Buzzwords and keyboards: Employers some times get thousands of resumes for a single job vacancy, so you have to add the right keywords that will get you past the door. The HR personnel will screen CV’s for matches against certain criteria related to the job description; so when writing your CV, make sure that it has the right buzzwords such as MBA, BMN, marketing, project manager etc. This will vary depending on the qualification that you have and what the job calls for.
Refresh you resume after every job application: if you are applying for a job that you really want, try updating and refreshing the resume that you have; your employer will not be impressed by an out dated resume. Highlight all the things that you have done so far that will match what the employer is looking for.
Add relevant things in your resume: employers look for skilled and motivated things in employees, so add things that are relevant like your education, your expertise. Do not add things that are not job related like your favorite food, your fashion interests, etc.
Talk about current things: don’t dedicate an entire paragraph or fifteen bullets about a job that you had ten years ago, save these fort the most recent jobs that you had.
