What To Write in A CV?

Are you also confused as to what to write in a resume and what to avoid? Do you also have a habit of including everything that occurs to you? If yes, then put a full stop to doing this right away, and consider CV Designer’s best resume writing services that ensure the clients get the most awaited interview call to enhance their career. 

Below are the things that should be included on a resume and what should be avoided on a resume, let’s learn about them in detail 

What exactly has to be avoided:

Font and size: Always take care of the font and size of the text. Imagine yourself as a recruiter, screening hundreds of CVs and Resumes in a day. Your CV should have consistent fonts and sizes used across the document, so as to avoid distraction and loss of interest.  

Grammar and spelling: The main factor for rejection at the secondary screening level. While recruiters look for keywords, hiring managers look for language too. Why? Because these two parameters hold the capability to change the entire meaning of the sentence, showcase you as someone with poor written communication skills. And in today’s world, communication is everything. Be it written or verbal. 

Formatting: Misaligned, untidy, formats are a huge NO! Do not ever-present your CV which has not been aligned and holds multiple formatting styles to it. It's a source of distraction. 

Objective Line: Please! How does your objective in life make a difference to an employer? And, most objectives start with “I would like to be a part of a reputed organization…… and end with where I can utilize my skills”. This is redundant, makes no sense, and is a criminal waste of space. Some take up 3 lines which can be used to highlight keywords instead! 

what exactly has to be added in a resume

What exactly has to be added:

Summary: Ensure you capture crisp, bold, and clear statement of your experience, your skills, and definitely the catchiest achievement, that may interest a hiring manager. 

Ex: If you are applying for a National Sales Head role, you should have number values, team size being handled and the regions under your leadership. Specify if you are into B2B or B2C. 

Role Accountabilities: Have a brief summation. Not an entire job description. Focus on initiatives and achievements instead. This by itself would explain what you were meant to do. 

Achievements: Not Awards! What you have significantly done differently adding value to the role you were designated for! These frame your achievements section. 

Awards and Recognition: Ensure you call your recognitions and achievements out separately on your resume. However, you should ensure your most recent is highlighted. Do not miss adding company names and periods. 

Education and Certification: Adding just the qualification would not suffice. You need to add the year of passing, institution, and university name. Here again, remember to mark your most recent qualification on top. If you have passed out of a premium educational institution, like IIM, Bits, or the prominent international ones, move your education segment the page 1. 

Technical Skills: Please, split them into Tools, Languages, Environments, and other relevant headings. Do not club them all together. 

CSR: If you are someone who has been a part of CSR activities, there is no harm in pointing it out. It should definitely be mentioned if your role demands it. It would add more value.
