A CV (Curriculum Vitae) is a document that gives
employers a clue of a job seeker and his/her
capabilities.There are simple mistakes people make
when it comes to CV writing.Most people will avoid to
fill in/fail to talk much about certain areas by doubting
their capabilities.Below I have listed a few areas to
consider when writing your Curriculum Vitae and give it
an extra Boost!!!
What people should understand is that this three are
very important but only when asked to talk about
them.It is important not to include this three in your CV
if not asked to do so.
Most people will tend to think that you can only fill this
space if you’ve worked in a big institution or company
for a period of time,mainly for the job you are applying
for.Don’t let that scare you,this can be
internship,voluntary roles or previous jobs.You should
always add the positions,roles and key
achievements.This will help the employer build trust and
confidence in you.
This is not compulsory but rather not skip it.In this
section you may write any personal skills or abilities.
(a) Being a school head boy/girl (School President) or a
class prefect,shows a skill of leadership.
(b) Being a team captain,cheer leader or a member of a debating
club shows a skill of leadership. This will give employers
a clear picture of who they are going to work with.
•TRAINING AND WORKSHOP
This can’t be avoided,people confuse this to
EDUCATION but it’s slightly different.In this section you
a required to highlight coachings you received out of
school or in school but taught by an organization or a
group of volunteers.
(a) Attended a training on First Aid,organized by Red
Cross on 2nd.Dec.2015
(b) Attended a training on HIV/AIDS in 4th.Jan.2014
Organised by Unisef.
