A general CV is a career document of a prospective candidate willing to take up a job in his sphere of proficiency. It not only contributes to the accuracy of selection on part of the employer but also enables the candidate to keep a configured biography of his inner qualities and desires handy. The written form bars the need of constant vocalization and articulation of one’s strengths and potentials every time he faces an interview board. It also helps the committee of members to take a harmonious decision based on the printed matter.
A general CV labels the facade of the candidate in front of his superiors on the job. Hence, it is extremely important to pay attention to its construction. The layout is what we are talking about. The CV should thus focus on the following:
- The font should be legible and consistent. The headers and footers must be of feasible dimensions.
- All the historical data should come in correct sequence including the years of passing and graduating to higher sessions.
- Credit is given to experiences and special trainings.
- The career objective must be highlighted in this context so that the employers learn about candidate’s larger goals in life.
