I wish for someone to re work my CV. I wish for you to note below the following comments:
1) Get it Together -Make sure content is compelling , with the design and layout to be outstanding
2) Require a great design & be really good looking.
3. Find a Great Font
4. Contact Information - Name and contact information should appear prominently at the top of the page without exception and should stand out, make a good first impression and gain credibility that will bring the reader in to the rest of your document. .
5. Make It Skimmable - Remember that many hiring managers will first view your resume on the computer screen. People read differently on a computer screen than on paper. They skim and scan instead of reading every word. That means it’s critical to make sure that your resume is skimmable — and it should only take you a few minutes to make a dramatic difference in readability.
•First, clearly mark your headings. Each heading should be in whichever font you’ve chosen, but bolded or italicized, and 2 font points larger. This makes them easily identifiable for the hiring manager (or, in most cases, the recruiter or HR person responsible for first viewing resumes).
•Let the headings have some white space around them as well. A cramped resume is no one’s friend — and not very easy on the eyes.
•Keep your paragraphs and bullet point entries short. Big blocks of text can be off-putting.
•Selectively emphasize key words or phrases in bold. Don’t overdo it, though. If too much text is bolded, nothing stands out.
•In general, avoid setting type in all caps. Because the letters start to look the same, words in all caps are harder to read. In small doses, text in ALL CAPS is acceptable, but only if you space out the letters.
6. Color is OK! If wielded with a light hand, color can add a needed point of interest that will draw in the reader. A black and white resume is the norm, but adding one touch of color is not unheard of. Consider adding a different color monogram, or making your headings a dark blue instead of black. Keep in mind that if you’re sending the resume electronically, the recipient may not print it out in color despite your intentions.
7. Make a good design so it stands out! -
8. Link Them to Work Samples - websites youtube etc
