It can be tempting to over-polish a CV and make our educational qualifications or work history sound a little better than they are. If you are tempted to stretch the truth about your work history - dont. It will come back to haunt you. Most employers conduct reference and background checks, and if your curriculum vitae does not match your actual work history or education, you will most likely get caught at some point, and you will either not get the job or will get fired if you have already been hired.
Prepare the list of your references in advance as almost every employer asks for it, if not up front, then after the first interview or two. The most common practice is putting the phrase “References available upon request” at the bottom of your resume. Your references’ contacts must be good as they will certainly be checked! For references prepare a separate page with the same header you used for the resume.
While preparing a resume, don’t forget to write a cover letter. There are fewer chances that you will be invited to an interview without a well-written cover letter. A cover letter reveals information and skills that often can’t be demonstrated in a resume, such as the ability to communicate in writing, personal writing style, professionalism, attention to details in grammar, punctuation, and spelling, initiative and more. So, remember to devote some time to writing an effective cover letter and meticulously proofread it, along with your resume.
