You need to create distinct sections that are well-defined so that once a recruiter picks up your CV, within 15 to 30 seconds, the content of your CV is easily decipherable. This is what gives your CV the attention needed thereby winning you a call-up for interview. The quick points on CV writing are:
- Professional/Profile/Career Summary
- Personal Detail/Bio-data (optional)
- Professional/Work Experience
- Education and Qualification
- Key/Core Competencies/Skills
- Referees/References (optional)
Now, the arrangement is in relation to the strength of each section. For example, a fresh graduate may allow education and qualification to come before work experience because that’s where his/her strength lies. The inclusion of State of Origin, Home Town, LGA, Religion, etc are now obsolete. In addition, your presentation must be firm and catchy. Make strong use of power-words (word density) to give your CV an undeniable edge over many others in the labour market. If this quick points on CV writing is strictly adhered to, no recruiter will ever treat your CV with disdain again!
