Invest in your resume
Did you find the job offer you’ve been looking for? Do you really want to make the most out of this opportunity? In that case, adequately preparing your CV is your ticket to an interview!
Your resume is a very personal presentation and should be built in order to highlight your qualities and skills, while being tailored to each specific job application.
Before you start deciding what you should include in your CV, it’s very important for you to properly research the company you’re applying to: get to know their values, their mission, their business area and the projects they’re involved in, so you can understand what they do and how they communicate.
In addition to knowing the company, you must also make sure that you understand exactly what type of job you are applying for and what the selection criteria is, as this will be important to build a resume that is tailored to each job opportunity. Recruiters receive thousands of applications and, to make a difference, you must present a CV that is designed to show that your profile is the most suitable one for the job. This is easier to achieve when recruiters can find common points between your profile and their offer.
Tips for organizing your CV
There is no single “right” way to build a resume, but you should keep in mind some good practices that are preferred by many recruiters:
