A Winning CV: Personal Details

Just imagine meeting an employer for the first time! What first impression do you create? But before you meet him, he has met you through your CV. In the CV, the first meeting is at the personal details section. An employer can easily tell what kind of person you are through the personal details section of your CV. So then, what information should you include there and how much information? It may seem an obvious thing to say, but the ‘Personal Details' section of your CV is your first opportunity to introduce yourself to a potential employer.

This is a section you should also trade cautiously like many other sections because any simple mistake can cost you a job. Give information like a mini-skirt, brief enough to portray value and long enough to cover everything. Do NOT give yourself away in this section by giving too much unnecessary information. By the fact that it is called personal information does not mean you give your secrets away. Today we want to share guidelines and step by step handling of this section.

A Winning CV – The Work Experience Section (Exclusive)

This is the section that easily fails most job applicants in their CV review stage. With or without experience, this article will help you. These days, most job adverts require some slight work experience (Please refer to our article on years of experience). Have you ever been told that even an internship or anything close to it is still work experience? Someone with a real corporate experience can fail in convincing the panel with his format in this area while an internship candidate can. This only depends on how you have developed the section on your CV that describes your work experience.

This article is for people looking to create an awesome work experience section on their CV. Doing so is vital to job success because the work experience section describes your experiences and achievements. Failed to convince employers in this section? Then chances are you're not going to hear from them. Fortunately once you know the secrets creating a fantastic work experience section is simple. Read on then and discover the steps you can use to convince employers.
