Looking for a job? Then you're into doing a CV. Like it or not - and most people don't! - your search for employment starts with your CV.
Problem? Nobody likes putting one together. But you pretty much have to. So stop moaning and get on with it!
Its your personal sales &
marketing tool. Stop thinking of it as a CV!
Initially it is the most powerful
weapon that you have. If written correctly it can get across a sufficient number
of aspects about you which can help persuade the reader to make a positive
initial assessment of you. Remember, your CV won't get you the job.
You get you the job - at interview.
It is the most influential point
of contact with you - at least initially.
Unless you have some additional way-in
to a companies interview process, then it is most likely going to be left to your
CV to get you in.
To the reader and evaluator your
CV is . In the vast majority of cases
they have nothing else to go on.
And quite simply... You won't get
on if you don't stand out!
