How to form a targeted message when writing your CV

by Elisa Montagni

A successful job search requires good planning and organization. You may think that you are prepared to look for employers and career paths, by creating a network with all the contacts of interest, and by sending out prospecting letters. But the first step is to be aware of your entire work history, personal skills and interests.

You should be able to create your “identi-kit”according to your living and working experience, in order to understand in which direction you want to go. Your path should appear as a series of thoughtful choices, taken step by step, consistent with your training and work. It has to lead up to the present, rather than an haphazard collection of reckless choices. Your path is not that linear, you say? Then it’s your job to select carefully what features of your work history and skill sets your CV should display. To light the way, having a detailed knowledge of your own experience and of your own capabilities is not enough; you should also have made some research about the job opportunities and the company you’re applying to.

Be prepared to customize your CV by selecting properly the most enticing bits. It is also important to be aware of the trends related to your field of interest: Which skills are particularly popular? What are the industry buzzwords? What are the latest tools and technology affecting your work sector? When customizing your resume, you should be sure to include these attention-grabbers.

Top Tip:

Resumes are chronological. They outline your story. Interviewers want to see how you grew through different experiences”
