Description of the above top ten keywords:

Keep it simple: - A CV is no more than a brief outline of your academic and professional history. Use it to draw attention to their strengths, however without going into too much detail. You can always explain to an employer the details, since the invite for an interview.

Their achievements: - Make frequent use of active verbs, ex.: Achieve, accomplish, manage, achieve, and lead. Use tags to emphasize the key successes of his life. Do not write too long sentences to describe topics about work.

Work in reverse order: - Start chronologically with your current job more then the previous ones, not forgetting to include the name of the companies, the dates, the position held and a brief description, and its most important achievements. If you are looking your first job, include any relevant work experience, regardless of whether paid or unpaid.

Build your CV tailored to each company / job: - Employers realize it soon was made a CV type "assembly line" and dispatched to the "box" email. Make them feel that they know the company and who is genuinely interested in joining this organization.

Be honest: - Lying on your CV is a waste of your time and your potential employer. Add in six months time from a previous job may seem like a good idea, but if you are caught, you will lose the chance of getting the job.

Qualifications: - Give enough attention to their achievements in college - but not if you're already in the labor market for more than two years. Some good examples are: member of the student association, participation and organization and special projects or research, debates and conferences. All this type of information shows that you have initiative.

Do not make your CV a will: - Try to keep it to one page and a separate page for references. If you do not have space for all the information, do not reduce the font size. This will only make the employer quickly lose interest in reading your CV.

Errors: - The spelling and grammar errors mean that your CV goes direct to the dustbin. No employer will want to hire someone who does not bother to check their own work. Do not rely on automatic verification, read it carefully several times.

Ask for help: - Two pairs of eyes see more than one. Ask someone to read your CV, you can always find some errors or offer suggestions. After you have read your CV four or five times is hard to concentrate and be objective. It's always a good idea to re-read it the next day, head cooler.

References: - Check your references before using their names. There is nothing worse than using the name of someone who has moved or has something against you. The best references are for you to use your current employer or a teacher his university - someone who knows how you react in a work environment
