5 Tips on Writing an Exceptional CV

ReKruiTIn.com - Exceptional CV
If you are applying for a new job, nothing can be more important for you than your CV. This is the ticket to the job of your dreams, and therefore, you cannot compromise on quality. A great looking CV, which is able to drive attention towards you, is just the thing you need to get your foot in the door. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, this is the one thing that they cannot get right. Here’s how you can ensure that your CV does not find its way into the trash pile of a prospective employer.

     1. Get Your Basics Right – Research shows that the average time a recruiter spends looking at your resume ranges from 5 to 7 seconds, and this is all the time you get to capture the recruiter’s attention. Therefore, you should spend some time on the format of your CV and make sure you are able to adequately highlight the sections that are most relevant to the recruiter. This could be the relevant skills, relevant experience, or relevant education and achievements. Use your own discretion.

2.       Presentation is Very Important – A survey shows that 76% of CVs are discarded because of un-professionalism. If you have an unprofessional email address, your CV is sure to be discarded. The chances of rejection grow to 88% if you have an unprofessional photograph on the CV. Your CV is not your social networking profile. Let the employer know you are professional, through the presentation, language and structure of your CV – which is a formal document for all intents and purposes.

3.       Length Matters – Most recruiters have scores of CVs to go through. If you send a 5 page resume, the weight of it would be daunting enough for the recruiter to discard it. A great CV is not only professional, but also clear and concise. It conveys what it intends to in very clear terms, without being contrite. Do not aim for length, in fact, try to keep everything as short and sweet as possible.

4.       Understand the Job – Last year, of all the jobs applied to through internet portals, only 35% of applicants were actually qualified for the posting. This means, most candidates would apply to a job without even being certain about the requirements of the job. This does not bode well for them. Therefore, even if they have a stellar CV, the document is simply not tailored to the needs of the recruiter, and therefore, is of no use.

5.       Tailor Your CV – Each job demands a specific skill set and experience. If you understand what the job entails, and know it is suitable for you, do not make the mistake of sending out a generic CV. Instead, tailor it for the posting and make sure the employer knows why they should hire you for the advertised position.

With these simple tips, you should be able to beat the competition and make sure that your CV stands out. If you follow these tips to the letter, your CV wont have to ultimately end up in a discarded pile with those who may be less qualified, experienced or suitable for the role you applied for.

In Which Industry Should I Make my Career?

“Every child is gifted, they just unwrap their packages at different times” – Anonymous

There are many things common to this world, some things that we don’t like to be associated with and the others that we love to be a part of, but the only thing each and every one of us would like to be known for is our childhood. They say that stumble, fall and move forward but never look back, but having said that, everybody wants to go back and re live their childhood. Talking so much about the early days, the only people that make this dream come alive are the two forms of god – our parents. The oldest Goddess we know of is our Mother and we all would love to go back to that tender womb and float for another 9 months as fearlessly as the wind blows. It is said that the grandfather and the grandson have a common enemy, which is the father. A father, who wishfully has to portray the antagonist, is indeed the guiding force behind all that we are and all that we tend to achieve.

Growth in industries like aeronautics, water management, environment studies have also widened the scope for students. India’s Mars mission is one example of changing times for the country and a welcome sign for students interested in space studies.
