CV is a very important part of an individual’s life as it reflects his or her abilities and knowledge in clear and precise terms, such that it can procure employment with different companies. Under such circumstances, it becomes very important to ensure that your CV is a true reflection of your education and capabilities and further that it is written in a professional manner so that it attracts future employers.
It is essential that your CV is correctly structured and follows certain principles of drafting. It is important to note that if you want your prospective employer to take note of your CV, then you should organise your thoughts before actually drafting it. Once your thoughts are in order, you can initially make a note of the important points that you wish to reflect in your CV. It is essential to point out at this instant that your CV should be tailor made to suit the job you are applying for and hence it is important that you highlight only those points that are relevant to the job in question.
Once the high points are identified, it is essential to put them across in precise language and in a sequence, either chronological or functional, depending on what suits your experience and the job best. All CVs should ideally begin with objective statement that should contain the reason for applying for the job in question. Contact details, educational qualifications and actual experience should follow in sequence. Lastly, it is essential to note that all CVs should contain a skills and achievements segment, over and above your experience, so that you can state your capabilities clearly.
