15 May 2014 - Composing a CV can quickly become a frustrating task, especially if you are an individual with extensive experience or an individual with little or no experience. Those which have extensive experience often find that organising information produces pages upon pages results while those with little experience will have difficulty in filling one page. The question that naturally arises is how many pages should your CV be in order to present a professional presence?
10 May 2014 - CVs present your experience as well as your professionalism to potential employers. Most of the material is presented in a detailed format which highlights the skill sets, education, achievements, and such which you have obtained. The one section that seems to be left deliberately vague is the reference section. Why is this so? Would it not be more presentable to have verifiable information on the page for the potential employer? The answer is a definitive no.
30 April 2014 - Observing the working world, you will quickly find that there are those which seem to think that the responsibilities of his or her job are more of a suggestion than a requirement. Therefore, when these individuals actually perform the duties associated with the job to which he or she works, that person sees the professionalism as an achievement worthy of notice. As the onlooker, you see the individual and wonder why such attention is being given to a task which was part of the job description to begin with.
05 May 2014 - Compositing a CV can be a frustrating task for any individual especially for those which are seasoned professionals. Individuals with an excess of 20 years of experience or those persons which have worked several different aspects of their career choice may find that there is quite a bit of material to choose from in terms of experience. Where it is very tempting to offer all of this experience in the CV, the result may not be beneficial. Carefully analysing your experience can highlight your key assets and increase your likelihood for employment.
29 April 2014 - Have you ever heard the expression “Put your best foot forward”? When it comes to potential employment, such a practice could not be observed enough. Unemployment in the UK was reported by the Office of National Statistics to be at 2.24 million. With so many individuals out of work you need to make an impressive persuasion to any potential employer as to why he or she should take the time to read your CV.
