What is CV writing , why it is important and Top 5 Do’s and Dont’s

A CV, or curriculum vitae, is a detailed document that outlines an individual’s experience and qualifications for a job. It is a critical tool for job seekers, as it acts as an overview of their skills and qualifications, as well as a marketing tool to demonstrate their suitability for a position. CV writing is the process of preparing and formatting one’s CV to ensure it stands out from the crowd and accurately reflects the individual’s qualifications and experience.

CV writing is important because it provides employers with a snapshot of an individual’s skills and abilities. It is a key factor in the hiring process and many employers use it to pre-screen applicants and make hiring decisions. CVs are used to demonstrate an individual’s skills, qualifications, and experience, as well as their suitability for a role. It is important to ensure that a CV is well-written and clearly explains the individual’s qualifications and experience.

CV writing should be tailored to the specific job role the individual is applying for. It is important to highlight the relevant skills and qualifications that are required for the position. The personal statement section should be used to provide a brief overview of the individual’s skills and experience, while the education and work experience sections should be used to detail an individual’s qualifications and experience.

Writing a CV can be a daunting process, especially if you’re starting from scratch. To ensure your CV stands out from the crowd, here are the top five do’s and don’ts for writing an effective CV.


  • 1. Tailor your CV for each job: Tailoring your CV for each job you apply for is a must. Make sure you identify which skills, qualifications and experiences are key to the job you’re applying for, and highlight them in your CV.
  • 2. Keep it succinct: Keep your CV to a maximum of two pages. Any longer and you risk losing your reader’s attention, or worse, having your CV thrown in the bin.
  • 3. Create a strong professional profile: Your profile should be a concise summary of your key skills and experiences, which should grab the reader’s attention and make them want to read more.
  • 4. Highlight your achievements: Listing your achievements is a great way to show employers how you have excelled in your previous roles and what you can bring to the company.
  • 5. Proofread: Always make sure you double-check your CV for mistakes. Poor spelling, grammar and punctuation can be enough to turn employers off.


  1. 1. Don’t include irrelevant information: Keep your CV focused on the job you’re applying for, and don’t include any information which is not directly relevant to the role.
  2. 2. Don’t use a generic CV: Generic CVs can be a real turn-off for employers. Make sure your CV is tailored to the job you’re applying for, and that you highlight all the relevant skills and experience you possess.
  3. 3. Don’t lie: It may be tempting to exaggerate your skills and experience, but employers can easily spot a lie and it could cost you the job.
  4. 4. Don’t use jargon: Keep the language in your CV simple and avoid using industry jargon. Not everyone is an expert in your field, and employers may not understand the technical words you use.
  5. 5. Don’t forget to update your CV: Make sure you keep your CV up to date. If you’ve gained new qualifications or experiences, make sure to include them in your CV.

Following these do’s and don’ts for writing an effective CV will help you stand out from the crowd and land your dream job.
