Structured CV is the key to success
While preparing Curriculum Vitae, Resume and Biodata for applying jobs and for higher education, some of the students are not paying due attention. Even though CV, Resume and Biodata are very commonly used terms, Biodata is for applying higher studies. It must not be below 11 font size in 2 pages. It must include all the courses which are successfully completed. CV and Resume are for the jobs which you are applying. It should be in accordance with the qualifications needed for the post
During interview, structured Resume/CV will be an added advantage. It must accurate, brief and clear. During campus recruitment, if students are not paying due attention while preparing the CV, their chances will be lost. So it must be prepared carefully. Please refer the sample resume and covering letter mentioned below as a ready reckoner.
