  2. 2. Are you looking for a new job? Are you just out of school or college and looking for you first job or are you looking for a better job or promotion? Remember the most important part of your job search is your CV. The CV (Curriculum Vitae) or resume will be the first thing a potential employer will have to look at concerning your employment, skills and aspirations. Employers and recruiters receive hundreds of CV applications and many are thrown in the bin for various reasons, therefore, in order to write an effective CV that will not be thrown out you need to learn CV writing basics.

  3. 3. In order to get to that all-important interview, your CV must get the attention it deserves. You will probably be one among many job applicants and your CV must be outstanding if you wish to have a chance to shine before and during your interview. Of course, your CV will not be the only factor that will get you the job, but if your CV is dismissed before you can get the chance to talk about yourself, you will never know if you could have obtained the job.

  4. 4. Your Curriculum Vitae is a self-marketing tool and is designed in order for you to make it to the next step in the employment process. No matter what job you are applying for, and there will be many others applying for the same job. In today's job market, many people are in the same situation with job layoffs, bankruptcies, downsizing and the closure of companies, the competition can be fierce. This is the main reason; your CV has to make the best first impression. When your CV reaches the next level of the recruitment process, there was something written in it that made the employer or recruiter believe you were a good candidate for the job position. All you have to do is expand on your skills, and communicate your worth at the interview and you will achieve success. CV Writing Advice
