- Brief yet detailed: Most people are of the impression that a lengthy CV helps deliver a good impression on an employer. But what they forget is that the employer does not have the time to go through all that you have written precisely. Therefore, it becomes important to select all the information that you want to put in your CV in a succinct manner. Make sure you edit out as much information as you can. An ideal CV should never be more than two pages.
- Say who you are: In order to leave a good impression on the employers, job seekers end up lying on their CV. But what they may not know is that they are committing an offence, which could be quite a serious situation. Therefore, never lie on your CV, communicate the real you, lying is never worth the risk.
- Easy to read and well formatted: The CV's font should never be too small or big. It should always be one that can be easily read. Furthermore, a well formatted CV always leaves a good impression on the employer. A Universal CV format is recommended, as this is the modern format used to attract the attention of employers and encourages them to go read through your CV, which is the main objective of the CV.
