Format Of A Nigerian Resume (CV) by uchie(f): 10:46pm On May 28, 2006
Example Of Nigerian CV

Can someone give me a good example of how a Nigerian CV is supposed to look?

I am moving back and the resumes we use here are very different?

Do I have to include me date of birth? state of origin? secondary school attended?

Do I have to list my SSCE result on the CV?

Please let me know or someone put up a sample.

Thanks

Mainwhile, what are they doing with my "sex", state of origin, marital status and all that, in Canada, it is illegal to ask all these daft questions, talk less of put it on a CV

Re: Format Of A Nigerian Resume (CV) by kellorah(f): 1:53pm On Jul 14, 2006
there are some info which you shouldn't put in a CV such as religion because it may be a christian recruiting and maybe he/she doesn't like muslims and vice versa. so i do not advice you to put in religion.
same goes for nationality, especially when you are abroad cos some people can be racist.
another info is REFERENCES. they should be available on request cos you never know who'll start stalking your former boss and prank calling them.

CAN YOUR CV SPEAK BOLDLY IN YOUR ABSENCE?

Most CVs/Resumes/Cover Letters do not get read beyond the first few lines by employers seeking to employ new talents and such resumes are useless to the owners.

Do you think you're affiliated with this category? If yes, quickly contact Memorazzi Studios for a timely intervention.

Thank you.

We hope to meet you soon!
