CV Writing - Madhu Sudhan Rao. M A CV or Curriculum Vitae is: Your Life History Your Job History Your Achievements Your Skills A CV or curriculum vitae is a marketing tool. With your CV you will be able to promote yourself. Imagine the CV as being a brochure that will list the benefits of a particular service. The service being your time and skills! When writing a CV looks at it from your employers’ point of view. Would you stand out against the competition (the other candidates) and would the manager want to talk to you for a possible job ? You have to ask yourself these questions when writing your CV or curriculum vitae. Networking and interviewing are essential for your job hunt and your CV is just the first step in the job search. However, a CV will be your first contact with potential employers and will open the door. If you are invited for an interview , you would then be in a position to explain and expand on what is in your CV. A CV is an essential tool in your job search .

CV Skills Summary The Skills Summary section of your CV includes your main skills . You should only include keywords in his section, do not go into lengthy descriptions of your skills. The skill summary is also called personal profile. CV Objective The CV Objective, sometimes also referred to as CV Personal Profile states “What is the next step in my career?" This should be a short, concise statement that informs the employer what kind of position you are looking for. The type of position, the role (managerial, supervisor, contractor) should be included as well. If you are job hunting it is a good idea to have several CV's with different profiles or objectives . For example, you can have a CV for a sales supervisor and the other for a shop floor manager. Your 'sales supervisor' CV can highlight achievements in this area, and the CV would be tuned to that particular in terms of job descriptions and achievements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
