You cannot just go about writing your CV and expect miracles to happen.
There are practical steps you must employ to create a CV that can land you an interview.
You have to strategize and plan before hand, right before writing your CV.
Practical steps to understanding the parts and components of your CV/RESUME
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. There are two important things to note even before writing your CV.
KNOW WHAT THE EMPLOYER IS LOOKING FOR
You cannot just create a CV and expect it to move employers. You have to write with the focus on what the employer really needs.
Remember that the employer is not just looking for anyone but those with the necessary knowledge, skills, ambition and competence.
Knowing what the employer really wants and needs will help you to construct your CV/Resume to match their every need.
This is to find out what abilities, talents, skills and experiences you possess to match the recruiters mental picture to the ideal employee.
PARTS OR SECTIONS OF A CV/RESUME
CV/Resume comes in two sections or parts, and both helps to strike your points in different ways, but at the end, they all work together.
ASSERTION SECTION OF THE CV/RESUME
This section carries more force of attraction, since this is the part the employer sees first. This is where you pull in the recruiters’ interest to respond positively to your CV/Resume.
This section emphasizes on what you can do, how you can add value to an organization; it showcases your abilities, qualities and achievements.
It should not just interest the employer but excite them enough to shortlist you for the next stage in the selection process.
COMPONENTS OF ASSERTION SECTION OF THE CV/RESUME
- Career objective or personal profile.
- Qualities and skills.
- Achievement and competencies.
EVIDENCE SECTION OF THE CV/RESUME
This section of the CV gives support and confirms the information given and listed in the assertion section of the CV.
It actually shows your pedigree and quality; both educationally and in experience.
COMPONENTS OF THE EVIDENCE SECTION OF THE CV/RESUME
- Award and honors.
- Professional qualifications.
- Hobbies and interests.
