By On Nov 23, 2018 Resume Template
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.
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.
Don’t mention anything personal that is not related to the job. Age, date of birth, marital status, and social insurance number shouldn’t be mentioned at all. The use of photos is not recommended either unless your personal appearance is a key to this particular job. For example: TV host, movie actor. Your career objective statement should be short, clear and to the point. It is an objective relevant to your current resume not to your personal plans for the next five years. Don’t forget to mention the specific position you are interested in, and a professional summary, proving that you are qualified for this job.
