What you get with this Hourlie
So maybe you've just graduated or you've decided to go after a new job opportunity and you would like your CV written or revamped. Good call! Generally speaking there are two main qualities that make a good CV, and one of them would definitely be that each time, your résumé needs to be targeted to the specific contractor that you're applying to.
The second main quality that every good CV has is a good layout! A good layout is important not only because your CV needs to be coherent and readable, but because the layout gives you the opportunity to highlight aspects of your character that will take you where you need to be: face to face for an interview. So what makes a good layout?
With competition out there being overwhelming you've got about 10 seconds to make a good impression and be considered a serious candidate for the job. There are a few key-points you need to focus on in order to achieve this:
1. Your personal statement. Your statement at the top of the first page needs to be short, objective, and personalized for the specific position. Avoid turning this into an ego-trip or selling yourself too short. Instead, focus on exposing a good work ethic that will tempt the employer to keep on reading.
2. Education. This is the part of the CV where an Ivy League graduate truly has a chance to shine although, given the fact that an increasing number of employers pay less and less attention to certifications, it is not as important as the next part.
3. Experience. Here is where you get to flaunt the value you bring to your work. This is really important. Instead of listing every job you ever had, focus on those where your executive decisions, critical thinking and hard work, made a positive impact on your job, your employers or your field. Try to show them what makes you an asset, standing out from the slash-pile.
4. The last part of your CV should be dedicated to your miscellaneous skills, projects and accomplishments in order to draw attention to your individuality and make your CV truly memorable. Here you can feature your language skills, your interests and hobbies, and generally outline what makes you an employee or co-worker that others would like to have.
So that's it! A brief guide to writing a killer résumé! But if you're still unsure about the specifics don't hesitate to visit my profile and lay back while I'm helping you out!
