CV by Job type: Digital CV


Creating an effective resume is a difficult task, especially if it’s been awhile since you sent out resumes. More so, with the blooming of the digital age, resume creating is much more of an art compared to years before.

Make sure to include only relevant work details in your CV, there’s no need for you to list down every single job you’ve had up to now. Another tip is to organize your resume chronologically; it allows for an easier assessment of your work history and generally gives a cleaner look to the resume. For gaps in your resume, explain them in a way that makes sense. Supposed you left work in the legal field to work for nonprofits organizations, but then decided to return again after a few years. Whenever you include something that might be negative in your CV, turn it around into something positive.

In this Digital age, recruiters are looking for certain keywords in resumes to screen them. Tailor your CV for each job you pursue, using keywords and phrases that echo the experiences that job requires works wonders. But of course, keywords and phrases aren’t the only things that will land you that high-paying job. Create a resume that is crisp and clean, choose simple 10 – 12 font sizes and use bold and italics sparingly – of course, bullet points are an essential when listing down skills or interests that complement the overall picture of your CV.

Just make sure to create a resume that is easy on the eyes, but presents yourself perfectly to the employer. Good luck!
