It is frustrating to see how people do not realise the importance of their CV. Working with people in career transition, one of the things that I realised is how not updated their CV is. I have met one person who has 6 pages of jargon filled description of what he has done for the past 26 years. While I do not encourage one to cut the length of one’s CV for the sake of doing so, what needed to be done is the need of being succinct. Whether you like it or not, to even get your CV noticed, it is not the scented colourful paper you used or that CV filled with underlines, indentations and various fonts. The chances that your CV going straight to the bin is very high if you do not ensure that your CV shows others who you really are : your achievements, your strengths! talk to recruiters and ask for their advice on how you need to revamp your CV to fir the job your are targetting.
Unfortunately, the higher one attained in the corporate ladder, the likelihood that he or she has already lost touch with the demands and requirements of modern CV. If you are one of those that struggles with your CV. Feel free to contact me!
