    How can u write CV and complete ur job seeking?

    Post by Mohamed Selim on Tue May 04, 2010 3:03 pm


    Most people do not know that a position advertised on the internet can receive over 300 resumes per advertised position!! That number doesn't even include the hoards of unsolicited resumes received weekly. That's a lot of competition. Getting in the door is today's toughest challenge.

    In addition to very powerful verbiage and eye-catching design, there are a few resume basics that must be followed to generate employer attention. While these are not the only practices that apply, they are general enough to help ensure that you're on the right track.


    Proof your resume carefully for errors and have others proof it too. There should be no typos, misspellings or grammatical mistakes. Take the extra step by printing your resume on quality bond paper to give it substance.


    While objective statements are usually unnecessary (either too vague or very limiting), it’s important that your resume maintain a focus. This can be done via powerful profile/summary statement and by concentrating on the relevant experiences, skills and accomplishments that relate to the industry you wish to pursue.


    While objective statements are usually unnecessary (either too vague or very limiting), it's important that your resume maintain a focus. This can be done via powerful profile/summary statement and by concentrating on the relevant experiences, skills and accomplishments that relate to the industry you wish to pursue.
    Experience: Listing your experience is a given, but take your experience to the next level by adding accomplishments to your daily duties. Example, if one of your responsibilities is "customer service," provide the results of particular customer service activities using action-oriented statements.


    Limit your information to professional relevance only. Do not include personal information (age, marital status, sex) and don't mention why you left your other positions. Employers do not care if you were let go or if the company went out of business. That's interviewing material. And NEVER mention salary information on a resume. Period.
    Education: Provide the name and location of the school and type of degree/major. High school is not necessary, but internships may be helpful if relevant. Don't forget to include any professional development activities such as seminars or specialized training. If you've been in the workforce for 5 years or more, the actual date is not necessary, nor is your GPA…your experience is what matters at this point in your career.

    Page Length:

    No longer is it considered mandatory to have a one-page resume. As long as the information provides VALUE to the reader (not fluff), is relevant to your career goal and you have at least 5 years of experience under your belt, don't worry about length. Naturally, you don't need to write a book if you have a 30-year career, so focus on the most recent 10-12 years or so.
    References: The standard statement of "References Available upon Request"is not necessary. However, if the placement of the comment balances out the resume presentation, feel free to include it. Don't, however, incorporate references on the resume itself or send a reference list with the resume. Employers aren't ready for that at this stage of the game.

    Project List:

    if you have any sort of project list or portfolio of your work, feel free to add it as an attachment. These additional Materials always helps to evaluate your skill level and qualifications.


    Research the company before you go
    Always be sure to research the company you about to interview with. Review their website, this usually give great insight into the firm and where it is going. Being not prepared for an interview will usually show to the employer.

    Find out the dress code and dress appropriately
    Always try to dress as professional as possible. If you have a suit – wear it! Every company has a different "culture" and environment. In order to "fit in," you will need to dress appropriately for their environment. If in doubt as to what you should wear, always dress up rather than down. Never neglect proper hygiene.

    Arrive 10-15 minutes early for the interview
    This allows you time to fill out the in-house application at the employer's office. Also, give yourself some time to park and find the actual office.

    Be kind and professional to all
    Even the front desk receptionist has some power when it comes to an employer choosing new employees. The interview starts right when you walk into the lobby.

    Bring a fresh, crisp copy of your resume with you
    This makes a good impression on the employer if you bring about 2 or 3 fresh copies of your resume with you. This is will make you look well prepared for the interview and it helps just in case you are introduced to other mangers / owners.

    Be confident in your skills
    We wouldn't have sent you if you were not qualified for the position! Be confident in your skills – but never oversell yourself, it will always show in the end.

    When asked questions
    Relate them to job related examples, not personal experiences. Try to relate the questions to the most recent work experience.

    Have questions to ask towards the end of the interview.
    Focus your questions regarding advancement and longevity topics. Let the employer feel that you are in it for the long run – you want a long lasting career at their firm.

    If you want the job, tell them directly at the end of your interview.

    It carries more impact coming directly from you, versus us second hand. Let the employer know that you are interested in the job opportunity there and ask them: "what is the next step?"


    Below is a list of commonly asked questions in an interview. Please take some time to consider how you would answer:
    1. Why are you willing to leave your current employer?
    2. What do you know about this position and company? Why are you interested?
    3. What are your short-term and long-term goals?
    4. How do you feel about your current supervisor?
    5. What are your strengths?
    6. What are your weaknesses?
    7. Who have you learned the most from? What was it? Why was it important?
    8. What information is important to you in making a decision about this job change?
    9. What are you currently looking for in salary? Why?
    10. What would you change here?
    11. What could be improved in your boss?
    12. What do you like about your current boss?
    13. When are you available to start?

    Successful tips for your new job

    * When you arrive at your new job, spend some time with the supervisor to ensure you understand your duties / responsibilities and what is expected of you.
