Ad description

CV Curriculum Vitae in English or Resume in USA English is the brief description of an applicant for a job or any post for appointment, and it contributes a lot to whether you get invited for an aptitude test or job interview.1 Do not label or give your CV title, like CV or Resume. The Human Resource department or recruiting agencies sort this file in one big file, there is no point reminding them what it is all over again.2 Title your CV with your full name, starting with your surname, first name and middle name, in capital and bold letter.3 Under this title write your contact address, in small letter, with your current phone number and email address.4 Do not use small fonts; rather use big fonts, such that the reader will not need an eye glass to see what you have put down.5 Break your CV down into categories or segments, each with bold heading, such as Bio Data, Academic History, work experience, Professional body, hobbies, and Reference.6 Do not write long essay as CV, some applicants will have a long CV about five pages, keep your CV to the minimum of two, maximum of three pages.7 Make your CV distinct, in a case where you are ask to submit a hard copy, do not go with ordinary A4 white paper, it will only make your CV one in numerous thousands, instead use concord paper.8 If you are applying for many jobs at the same time in different location, use different address, like if you are applying for a job in Lagos and Abuja for instance; use a contact address in both city if you can’t get one, use  your uncle’s or relatives.9 Use powerful people in your reference. If you know somebody that is influential, and can acknowledge knowing you, use them as reference, just one, and the other can be people that knows you very well, the first because such big name can land you the job, and the later in case you are not reachable, and the company has to contact you through somebody. Send your career related articles to:
