How to Write a Good Resume(CV)

Your ِCV is a single most important document when it comes to searching for a new job it doesn’t matter how long it is taken to write it. The person reading it will take About five seconds to form an opinion and then decide whether you’re the one or just like everyone.

As well as driving attention to your potential, your CV has to impress the employer too; you have to show that you own the necessary skills and Competencies to do the job. There is a lot to ask when we think about writing a Resume but the answer is those very few simple rules.


To make sure that you produce a well presented Accurate and concise CV that will give you every opportunity to stick your Interview you have to stick to the first rule “write your CV yourself», it needs to represent you and the language you use you’ll be expected to discuss Your CV in the interview and the recruits will definitely know when your CV is not your own.

The best way to layout a CV is to start with your name and contact details, your database are not necessary neither your nationality nor marital status the big question now is “what comes next??” This is a critical part of the CV; some people think that over filling up a person’s profile is the best way to make that all-important
Positive impression sometimes it is but not 10 times out of ten, personal profiles have the opposite effect
And so we think it is best avoided.

The most dynamic part of the CV is a section that chart your “Key achievements” but first make sure you’re writing but facts don’t  just tell the recruits you did this and that but when ware and even how. Once you captured your reader’s interests they will want to know where you worked so your “employment history “comes next

Include job type, dates and put the most recent first Also include a description of your duties and your responsibilities include only Precise details These will make your skills tangible Then comes your education and qualifications Again the most recent first; Start with your most relevant professional qualification for the job

Think of the full title for your degree and a summary of subjects in grades; the interests and hobbies section should not be underestimated keep away from useless information like “socializing with friends, watching TV”

Share hobbies that can demonstrate arranged scales relevant to the job or Transferable to the place your setting

And if possible pick hobbies that are out of the ordinary so you can stand out from the crowd.
The final section CV refers to your references And this leads as onto our second rule “Keep it brief” A good CV shouldn’t be any longer than 3 pages it should be informative but concise, Omit any fancy and complicated sentences, A good CV will highlight all your skills that are relevant to the job Dispense with those that are irrelevance and don’t over describe anyhow don’t need to mention references yet (available on request)

The third rule is “Your CV needs to be truthful and accurate” if you were fired for a certain reason state it clearly but not forget saying that you solved the problem you used to have EX (, there is no harm telling the reason you were fired for EX: “implemented absence policy” tell them that you reduced your sickness absence levels from eleven to two point five percent over one year period also there’s) also nothing is wrong With giving yourself credit where credit is to. But never exaggerate.

The fourth rule “Get the language right «We need to think about the language we use Keep your CV at the 3ed person where possible by avoiding beginning sentences repeatedly with “I, being aware of using the relevance tense and also appropriate words to describe your skills confidently;

“The recruitment unemployment confederation” says that about half of all CVs received by “recruitment consultants” contain spelling or grammatical errors, Spell checking is one way to look for errors but there are many words that slipped through the net, thenThe best way to spell checking is to get a friend our colleague to read it through.

The fifth rule is “Add the finishing touches”; finally we need to pay attention to the presentation

Your CV should be easy to read and not cramped, To achieve this the it should be uniform throughout although headings Can be emphasized with size changes Both lecturing, underlining and italics Fonts such as Times New Roman or Arial with point 12 give a CV a professional air For more interesting and fun consider GeorgiaOr classier choose Geneva or verdana……….

CV is never fully-done it should always be kept up-to-date and always tighten to every individual opportunity you apply for…..

By these five simple rules of:

1-Write your CV yourself
2-Keeping it brief
3-Being truthful and accurate
4-Get right language right
5-Applying the finishing touches

You’ll give yourself every opportunity to progress to the interview stage and when you get there
