Welcome to Episode 9 of Career & Employability Talk with Segun Akiode.
This is a follow-up discussion to Episode 8.
This week’s episode is dedicated to answer a job seekers question – how does one write a professional CV?
To start with, the right mindset for writing a résumé or CV is that of a marketing mindset. You’re a product being sold to a potential employer and the goal of your résumé is to communicate your value (or what you can do) to the employer.
You have to see your résumé as a marketing tool because that is what it is; employers’ first impression about you.
Please note that your résumé or CV does not get you the job offer but it can get you an audience with a recruiter or a hiring a. That audience is an interview opportunity to defend the product called you and land a job.
When a recruiter or hiring manager looks at your CV, your CV must pass the ’30-secs recruiter/hiring manager check’.
Can your resume pass the 30-secs recruiter/hiring manager check? – Download and listen to this week’s episode to find out how your CV can pass this 30-secs CV check.
Happy Listening 🙂
