Pimp My Cover Letter

On By In 1

When I a couple of weeks back got the information that I had been hired to the job I started earlier this week, I instantly knew that I wanted to write more about the job search process here on the blog. So I got this idea of starting a little Job series that I wanted to start today with the most crucial step of job hunt: how do you write a goodCV?

Appearance

Before going in to the details of what your CV should include, let’s talk about how it should look like first. Many of us have quite basic CVs, simple, black & white and not that personal. Some would even call them boring. Most importantly, they definitely don’t stand out.

I had one of those before as well. Until I one day came upon some pretty CV templates on Etsy and decided that it was about time I pimped my CV and made it look a lot more interesting! Here underneath I’ve gathered some of my personal favourites from Etsy, the one I’m using isnumber five.


1. here / 2. here / 3. here
4. here / 5. here / 6. here
7. here / 8. here / 9. here

The good thing about these templates is that even though they are ready made for you, you can still adjust the fonts and the colors and even move some parts if you wish to do so. They are also super easy to fill in and I like the fact that all the different parts have been inserted so that it makes it easier to follow the structure. Cause structure really is the key, your CV should be legible and the reader should be able to find all the different parts easily. Why I love these templates is because they really give your CV a more personalized touch making your CV look more like you and also with one of these your CV is definitely something more than just a basic boring black & white paper. When it comes to mine, I’ve only gotten admiration over it.

Content

But even though the looks of your CV are important, it’s still the inside that matters the most. So, what should you think about when filling in your CV?

– Fill in your CV with just the essential information. Use clear and compact words and sentences and don’t babble too much. You can give the reader more information in your cover letter instead.

– Fill your work and education experience in chronological order so that the newest ones are at the top of the list and the oldest ones in the bottom. If you have a lot of work experience, bring only the most relevant previous work experiences so that the list doesn’t get overly long.

– Under every work experience, write down what firm were you working for, how long time and what was your role in the firm. Also add a little explanation of your tasks and range of responsibility. Among these you can also add a little note about your possible achievements in this job, if you find something relevant you want to mention. This way your future employer will get a better picture of what you have been doing and which results you’ve been gaining.

– If you have some kind of special skill, you should mention this already in the beginning of the CV in form of a little slogan or a mention under your name – like they have done in some of these templates.

– Don’t forget to add a picture of yourself. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So by adding a picture, the reader will get a more proper view about you as a person. But don’t just take any picture, you should choose it wisely. Preferably choose a picture taken from the front with your face showing properly. Think also about wearing suitable and proper clothes and not having any weird expressions on your face. Also a total no no, which doesn’t seem to be that obvious is not using any party pictures or the types of that, no one’s gonna take you seriously with a picture like that. Think seriously and choose a presentable picture of yourself. At some cases, for example if you’re applying for a more creative/artsy job you might be able to use a more creative picture just to show your creative side. But if you’re applying to a “normal” job, it’s better to play it safe.

Hope these tips were helpful! The series continues next Sunday again!
