Write short sentences with more impactful words in your CV

Write short sentences with more impactful words in your CV.

Lengthy CV puts the recruiter off. Keep the sentences short and use words which demonstrate your hold of situation like managed, arranged, supervised etc.

Formal font faces- A font like Verdana-10 should be good for the content while the Name at the top can be written in Verdana-12, with a bold font face.

Use the same tense through out the CV. Changing the tense in every second line leaves the reader confused and annoyed.

Avoid funky e-mail ids in your CV
Avoid sending your CV through a funky e-mail id when you are applying for a position that demands seriousness and maturity...
