CV by Job type: Property CV


Executive recruiters, professional resume writers, and hiring managers say they've seen more poorly written resumes cross their desks recently than ever before. So make sure to create a resume that well worth their time.

Hiring managers are seeking candidates who can help solve a problem or a need within the company. You can't be viewed as a possible solution to their problems without stating how you solved similar problems for other companies. Focus on what you did in the job, not just on what your job was. Every word in your resume should be relevant to the job you’re applying for. Your resume is the first phase of your job search which you have total control over. Based on the strength of your CV, you’ll either be selected for an interview from among hundreds of candidates or passed over.

But no matter how much time and effort you put into writing your resume, it won’t get through the first time if it isn’t formatted correctly.  It’s harder for a reader to pick up information if the format is all over the place. Use clean fonts, clear headings, and a logical format to give you that sure boost.

Resume sample looks only get you so far without the proper connections. That’s right, NETWORK! Especially in the property sector, networking comes in handy. It can provide you with personal business contacts, keep information from people you've worked for, people who worked for you but have moved on, vendors and sales representatives with whom you've dealt in the past five years, and even people listed in the alumni directory of your alma mater. With a solid resume and great networking, you are closer to increasing your odds of landing that dream job!
