Applying for a new job is now necessary. You just received your diploma and are searching for your first job. You’re prepared for a job advancement and are getting your resume and cover letter ready to highlight your experience. You’ve lost your job and are taking advantage of the situation to look for a new one. There are several reasons you might need to update your resume and cover letter.
The first things that potential employers will notice about you are your CV and cover letter. Make sure it’s not the last by following this succinct three-part advice on how to construct a CV and cover letter.
How to Structure your Cv
It’s advisable to start with your CV because it will enable you to compile all of your experience and serve as the foundation for your cover letter later.
But how do you format a resume? It’s that the blank page intimidates you, or that you already have a CV outlining your background and experience but it needs updating. In either case, building a structure is the ideal place to begin. In this video, StandOut CV CEO Andrew Fennell explains how to organize and structure a resume to land more interviews.
How to ADD Details About You
It might be challenging to construct a strong CV, but in general, your resume should demonstrate that your professional history and expertise are relevant to the position you are looking for. If you are applying for your first job and lack any prior work experience, this video will provide you with some excellent tips on how to write a CV without experience.
Common CV Mistakes
Creating a fresh CV might be intimidating, but the secret to producing a great CV may lie in approaching it with an open and critical mind. Examine your resume with fresh eyes and consider whether you would hire the person on it if it landed on your desk. Checking to see if you’ve made any of these typical CV errors and correcting them is a part of the process of critically analyzing your resume.
How to Write a Good Cover Letter
Whatever you call it—personal profile, supporting statement, or CV statement—your cover letter is just as crucial as your resume. Some could argue that it is more significant because it is what the recruiter will see first and may influence whether or not they read the rest of your CV. And it would be a shame if they didn’t because you obviously meet the requirements for the position (you made it through the ATS, after all). It is worthwhile to take the time to ensure that your cover letter accurately represents you, including both your personality and your skills. You want the recruiter to keep your name in mind.
