Points to note before sending out your CV to a recruiter by TheCvBank: 1:35pm On Jul 08
Getting a job in this country is hard work, writing a compelling CV is harder. But nothing is impossible! Carefully consider these few points below when drafting your CV.

1. Tailor your CV to the job. Your CV shouldn't be your life story but should be tailored for the job you're applying for, focusing on the parts that are important for that particular job.

2. Make your CV clear, neat and tidy. Get somebody to check your spelling and grammar. No-one wants to read a CV that is squashed together and includes too much information. Your CV should be easy to read with space between each section and plenty of white space. Use left-justified text as it's easiest to read, using black text on good quality white or cream paper.

3. Place the important information up-front. Put experience and education achievements in reverse chronological order. Include experience and interests that might be of use to the employer: IT skills, voluntary work, foreign language competency, driving skills, leisure interests that demonstrate team skills and organization/leadership skills.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SEARCH!!!

You have a better chance hustling and making some sensible cash for yourself than landing a job in this recession beaten Nigeria. So tailor your CV to meet your own needs i.e solve a niche problem and get paid doing so.

NB: only for the hustlers at heart, job seekers at heart disregard this advice.

Signing out - former job seeker, now self employed dude.

Nigerians, let us jettison writing and submitting CVs. Rather, let us learn how to package business proposals. Let us also master how to export commodities to foreign countries and make a staggering amount of money as profit. Click on the link on my signature to know how you will go about it.

keep shut if you have nothing constructive or say. What ways are you positively improving lives in this forum? You're shutting people that are trying to ? You think working in chevron or shell is all there is to living a good life? Speaks volumes about your complex, or inferior state of mind!
