    Wakuu someni hii inaweza ikasaidia.........

    Suberbowl
    advertisers paid $3 million for a 30-second spot in the last superbowl. Advertisers are willing to pay this price to gain consumers of their goods or services. To ensure they are getting a return on this huge investment they need to make sure that their commercial is memorable for these 100 million plus individuals viewing these advertisements.
    Just like these advertisers you need to create a Universal Profile/resume that is memorable to the Recruiter.
    Would your Universal Profile/resume standout from the crowd? Would your Universal Profile/resume jump out at the recruiter in a few seconds and grab their attention so they continue to read more?

    Try this test. If it were a Friday, on a holiday weekend, right before work ended and you read your Universal Profile/resume would you be compelled to finish reading it or would you toss it over into the reject pile?
    What can you do to get the attention of the Recruiter or Hiring Manager?
    Here are some quick tips:

    • Summary - Begin with a well-written, memorable summary. In the summary include statements about your skills, strengths and experience in 3-5 concise sentences.
    • Accomplishments - Back up your summary with quantifiable accomplishment. The accomplishments should be written in a way to demonstrate how you made a difference in your present and past roles.
    • Terminology - Use current industry terminology to prove you are knowledgeable in your domain.
    you only have a few minutes of the Recruiter/Hiring Manager's time. Grab the reader's attention by crafting a great summary and a great account of the top 3 accomplishments at each company. It needs to make them want to read the rest of the Universal Profile/resume, even on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
    Does your Universal Profile/resume pass that test?

    CV yako inapaswa iwe na vitu vifuatavyo, kumbuka copy and paste unaweza kujikuta unaweka skills na experiences which are not required in the job for which you are applying.

    applying for.

    5. Interests
    Relate your interest to the job you're applying for just as you do for your education and work experience.

    6. References
    Hii inaeleweka vizuri.

    7.Key Words/ Positive action words
    Avoid negative comments such as: I feel I can and I think i can, use positive words such as: Ability, achieved, analyzed, administered, conceived, determined, enthusiasm, enhanced, formed, guided, guaranteed, implemented, instigated, introduced, initiative, judgement, lasting, launched maintained, managed, managed, planned, organised, performed, progress and many more

Use correct spaying to make the CV easy to read and easy for the recruiter to scan. Check online for sample CV and see they layout and compare it to yours. Make sure you don't go over two pages.

    2 – Keywords

    3 - Tailor
    for some jobs (if its a different market) you may need to tailor your CV to match they criteria. It would be no use you telling them you are good with face-to-face customer service skill, if the job is for a call centre. Write about skills that will benefit them. This may seem like a huge task but to get the job, it needs to be done.

    4 – Achievement
    One the most forget part of a CV. Make sure to mention your biggest achievement in each job. This should be different from your duties. Impress them with impressive facts on profit and performance.

    5 – Reference
    Make sure to include two people you can get reference from. Keep in mind that recruiters will call them up so make sure its people that like you.

    6 – Additional skills
    Tell recruiters about others skill you may have. Can you drive? Are you captain of a football team? Do you have NQV certificate in customer service? Simple things like that can improve you CV in the recruiters eyes.

    7 – Job centre
    The job centre offer a free CV writing service for people who may be on Job Seeker Allowance. Show them your CV and they will tell you how to improve it. Its a free service so take advantage it.

    How to do CV # 8 – Purchase a CV
    If all else fails then you can purchase a CV. Professional CV writers charge between £20 - £50. This may seem a lot of money but compare to getting a job that will pay you more than £800 a months. Its a small price to pay.
