the CV

resume writing

Are there good resumes & CV's to preview?

Yes. BUT... some of the most effective resumes and CV's use a combination of everything including bullet points, numbering and text. Experiment with what looks clearest to you, what is most easy to read and what has the most impact visually. There unfortunately isn't the best CV except... maybe these ones.

Word of warning: ‘trying to be amusing’, ‘using coloured paper’ (this confused pathfolios but it was in a survey by Forum3) and overusing the first person pronoun can unfortunately suggest a lack of team playing. Valid reasons graduates have been given unsuccessful applications

 

Does pathfolios write different CVs according to the business or industry they are applying to?

Not so obviously, yes.

Each industry and for that matter each organisation will have their own unique requirements. You need to make sure that your CV emphasises skills and experiences that the recruiter is interested in.... sigh. If you have time.

How does pathfolios email a CV?
To be professional it is best to enclose the CV and cover letter separately, as attachments, in either ‘word’ (or common word processing formats like .rtf or .txt) or as a PDF. The email (YES! Write an email with the attachments!) should be short and simple.

‘Please find attached my CV and cover letter in response to the advertisement for the post of (job title).’

On the rare occasion that an organisation does not accept attachments (Hmm.. All that hard work formatting), paste both your CV and cover letter into the body of the email, keeping them absolutely plain and simple. 

pathfolios' spelling and grammar is atrocious and horrible and poor, what to do?

Always use the spell check and make sure that it is a UK-English version. The Language Centre can help you with grammar and you may find it useful to ask a native English-speaking friend to read what you have written.

Does pathfolios mention gender?

Whether you are female or male should have no effect on your ability to do a job and, except in certain rare situations, it is illegal for employers to discriminate on the grounds of gender. The issue doesn’t need clarification and it is still entirely optional. 

 

Self note: This article could definitely and potentially get really long and boring. Need more articles to split this up. Hmmm.
