CV WRITING TIP NO 1: Avoid sending scanned copies of your CV. Most database CV searches are done through key word searches. Your CV will not come up on a search if recognised as a fax/scanned copy as the system will see it as an image file, and therefore it will not be searchable.
CV WRITING TIP NO 2: Use as many relevant key words (to your experience) on your CV. Remember that when your CV is saved onto a database, people will do a search to find relevant candidates by key-word searching. If you have used SAP and it is not on your CV, a search for all candidates having used SAP will mean that your CV won’t come up on the search if this key word is omitted.
CV WRITING TIP NO 3. Make sure you elaborate in detail on actual duties and responsibilities in each job position. Recruiters and companies will want to see specifically what you have done within each position. Leaving this off may get people to presume you do not have enough experience for the relevant requirement, added to the fact that it may make your CV less searchable using word searches for CVs.
