Interview Preparation Tips

Interview Preparation Tips :

Do not sent CVs bye-mail if you have not been asked to. The reason is that often all e-mails are not downloaded and/or read. If a prospective employer receives 3,000 applications bye-mail, the possibility of all of them being downloaded and then read is remote.

In cases where prospective employers insist that the CV be sent by e-mail, there are some points that you should remember....

Keep it simple.

Convert your resume to a plain text format. This is in cases where you are asked not to send the CV as an attachment.

Don't centre the text-align it to the left margin.

If you're using MS Word, save the document as text only or copy and paste it into a text editor such as Notepad.

Keep your line length to no more than 65 characters (letters, spaces and punctuation).

Do not use graphics, bullets, lines, bold, italics, underlines or shading.

Use capital letters for your headings.

Carefully proofread the plain text version, because some characters can show up as question marks.

Replace bullet points with asterisks (*).

Don't compress spaces between letters. Use a second page rather than pack everything into one page.

Put your name on the first line on the CV. Do not put anything else on that line.

If you are sending your CV in the body of the e-mail, do not distinguish between pages, as the full e-mail will be downloaded into the database as one sheet.

Don't send a resume as an e-mail attachment unless you are specifically instructed to do so. Many employers discard unsolicited attachments.

If the CV is to be faxed, fax it on the fine mode as opposed to the standard mode as the writing will be much clearer.

Do not fold your CV as it makes faxing difficult at times. It also makes scanning and retrieval awkward.
