With so much competition and hundreds of candidates, how are you going to make sure that your potential employer notices you and offer you your dream job?
Well, you may have already build your CV believing it to be good, but you have to make it best and get chosen. A few simple and easy ways will surely help you out, so here is what you can do with your CV:
- Reorder Your Resume:
If you want to get noticed, it is a must to revise and reorder your resume. Your resume is the reflection of yourself, and hence it should bring you on the top of the hiring list. Your resume may be get supported by your conduct if you are dropping it personally, but in case of uploading it online, it must be excellent.
Since, the fact remains that most of the recruiters, look at each resume for 6 seconds, it has to be free of errors and grammatical mistakes. Make sure you have proofread it. Edited it.
- Keep Your Resume Simple:
Long and complex information is a big turn off for your potential employer. In order to make your resume stand out, make sure you have provided your professional and academic background in a simple and easy to skim through format. Don’t give in to the fancy formats. The more clear, simple and to the point information you will provide the better your chances are to land your dream job.
- Focus on the Facts:
It is a very common tactic to add fluff in your resume. The biggest step towards improving your resume is to get rid of the fluff and focus on the facts- facts that you need! Fluff ill not going to take your anywhere (pep talk is something else). Go through your resume and read it critically. Ask yourself what may appear in the resume of the majority of the candidates and what will make you hireable and an ideal candidate? Save the time of your employer and include skills and information that is relevant to the opportunity you are applying for.
- Remove Vague Jargons:
Instead of using jargons that everyone else uses such as ‘good communicator’ or ‘team player’, use effective and lively words and examples to tell how do you use such skills in the workplace given the relevant problem. For instance, you may be a good problem solver of communicator but tell them ‘how’ you have performed this in your workplace. You can include ‘managed team of ten team members’.
- Restructure Your Objective Statement:
Leave the objective statement unless you are graduated and looking for an industry related job or making career shifts. The purpose of the objective statement is to show your potential employer that you have passion for a specific field despite having no previous experience. When you make your objective statement clear, you may hinder opportunities because your employer may take an impression that you are looking for a specific job only.
Always remember to make everything relevant in your resume and unique.
