When you start out to create a curriculum vitae or resume, there is no single format that is guaranteed to get you the eyeballs of recruiters. However, there are a few basic rules for creating a resume that you should keep in mind. The primary feature of a CV should be that it clearly explains to the reader 'the achievements made so far in your career by you.' Your CV should be:
*A well-presented, selling document
*A source of interesting, relevant information
*A script for talking about yourself
The main objective of your CV is not to get you the job but to get you an interview. Remember: you are not writing a CV for yourself, you are writing it for the reader.
You can choose to create any obe of the following types of CVs -
A standard two-page printed CV
*A one-page summary CV
*An online CV
Whatever be the format, your CV should include:
*Skills and Career Summary
Don't forget: The ultimate goal of your CV is to see whether it meets the needs of the person making the shortlisting decision. When you submit a printed CV to a recruiter or a potential employer, it is an introduction to yourself that should prompt them to try and know more about you
*Use a good quality paper, and print your CV in black ink on white paper. Covering letters should use identical stationery.
*Lay your CV out neatly
*Don't make the margins too deep or too narrow
*Resist writing lengthy paragraphs - be concise
*Careful use of bold type can be effective
*Typefaces such as Times New Roman or Arial are fairly standard
*Do not use type size less than 11 pt.
*Check thoroughly for spelling or typographical errors - Don't rely on a spell checker.
