Your Professional Life History, Job History, Achievements and Skills
Make sure your CV highlights your achievements.
Writing a CV is easy but writing a good CV isn't.
Achievements can show the employer that you are
able to meet objectives.
So the time has come for a career overhaul. Write a CV that highlights any experience or qualifications in this new area. You would also need a reason in your CV outlining why you want to make a career change.
Having a full CV, is always a good idea.
Keep your CV updated at all times, adding any relevant courses or qualifications.
Address all the job requirements in your CV. If you do not have any formal qualifications that cover the job requirements, try to make up for it by showing your experience. A CV is an essential tool in you job search and career.
The Skills Summary section of your CV includes your main skills. You should only include keywords in this section, do not go into lengthy descriptions of your skills. The skill summary is also called personal profile.
The CV Objective states "What is my next step in my career?" This should be a short, concise statement that informs the employer what kind of position you are looking for. The type of position, the role (managerial, supervisor, contractor) should be included as well.
List all your qualifications in this section. Include all of your education including certifications from non-academic institutions, especially those that are related to your job and/or vacancy. If you have more work experience than qualifications, put yourwork experience before your qualifications.
