    CV = Curriculum Vitae (Means Course of Life)
    It contains... EVERYTHING about your life!

    Your Resume should highlight your
    BEST accomplishments
    Your Resume should only contain information “relevant” to the job you are applying for
  • 7. What NOT to do on a Resume!
    Elaborate designs and colours
  • 8. No More Objectives!
    Elaborate designs and colours
    “I wish to obtain a position as a _____ to maximize my _______ skills”
  • 9. Don’t Summarize your Skills
    Elaborate designs and colours
    “I wish to obtain a position as a _____ to maximize my _______ skills”
    Not as effective as writing your skills into your descriptions of various experiences
  • 10. Example
    Instead of Listing
    Relevant Skills:
    Great attention to detail
    Exceptional leadership skills
    Ability to work well under pressure
    Try...
    Barista Starbucks
    - Efficiently processed customized orders during morning rush
    - Exceeded monthly sales target in March
  • 11. Don’t waste space!
    Elaborate designs and colours
    “I wish to obtain a position as a _____ to maximize my _______ skills”
    Not as effective as writing your skills into your descriptions of various experiences
    Stating “References available upon request” is useless... They assume you will do so regardless
  • 12. Don’t make it too long!
    Elaborate designs and colours
    “I wish to obtain a position as a _____ to maximize my _______ skills”
    Not as effective as writing your skills into your descriptions of various experiences
