Years ago, someone asked me if I would edit her CV. Because your girl's always hustling, I said yes and quickly taught myself about what recruiters want to see in a #Resume. Since then, #CVEditing has become something I do regularly. Here's a thread on a few things I've learnt.
People will tell you not to make the basic errors - spelling mistakes, hard-to-read fonts, inaccurate info, etc. But the problem I see most often is that people's CVs don't reflect who they are. Your CV should be who you are and what you offer an employer, on paper.
Instead, people take the CV format they were taught in school and just fill in the blanks. They list "responsibilities" rather than focusing on the value they add to the workplace. Your CV needs to make you stand out from the rest of the candidates for a job you're targeting.
