When applying for a job CV is an important component. When creating and attaching a CV when applying for a job, an error was found by the recruiter in the CV. At the time of making a CV, many job applicants forget to pay attention to the details. It is necessary to know that every detail in the CV is important and has an important role according to the perspective of each of your coveted jobs. The following are mistakes in making a CV that often occur.
A very common mistake that occurs when creating a CV is a typo or a typo. CV is our embodiment to be seen by the recruiter team. There is a way to avoid typos, that is, you need to read and re-examine the CV that has been typed. Do a maximum review of our CV in order to avoid the level of typos that occur.
The mistake in making the next CV is making a very creative CV. Make a CV with a simple format, but still modern. Now many companies in the creative industry for example startups, e-commerce, radio stations only need a CV that is not too rigid for the CV format. It should be noted that we must remain vigilant. Because now a CV that is too creative is difficult to read by an application called the applicant tracking system (ATS). The ATS application is an application used by recruiters to screen the curriculum vitae for each candidate. This application will do a reading for each CV if our CV is difficult to read by this ATS then our chances of passing the selection will be smaller. Thus, getting into the dream job will be increasingly difficult to obtain.
Making lies, for example, claiming a GPA of 3.25 when in fact our GPA is only 3.00 to meet the minimum requirements for the intended job, that data is invalid data. As a result, the recruiter team may later be able to ask for their diploma directly to be checked for validity, this is a very fatal mistake if we apply it when making a CV. The main key in working is honest, honest from small things can be capital to gain the trust of a bigger boss.
Many job applicants when looking for work often carry a CV in many pages. Even reaching 4 sheets, that doesn’t even include cover letters, activity certificates and others. Keep in mind that making a CV is not answering a long essay question. With a long CV, it will not guarantee that it will be accepted by an agency or company, the impact makes it difficult for recruiters to find the main things in our CV. At least in making a CV a maximum of 2 pages so that your biodata will be effectively readable.
In making a CV, do not let us write a bad impression on our previous office or workplace, do not convey information that is closed to a limited circle. Don’t make a CV that aims to create controversy that will reveal the secrets of a company to the public. We must be wise in entering information into the CV. Privacy matters such as blog addresses, names of people or work experience that are confidential, it would be nice not to need to write them down, even though we play an active role in these places.
A very common mistake that occurs when making a CV is entering too much information that is included in the CV. For example, when we were in college, we were active in freelance work, active in internal and external campus organizations, followed by various awards given by the campus. However, it would be nice if we didn’t need to include all of our achievements in the CV, choose achievements that have a higher degree than the achievements we get. Too much input in information will cover the assessment for the main points that we should show. Try to make adjustments to the CV that we want to apply for. All things related to achievement and work experience that are not related to the targeted workplace, it is better to save it first, don’t put it in our CV. There is still an opportunity for us to explain all the achievements we have received so far, namely during the interview session, that is our opportunity to be able to explain all things outside of the profession.
