CV – it is not just a record of what you have done at work

It is frustrating to see how people do not realise the importance of their CV. Working with people in career transition, one of the things that I realised is how not updated their CV is. I have met one person with six pages of jargon-filled description of what he has done for the past 26 years.
While I do not encourage one to cut the length of one’s CV for the sake of doing so, what needs to be done is the need to be succinct. Whether you like it or not, to even get your CV noticed, it is not the scented, colourful paper you used or that CV filled with underlines, indentations and various fonts. The chances of your CV going straight to the bin are very high if you do not ensure that your CV shows others who you are: your achievements and strengths! Talk to recruiters and ask for their advice on revamping your CV to fit the job you are targeting.
Unfortunately, the higher one attained on the corporate ladder, the likelihood that they have already lost touch with the demands and requirements of a modern CV. If you are one of those who struggles with your CV. Feel free to contact me!
