A winning CV: The general guidelines

A CV is you and we cannot stop writing about CVs because they are what give people jobs. If you get the CV right then you are safe. The best and most clear definition of a CV is that it is a means to an end. This mean, a CV shouldn’t be anything close to an autobiography. Keep it professional and as objective as possible. Details of the number of kids you have and your goal of being an entrepreneur 10 years to come are beside the point. It is important to realize that the CV stage is not about giving the HR Managers a good knowledge of who you are – it’s simply about being placed in their “yes” pile, rather than their “no” section.

You’ll have plenty of time to prove how personable, friendly and enthusiastic you are at the interview stage. Here’s some advice and CV writing tips to give you the edge:

Indicate your current and expected salary.

Have you seen adverts asking you to quote your salary and the expected salary? We have discussed this question before but we won’t mind repeating it because it probably is the most difficult question in an interview. If you do not get this in an interview, you will be asked to quote it in your application. Many employers have resulted to asking job candidates to quote current and expected salary. What is the best way to tackle this? Do you indicate salary requirement in the cover letter or on the CV?

So, why do employers do this?

·         Asking for salary requirements help employers screen out job-seekers — both the lazy job-seekers who don’t bother to conduct any research and the over- and under-qualified job-seekers.

Sex is the ultimate career-ender

By Peter Kamuri

The widely reported sex scandal early this week involving Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the 62 year old head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has shocked the world.

Kahn is an economist of no mean repute. Back in France, he cuts the image of a political colossus – one who was primed to depose the embattled president Nicolas Sarkozy next year.


Sadly the revelations of an alleged scandal and attempted rape, which have seen charged, have left him with an egg on the face.

This is sure to sink his political career. Already he has quit as the IMF chief. This could as well be the sad story of Strauss Kahn’s political ambitions.

Back home, the country on Monday woke up the tragic news of the death of Olympic marathoner, Samuel Wanjiru, after a fall from the balcony of his house during a domestic dispute with his wife and another woman, according to police report.

A Winning CV: How long should it be?

What is the correct length of my CV? Is your CV too short or too long? There are repercussions for your CV being either. So how long is a job winning CV? There are various theories about the appropriate length of a CV. In today’s extremely competitive job market a CV that is either too long or too short runs the risk of being instantly discarded by potential employers. This brutal method of short-listing means it makes sense to ensure your CV is just the right length, to give yourself the best possible chance of success.

Best practice guidelines suggest that an entry level CV, i.e. that of a graduate or school leaver with no previous significant employment history, should cover 2 A4 pages at max. However, a CV for someone with considerably more experience should cover more pages. CVs should always be typed, for clarity and neatness and you should use font size 12. If it is necessary to use a smaller font size to fit all of your required information in, then you should certainly not go any smaller than font size 11.
