Presentation Presented by: CLC Alumni Network

The Guideline The first thing is to research the company!! Do you think it is a good question to ask;” What is the company core business?” Then you need to sell is to sell yourself, to get the employee to pay you to work for them.

The Guideline He (or she) may have to read through 100 CVs in half an hour, and will have two piles - 'possibles' and 'waste-bin'.   So yours must be easy to read, short and attractive.

The Guideline Using bullet points to minimise word usage. Making it shorter, more readable, more understandable No grammatical or spelling error, of course no U = you, luv = love, etc Bold to emphasis

The Guideline Make frequent use of active verbs, such as, achieved, set up, managed, responsible for, led. Make clear what your individual contribution was using positive language and include your responsibilities and achievements. Back everything up with quantifiable facts, such as size of budgets and results achieved, to make your skills tangible.

The Guideline Prepare one for yourself –Use it to fill in the application form. Don’t cheat, just to emphasis the correct thing

MUST in your CV Personal Details Career Objective Education and Qualifications Work Experience Achievements Extra-Curricular Activities General Skills Etc, publication…..


Cover Letter Instead of Dear Sir, use the name In a small company, it may be the managing director. In a medium size company, it may be the head of section/department. Only in a large company will there be a Personnel or Human Resource Department.)

Cover Letter Start your letter with an underline heading giving the job title you are interested in. (If you saw the job advertised, say where you saw it.) To begin, prepare a list of your key competencies and skills that your employer will be looking for. Be analytical about yourself and identify your main selling points that differentiate yourself from competitors

Cover Letter You need to succinctly emphasize why an employer may want to meet and employ you. Highlight your transferable skills, achievements and versatility; what you can contribute and what makes you different. Mention personality traits relevant to the role applied for

Close your letter with a polite expression of interest in further dialogue with the recruiter. This is customized, so no sample. Hahahaha.

Q&A Is SPM results important? Race, marital status, religion important? Reference?
