Simple Ways To Strengthen Your CV


resume-2445060_960_720.jpg

Been handing your CV into lots of places but not getting any replies? Here are a few ways that you may be able to make your résumé stand out and get employers responding.

Cut out the waffle

You may hope that by cramming as much information into your CV you increase your chances of striking a chord with an employer. However, most employers likely don’t have the time or patience to read a massive wall of text or scan through ten pages of previous job experience, especially if they’re getting lots of application on a daily basis. Get the most important details of your CV out there first. Keep your opening summary to three sentences max telling them who you are and why you’re perfect for the job. Cut out any work experience that isn’t relevant, list your best grades and accomplishments and allow references to be available on request.

Learn a new skill

If you don’t feel like you’re qualified enough for the jobs you’re applying to, it could be worth learning a new skill to put on your CV. You needn’t take up a college course – there are plenty of week-long courses on specific skills such as Photoshop or Microsoft Word as listed at sites such as Training Connection. Identify your weakness and solve it by getting the know-how.

Show off your life experience

Work experience and qualifications aren’t everything. You can often emphasise your soft skills such as being a good leader, being creative or being self-motivated by giving examples of life experience. Saving up and travelling around the world shows that you’re independent, goal-oriented and adventurous. Being successful at a sport can show teamwork skills, competitiveness and commitment. Rather than simply listing the hobbies and interests you’ve had, use them to show off your best qualities.  

Make use of hyperlinks

With most people sending CVs via email and through job listing sites, hyperlinks are a trick worth making use of. They can be used to link to a blog you own, to photographs that you’ve taken, to a Youtube channel or video of relevance, to proof of a client you’ve worked with or to a testimonial left by someone. You can even create a digital portfolio using a service such as PortfolioBox and provide a private link. Hyperlinks make your CV more interactive and can allow you to contain be more succinct with information (instead of describing a company you’ve worked with, you can link an employer to them).

Have different CVs tailored to different jobs

Unless you’re applying to a specific type of job, having a one-size-fits-all CV can be limiting. Create different CVs that are more catered to specific types of job. If you’ve been applying to retail positions but have also seen a few event staff vacancies you’d like to apply to, create separate CVs focused to each one. If job listing sites only allow you upload one CV, email companies directly or keep uploading new CVs with each new job you apply to.

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

    Image by Oliver King via Pexels  CBD oil has gained enormous popularity in the recent past for its incredible health benefits. Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future. Here is all you need to know about CBD oil and the potential benefits you could reap by  using it.  What is CBD Oil?  CBD, which stands for cannabinoids, is a compound found in Cannabis. Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Black Friday 2021 pe Notino

      Perioada perfecta pentru cumparaturi a venit mai repede luna aceasta,  notino black friday a inceput pe data de 8 Noiembrie si va tine pana in data de 28. Este ocazia perfecta mult asteptata de a cumpara seturi cadou pentru Craciun , parfumul special pe care si-l doreste iubita/sora/mama ta sau pur si simplu atentii pentru cei dragi din viata ta. Eu am facut deja prima comanda pe Notino deoarece am prins reducere de 40% la produsele Dove, produse pe care le folosesc si eu si stiu ca am si prietene care folosesc. Nu le-am luat pentru mine, le-am luat pentru a le face cadou, iubesc sa daruiesc cadouri la fel de mult pe cat iubesc sa le primesc. Tot acum am luat si setul pentru maini de la Baylis & Harding, imi place foarte mult ambalajul, arata luxurios si cred eu ca va fi un cadou dragut. Luna aceasta am 3 aniversari asa ca o sa mai fac cateva comenzi, deja am urmarit reducerile si sunt consistente. Daca imi citesti blogul, stii deja cat imi plac parfumurile si nu cred ca est
