Step to step CV Tutorial for job seekers
CV

You really want to apply for a job in a Fame or shell company, you are been told to send a copy of your CV but your problem is not how to send it rather your problem is how to write a well and attracting CV, Don’t panic folks! After reading my Article you will not like copying someones CV online. The word Curriculum Vitae (CV) means “course of life” in Latin, and that is just what it is. A CV is a concise document which summarizes your past, existing professional skills, proficiency and experiences.

The document or information inside the CV proves that you have the necessary skills to do the job in which you are seeking for. Literally you are using your skills, or talent in a profitable way etc.

Carefully Focus on these steps to create a great CV.

  1. Know the information a CV generally contains. 80% of CV include: your personal information, education qualifications, work experience, skills, and references. Also experienced people tailor your resume to the job you are applying for. Use a modern but professional format. However, there is no set format for a CV, it’s only left for you to know the necessary information to fill
  2. Draft a list of jobs and position you have held. These include your past job and the current one you have held. Also indicate the date(very important) that you started and ended at each particular job.
  3. Consider the kind job you are seeking for. You need to Research about the company. There are many things to have in mind when writing a CV. A good CV is based on the specific job and company you are seeking for. You need to ask yourself or Research: What does the company or fame do?, What is their motive?, What do you think they are looking for in an employee?, What skills does the specific job require?, These should be at the back of your head when writing your CV.
  4. Browse the company’s website for an additional information. Confirm if there is any specified information or material they needed you to attach in your CV. There might be specific directions listed on the application page. Always be conscious of this
  5. Include your hobbies and interests. Unique interests or hobbies can increase your chances of getting the job. Having a unique skill that relates to the job in which others don’t posses will make you stand out. Try to list hobbies that portray you as a team-oriented individual rather than as a solitary, passive person. Most Companies want someone who works well with others and can take charge if need be.

6. list of your relevant skills. These skills often include digital skills (being a guru at Excel? Programming? Webdesign ? And so on),many languages you speak, or one specific things the company is looking for

  • Example of targeted skills: If you are applying to be a writer for a newspaper, list that you are fluent in AP style. If you are applying for a coding job, mention that you have worked with JavaScript

Section 2

  1. Know the format to use in your CV. Play around with different formats to see which looks most professional. Aim for no more than the front and back of a standard sheet of paper.
  2. Write your names, address, telephone number, and email at the top of the CV. It is very necessary to write your name with a bold text than the rest of the text as it is important for your reviewer to know who what he or she is reading about.
    Standard format would be to have your name in the center of the page. Your home address should be listed in a block format on the left side of the paper. Put your telephone number and email below your home address.
  3. Write your personal profile. This is optional, but its good for giving your reviewer a more in-depth look at you as a person. This is where you sell your skills, experiences, and personal qualities. It should be original and well-written. Use positive words such as “adaptable”, “confident”, and “determined”.
  4. List your education and qualifications. There is know parmanent section for this, it can be at the beginning of your CV or you can choose to list it after other sections. The order of sections is up to you. List your education in reverse chronological order. Start with university if you attended. List the name of your university, the dates you went there, your major and minor, and your grade point average or A levels.
    Example: Santa Clara University, English and History 2009-2013 Subjects include: Medieval Literature, Victorian Literature, Criticism of Poetry, and History of Great Britain. Obtained a 75% on my 2nd year exams. (If in the US- Maintained a 3.7 GPA.)
  5. Choose another section for your work experience. Here is the section in which you list all of your work experience. List the name of the company, institution or fame, the location of the company, the years you worked there, and what you did or position. If you have a long list of work experience, only write the ones that relates to the job you are seeking for.
  6. Another section for your skills and achievements. where you list the things you accomplished at your previous jobs, and the skills you have developed through your experiences. Also a section where you list any of your published work, lectures you’ve given, classes you’ve taught, etc.
  7. A section for other information. If there is a noticeable gap in your CV or there is some other information you would like to share, put it in this section. This sort of information can include leaving work to take care of children, join the Peace Corps, etc.
  8. Section for references. They are the people you have worked with in the past such as professors, previous employers, etc. that have seen your work and can credibly support praises that they give you. The company you are applying to may contact these references to find out more about your previous work. You should talk with the person you would like to list a reference before actually listing them–it is best to double check that they still have the same number, are okay with giving you a reference, or that they remember who you are. Write down their full names and contact information (including their phone numbers and emails).

Section 3

  1. Check your spelling and grammar. Poor spelling is the quickest way to get rejected. If your CV is sloppy or riddled with errors, potential employers will be unimpressed. Double (and triple) check that you have spelled the name of the company correctly, as well as any companies you have worked for in the past.
  2. Proofread for any sentences that could be written more concisely. CVs that are concise and well-written tend to do better than long-winded CVs that have repetitive information. Make sure you don’t repeat yourself–it’s better to list many of your traits than the same few traits over and over again.
  3. Proofread your CV. What do you think about the layout and the information written there? Do you come across as a professional?
  4. Ask someone else to read your CV. What do they think could be added or taken out? Would they hire you if they were a company?
  5. Browse the company’s application page. Look to see if there are any other materials they would like you to send in along with your CV. Companies may ask for a cover letter or samples of your work (such as articles you may have written).

Conclusion

Working with this Easy steps, I can assure you 100% of getting the job in which you seek for, even if there’s no vacancy the company can still make an adjustment #lol.. but believe me.
