Building an Impressive Resume
A good CV gets a great response
A CV is the first contact point between you and the company. The more you spend time in getting it right, the more are your chances of getting a positive response.
Give what's expected. Plus a little more
Customise your CV as per the requirements of the job. State some extra qualifications and skills to give you that edge over others. The chances are the employer might show his appreciation for your effort by giving you a call for the interview.
If your CV looks cluttered, it will head straight for the nearest bin. Keep it neat and tiny. Select a neat type with wide margins, use proper headings for section breakers, use bullet points to call attention to important points and make sure the information flows logically. Presentation is as important as the information on the resume.
Be proud of your achievements
It’s important to mention important previous job positions and accomplishments.
Count your achievements
Quantify your accomplishments. The more, the better. And highlight those that are more relevant to the job-description.
