need To Know

Below are the 10 things not to do in order to achieve success;
1. Don't use photocopies of your CV to apply for jobs.  Always use new computer print outs each time you apply for  jobs.  

2. Don't write curriculum Vitae on top of your document.  The document itself is a CV and so does not require that.  

3. Don't use fanciful characters in your presentation.  Underlining and shading should be avoided. It presents you  as a clown. Use simple and easy to read characters. Be  professional in  your write up.  

4. Avoid unnecessary information like marriage or family  background.  

5. Don't exaggerate as employers have a way of detecting  that.  

6. Don't falsify your age.  

7. Avoid spelling and grammatical errors. Spelling and  grammatical errors will ruin your chances if you do not heed  this warning. 

8. Ensure that you do not have dirt on the paper when you  send it to an employer.  

9. Don't use one CV to apply for all jobs. All jobs are not the  same and so are their requirements. The knowledge,  experience, skill and ability you need in a banking job is not  the same required as a field project officer in a non-  nongovernmental  organization. If you list skills and experiences  that are not in line with what the recruiter is looking for, you  have just showed him how irrelevant you are for the job. You  must tailor the content of your CV to the requirements of each  job.  

10. Employers have no time to go through lengthy CV, be precise. For applicants with no experience, your CV should not be more than 2 pages while with experience, it should be more than 3 pages.
