2011: Expert CV Tip of the Week 3

The How to Make a CV Tip of the Week 3 is: CV profile picture

Write the CV from the perspective of the intended reader

It’s extremely important to write your resume with the readers requirements in mind. Chances are that the reader will be either the decision maker on the person that is hired or that they are heavily influential on the hiring of the individual. Regardless of this, if they are reading your curriculum vitae they are probably making decision on at least who to interview which is why you should think about what they are wanting to see from their reading, and then apply that to your CV profile.

When working as a recruitment consultant, in nearly every circumstance where I read a CV with the purpose of forwarding people for interview, I advised the person to reconsider the CV that was submitted, which mean’t them going away and spending just 20 minutes marrying up the requirement that they have experience in, that are relevant to the position I was helping them achieve interview for, and detailing these in a prevalent way. It has to be obvious from the start that you are suitable to interview.

Think about what the reader wants to see -> Write it with them in mind
