5 Key Elements You Must Include In Your CV

 In Uncategorized

Your CV is your ticket to interviews and job offers, so it needs to be immaculate from start to finish. It only takes one mistake for a recruiter to start doubting your credibility, so you must ensure that your CV is error-free.

Before applying for a job on the local market, we suggest taking a look at some of the most important aspects that a CV has to include:

1. Contact Information

Include your name, telephone number(s), and email address(es) so any interested employers can contact you easily. Ensure that the spellings are correct or you may miss out on an opportunity, as the employer may not be able to get in touch with you.

2. Additional Information

Information such as picture, nationality, age, gender, visa status, and driving license status are optional but are very important in the Middle East as they give the employer a clearer picture of your profile; thereby increase your chances of landing your desired position.

3. Language Skills

Another example of a skill that an employer might be interested in is language knowledge. By this we mean a mention of the (foreign) languages that you can speak and write.

4. Work Experience

List your most recent position first, continuing in reverse chronological order including the name, location, website and dates of your employment for each company you have worked for.

5. Education

In reverse chronological order give brief details of your academic and professional qualifications along with the grades you achieved.

6. Clear and Simple Layout

It should be clear to anyone reading your CV where to find the information they’re looking for, with enough ‘white space’ to ensure they’re not overawed at first glance.
