March 5, 2017

When is comes to CV Writing in Dubai, UAE or any other country, many people have limited or no information or knowledge about how to write their CV / Resume. In this article we will remove the curtain from few myths that many people believe in. 

 

 

 

1. I will grab a job with a stunning CV

 

Fact: A good CV will get you enrolled for an interview. Once, you are in front of prospective employer, you have to sell yourself better than your CV.

 

2. Hard copy is enough

 

Fact: A lot of people think it is OK if I have a hard copy of my CV with me. Nowadays, many recruiters and employers prefer hiring people through Social Media Platform, LinkedIn is the core source through which job seekers are getting good placements these days.

 

3. Keep my resume generic

 

Fact: Many people have an assumption they will get a job if they keep their resume generic, which reduces the chances of your CV being shortlisted for a specific position. If you don’t keep your experience up to the point and relevant to your actual job description, your chances of getting shortlisted are cut down.

 

4. Resume should cover your complete job history

 

Fact: If you have more than 20 or 30 years of work experience in different organizations, it is not required to put down your entire work history in your CV, as most of the employers will be interested in what you are doing in your current role. Your past experience can be kept in CV if it is vital and can add value to your current job search.

 

5.Exaggerate or overstate your responsibilities

 

Fact: Your CV is the depiction of what you are and what you are capable of.  Most employers appreciate integrity and expect you to state your experience truthfully. Falsifying information is a strict no-no. Try to be clear on your roles and responsibilities in your current and past jobs to avoid any embarrassing situations during interviews.
