Recommendations to develop a good CV: 1. with regard to the content:-it is important to adapt the curriculum to the offered job. A CV must be focused to the post that is aspirated, so it is not recommended to create a ‘multi-purpose’ CV intending to pick up all our data and serve us for any position offered. In any case, we can create a CV Basic or general and then modify it, by selecting or highlighting especially those aspects which indicate that you gather the requirements of the post. -Must be updated (for specific offers) and dated (especially those who are delivered in companies by a presentation mode), because the situation and the candidate data may change over time. -Be positive and reflect the differences, characteristics that make you particularly suited for the post. -Be honest, don’t lie in terms of your qualities. Indicate only the titles of highest level, is sobreentienden the lower.
-Avoid superfluous and unnecessary details (weight, height) – does not include financial claims (will be covered in) the interview). -Supplement the absence of experience with references to workshops related to the work requested. -Submit to a critical reading by third parties before sending it. 2. As regards drafting and expression:-the brevity and conciseness are the most important traits of all resume. -Outlining the language, do not use more words than necessary.
Example. For example: do not write: ‘my role as Chief of maintenance is’. WRITES: Maintenance Chief. Features:. The words my function and like they do not contribute anything. -Do not use redundant, superfluous or useless, phrases that can be dispensed with without altering the content. For example: do not write: ‘When I arrived there was a preventive maintenance plan and I should take care of their development and implementation’. WRITES: Development and implementation of the plan of preventive maintenance. 17 words against 8 to express the same thing. -Avoid phrases. I want to inform you that. – Express an idea in each sentence. -Use words, phrases and short paragraphs. 3. With regard to presentation:-the presentation of a clean, attractive and well structured curriculum is essential to give a professional image. Beware the image (paper, characters, etc.) and everything must be very clear and orderly. -Do not exceed one or two pages. -Care for the style and avoid spelling mistakes. Review it several times. -Pay particular attention to the structure, with each data perfectly located in the corresponding section to facilitate their interpretation by the employer. -The attached photograph (not required unless you demand it) must be recent and size meat. Avoid photocopies (even in color). -Use good quality (consistent DinA4) and white paper. -Take care of the design. Respect the margins (must be large), indents and spaces. -Prevent stains and erasures. -Write to machine or computer (unless they expressly requested manuscript). -Do not make photocopies (if necessary, that they are of quality), print as many copies as you need. -Do not sign the curriculum if delivered together with a letter of introduction.
