The CV You Need Right Now!
Pro advice on how to make an excellent impression from the start...
With the job market so competitive, making sure your CV leaves a positive impression on a prospective employer can be the most crucial part of the job hunting process. They need to know how awesome you are, without having to go through pages and pages of every achievement since the 6th grade. “A short, crisp CV can be your ticket to recruitment,” explains Shefalee Vasudev, Associate Editor, The Indian Express. “A well put-together resume is one that makes me say ‘I want to meet you now’”. Here, real bosses reveal what makes them say ‘You’re hired’... Sumanto Chattopadhyay, Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather “Whether you go in for a traditional resume or a creative one, be sure that it is letter-perfect. Spelling and grammar mistakes are a complete turn-off and an early warning sign of sloppy work. I once received a series of Peanuts comic strips with a twist—this creative candidate wove herself into the comic, and the characters spoke about why this she would be a great hire. She got the job.” Pragati Nayal, Senior Client Services Executive, Omerta Consulting “Having read hundreds of CVS over the years, I have noticed people highlight their salaries as much as their skills and qualities. That’s the first thing we have an alert for—job hoppers. A lot of times, people think they’re writing a resume, but cannot put the information across successfully. Use simple language and be precise. Your objectives and key skills should be at the head of your resume.”
