The most accepted way of presenting yourself in the domain of job searching is Curriculum Vitae (CV) in which the ability of presenting yourself along with the qualities you possess determines your acceptability for a particular job. Failing to present yourself in a better and smarter way than others may cause you to fail in getting a job you deserve as well as desire in the highly competitive field of job searching.
In this regard it is extremely important to keep a few valuable points in mind while preparing your CV.

1. Correct Information: Your CV must contain correct information. Presenting wrong or made-up information in a CV gives a negative idea about the candidate. Therefore, putting any wrong information in the CV is extremely harmful for the candidate’s career.

2. Style: Make sure to follow the same format or style throughout the CV since the format is also important.

3. Include Your Image: You must include your recently captured passport-size image at the beginning of your CV. Although there is no specific instruction about where to include the image, most of the people prefer to attach the image on the upper left corner of the front page of the CV. However, you can add the image on either side of the front page as long as it is at the top. Never include image at the bottom of the CV.

4. Career Objective: Following the previous sections you have to include your career objective in the CV in an interesting way with a few words. This gives your potential employer an idea about your objective for the job.

5. Academic Qualifications: A fundamental part of a CV is the Academic Qualification section. Hence, you should not make any mistake in this section. You can put your academic qualifications in a Table or by using bullet-points. You can put your academic degrees in either ascending or descending order of the years when you were awarded the degrees.

6. Achievements: You must include any worth-mentioning achievements from your academic career. This will make your CV more resourceful and informative. You should also mention any other achievements besides your academic achievements. If you have taken part in any workshop or seminar, you may also include that in your CV.

7. Area of Expertise: In the CV make sure to include all the skills you have.

8. Previous Experience: For the candidates who are currently holding jobs, it is very important to briefly and clearly describe the job you are currently doing and, if any, jobs you previously did. You should highlight your responsibilities and types of works you do/did in your current/previous jobs.

9. Hobbies/Interests: Besides your professional skills, you should also mention in the CV if you have any other skill or interest. If you held the membership of any club (such as debating club, sports club etc.), you should also mention that in your CV.

10. Reference: Last but not least is the reference section of your CV. Keep in mind that you should include at least two referees. Referee cannot be from your relatives. For the candidates who are currently holding a job, it is recommended to have one of the referees from your current employee.

***Bonus: It is very important to update your CV on a regular basis. As soon as you achieve something new (degree, award, job etc.), add that to your CV. Furthermore, it is recommended to keep both hardcopy and softcopy (PDF, DOC etc.) of your CV.
