A couple of months ago I started helping friends revamp their CVs and LinkedIn profiles. 80% of them got a job they wanted right after the revamp. I didn’t do anything except advise them with a bit of targeted messaging, and highlights in their achievements. After revamping their CV, I told them how to go about applying it on LinkedIn.
Here are the 3 quick tips that you should keep in mind when you’re revamping your CV:
Highlight Your Achievements on Your Resume
With each of your Jobs in the Experiences section, write what you were hired to do with first sentence. Not more than that – use Twitter’s 140 character template if you have to. The rest of that space should be used to describe what you have brought into the organisation or how you’ve changed things.
