The first filter when choosing a person to be called to an interview is the correct presentation of the background.
When faced with the search for a job, a series of steps must be followed, which must be done carefully so as not to incur some “small” error that eventually becomes the great cause why not is called to some interview. A common mistake people make is to present their poorly worded curriculum vitae (CV), unclear, with spelling mistakes or without communicating anything of the person in personal and professional terms, which speaks in a negative way of the applicant, since the CV is the letter of introduction to a company.
To get into the subject, we realize that the vast majority use the word curriculum vitae but not everyone knows what this document really means. A CV is a short document that discloses the personal data, skills and work experience of the applicant to the job.
Due to a large number of CVs that come in search of the job, it is advisable to capture the attention and interest of the employer to enable a subsequent interview, which is a challenge.
The first thing you need in a resume is to have good writing, be clear, organized, concise and dynamic. It is always better to read a well-written sentence than four that describe the same thing. An extensive CV containing multiple sheets is very likely to be immediately rejected. So being concise is one of the big clues.
It must be taken into account who will read it and from that point a special design can be created according to the position and the formality or informality of the position.
The appearance is of equal importance since this document is the only thing an employer knows about the person; is what represents the applicant. Every detail should be taken care of if it is desired to find a job quickly. Therefore, an excellent resume will guarantee the call to interview.
- The resume must be clear, legible and structured.
- It must contain four fundamental pillars: personal data, important aspects of education, work experience, and work projections.
- It is not advisable to use many technical terms, as they make it difficult to read it.
- Even if you have a vast experience, you should try to have the CV contained in a page.
- CV is not a biography, only the most significant and important experiences should be written.
- Try to be creative in the presentation pointing to the fair level of formality or informality of the company to which you are applying.
