More often, the transition from employment to job search comes as a surprise, and the faster you can find and revise your existing resume file, the faster you can get your job search underway and get back on your feet.
Instead of rewriting your resume from the ground up, follow these simple steps and update the file you already have. You can reuse some of the text you’ve already written, but now is a great time to develop a new layout and a new template.
You never know when an exciting job opportunity will present itself, so it’s always a good idea to have your resume ready to send at a moment’s notice.
Your CV, short for , is a personal marketing tool used to sell yourself to prospective employers.
If recruiters can see on paper that you match all their requirements, they'll be less likely to reject your application. Review the job description of the role you're applying for. It's best to keep to a basic layout that covers your contact details, work experience, education and other skills in that order, but make sure it's easy on the eye.
Make notes on how your education and work experience make you the ideal candidate for the job. Always keep an editable copy of your CV handy on your hard drive, even if you've formulated a killer version that you've converted to PDF, TIFF, JPEG or some other non-editable file format. Rewrite your personal statement or career objective at the top of your CV. Keep things conservative, don't use garish colors and leave plenty of white space on the page so as your information doesn't look too cluttered.
