The Do's and Don'ts of CV Writing

The Do's and Don'ts of CV Writing



You could be the most suitable & excellent candidate for the job.


But you don't know how to present yourself & fail to get the job because of the CV??


What if you have a well-written & professional looking CV?


Here are some Do's and Don'ts:


- Don't be TOO LONG, think about those who read a lot of CV, like me 800/months


- Don't be too generic, vague, and only mentioned your job duties, no one read this...


- Irrelevant Personal Data, e.g. your family member, height, weight, signature. Don't laugh...


- How many times I've mentioned: NO tables please!


- Don't use lots of jargon, buzzwords, abbreviations.


- Don't include old information, 30 years ago? Not really up to date now.


- Don't lie or exaggerate for your job title or job duties. And don't lie about your employment period.


- Do have a Personal Summary (3 to 5 sentences), and have Key Achievements with measurable results


- Use bullet points for CV


- Consistent in your font size, font type, and formatting.


- Do in Chronological order and I can always list more Tips for you!!
