How Ready is your CV for Your Next Job?

As Kenyans, we have a tendency to do things just at the last minute. We know what often follows. Could it be that most employers share this characteristic, and thus demand people with exceptional abilities to deliver under extreme pressure :)

When it comes to career advancement, success comes from taking a long-term and well calculated view of your destiny. Each position you have held should translate into a stepping stone towards a better and more fulfilling job. And, the easiest way to explore the frontiers ahead in your career path is by sending prospective employers your CV and cover letter.

Updating the CV

However, updating your CV goes beyond simply keying in a few bullet points indicating your new job title and list of responsibilities. So, you imagine the employer didn't know what responsibilities come with the position? Haha! Surprisingly, most CVs don't tell the employer anything new, of course, besides the applicant's name and contacts. 

To spice up your presentation, think of adding an executive summary highlighting your milestones, right at the top of your CV. Describe your achievements with quantifiable statistics whenever possible, to demonstrate, in figures, your true worth to prospective employers.

The reality about the job market is that if you don't market your successes and achievements, someone else will present their own, and get what was your dream job. Did you ever attend an interview only for the employer to hire someone you considered inferior to you? Call it the power of marketing. 

If you ever talked to a marketer, then you know that making a sale is a game of psychology - from the moment you say hi to the prospect, to sealing the deal. The same applies with marketing your capabilities through your CV and Cover Letters.
