Tips for an effective Resume

Keep it as short and relevant as possible

Keep it concise. You should split your CV/Resume into sections, such as Personal Information, Qualifications, Employment History and Interests.

Personal Information
Include your name, full address, telephone numbers (day/evening/mobile), email address and date of birth.

List both academic and non-academic qualifications in chronological order, giving grades. Do not include irrelevant information.

Employment History
Beginning with your most recent job, include your responsibilities, duration of employment and reasons for leaving. Do not omit any period of employment for whatever reason, as this may prove awkward at interview. Make your time accountable.

Referee Details
Include these for your most recent five-year employment history, even if you have written references. It is essential that you supply sufficient information, allowing both consultant and potential employers to contact your referees, regardless of whether they are in the UAE or overseas.

Personal Interests
Listing your interests is important, but do not generalise. For example, instead of simply saying 'Cricket', you could expand and say that you have played for a local club for the last four years.

Before submitting your CV/Resume, make sure you check it thoroughly, not just for spelling mistakes but also, to make sure that it is a clear representation of you, that it is relevant and that it will encourage the employer to contact you to find out more. Ask a friend to check it, too. Someone who works in the industry for which you are applying would be particularly beneficial.

Wish You Best Of Luck
