most jobs these days in this Country aren't gotten by fantastically written CVs. let's focus towards jobs than writing CVs that would be used to sell popcorn.

There's no formula for things like this....just follow the instructions given by the HR! They all have their own different ways of recruiting

Nice tho!

5. Never send your application to multiple recruiters in one mail using Cc (don't be lazy, one mail per application)

This No.5 is the most common among Nigerians. I once worked in a cyber cafe and I know what I am talking about.... You will see some people apply for 10 different jobs at once and you will wonder what is up..

They will tell you that in case anyone goes...

All these criteria are just mere puff to some extent. To get a Job in Nigeria now, one needs Grace of God.

Most employers may not take note of all these things. They are interested in your qualifications,and in some cases,Who sent You.

Stop carrying CV or Resume seeking for job. Tear your CV, it's no longer needed in the job market. What is the difference between your CV and other thousands of CVs in the job market?
There are so many formats of CV writing. The bad news is that none of the formats is important since CV itself it's no longer needed for employment.
Whether you want to work for yourself or for someone, I want to show you what you should start doing, starting from right now.
Instead of scripting and carrying around the perfect CV, I want you to focus on PERSONAL BRANDING!
You will remain a cheap and an ordinary employee until the day you discover that you are a brand.
While you wait or seek for that job, get busy building and developing your personal brand. Stop scouting for the perfect or best CV format.
Listen up. Starting from right now, be deliberate and intentional with every update you make on Facebook, every post you make on your blog, every tweet you post on Twitter and every comment you make on posts.

don't ever. Recievers know BCC emails. Send mails to one recipient at a time
Re: 7 Quick Tips : When Sending Your Job Application. by majekdom2: 10:32am On Sep 13
I disagree with applications on weekend. FYI, there is every tendency your application gets read on a weekend because many see weekends as rest day. Most managers and c level executives don't receive mails on weekends. There is a chance your might get read before others.
