32.Here are 15 key qualities that can offset job experience and qualification requirements:
1. Confidence If you are confident in yourself, others will notice it. Its much easier to believe in someone that believes in them self. Incredere daca ai incredere in tine,ceilalti vo observa. Este mult mai usor sa crezi in cineva care crede in el. 2. Enthusiasm In a professional environment it excites the people around you and makes them feel better about what they are doing. Entuziasm intr-un mediu profesional incita persoanele din jurul tau si te fac sa te simti mai bine. 3. Positive Attitude A positive attitude immediately sets a productive tone in an interview. This in turn gives the employer some insight into your potential within a productive employment environment. Atitudine pozitiva - o atitudine pozitiva produce un on pozitiv intr-un interviu. Asta da,in schimb, o alta impresie angajatorului despe potentialul tau intr-un mediu productiv. 4. Compatible Personality As I stated earlier, managers habitually hire people they like. They also avoid applicants with potential personality conflicts. This can be a tough quality to work on.

45

Personaliate compatibila cum am pecizat mai sus, managerii angajeaza persoanele care le plac. Ei evitand sa angajeze solicitanti cu personalitate conflictuala. Asta poate fi o calitate dura. 5. Industry Awareness General industry awareness pertaining to current trends and events can go a long way in showing your motivation to learn and grow within the field with which you are applying. Cunostinte in domeniu/ industrie cunostintele generale asupra trendului curent si evenimente merg impreuna pentru ati arata motivatia de a invata si creste in domeniul pe care il soliciti. 6. Lateral Leadership Leadership is universally applicable across any field of work. If youve been successful in a leadership role, even in an setting lateral to the one you are applying for, its worth discussing in an interview. Conditia de lider este solicitata in orice domeniu. Daca ai avut succes intr-o pozitie de lider, chiar si pentru o anumita parte a corporatiei pe care o soliciti, merita sa discuti la interviu. 7. Education Education does not necessarily replace experience. However, if you have truly excelled in secondary education and earned degrees relevant to the job for which you are applying, it can get the employers mind off your lack of experience qualifications. Educatie- educatia nu inlocuieste experienta. Oricum, dac a ai excelat intro educatie secundara si primesti o pregatire relevanta pentru jobul pe care il soliciti, poate schimba parerea angajatorului despre lipsa ta de experienta. 8. Communication Skills Without them, you lose. Straightforward, intelligent communication makes you look confident, prepared, and trustworthy. It gives you the ability to sell yourself to an employer and sets you up to display many of the other qualities on this list. Abilitati de comunicare- fara ele pierzi . O comunicare directa si inteligenta e face sa pari increzator, pregatit si de incredere. Iti da posibilitatea de a te vinde angajatorului si de a prezenta multe alte calitati din in lista. 9. Lifestyle Stability Possessing a stable track record with past jobs, schooling, and even the law always works in your favor. Employers look at stability as a measure of your loyalty to others. Stilul de viata posedand o conduita stabila la joburile precedente legea este in favoarea ta . Angajaorii cauta stabilitate si loialitate. 10. Appearance and Dress While appearance isnt everything, it can make you look older, smarter and more emotionally mature. Its all a mental game of psychological perception. Some people do judge a book by its cover sadly, thats just something you will have to deal with.

46

Aparenta si imbracaminte in timp ce aparenta nu reprezinta totul, te poate face sa pari mai in varsta, mai inteligent si mai matur emotional. Este un joc mental de perceptie psihologica. Unii oameni judeca carte dupa coperta...din nefericire,asta e ceva cu care trebuie sa te obisnuiesti. 11. Open Minded Flexibility Displaying a flexible and open minded willingness to adapt to new environments and tasks makes you look like someone who could get any job done. And thats all an employer really wants, someone who gets the job done. Aratarea dorintei deschisa si flexibila de a te adapta la un mediu nou si la cereri, te face sa pari ca ai putea face orice job. Si asta este ceea ce-si doreste orice angajator. 12. Determination Its always good measure to clearly express your determination to get things done. Make it known that you are not a quitter and that you always finish the tasks you start. Detrminare Este mereu o masura buna de a-ti exprima clar determinarea lucrului facut.Fa cunoscut faptul ca nu esti o persoana care sa renunte, si mereu iti inchiei indatoririle. 13. Courteous Manners People typically have a positive reaction toward someone who displays respectful gestures and courteous manners. It shows off a certain level of kindness and also displays that persons ability to get along well with others. When placed in front of a client or business partner, an employer wants to know that their employees are courteous and well mannered. Bune maniere oamenii, in general au o reactie pozitiva vis-a-vis de persoanele care prezinta gesturi respectoase si bune maniere.Arata un anumit nivel de bunatate dar si abilitatea persoanei de a se intelege cu ceilalti. Atunci cand se afla infata unui partener de afaceri,angajatorul vrea sa stie ca angajatii lui sunt politicosi. 14. Genuine Sincerity Being sincere and honest when answering questions in an interview is always the smart way to go. The basis for any successful business relationship is trust. If you start with dishonesty, you will eventually fail.

Sinceritate sa fii sincer si onest atunci cand raspunzi la intrebari intrun interviu este cel mai istet mod cu putinta. Baza pentru o afacere de succes este incredera. Daca incepi prin a fi neonest, in cele din urma vei esua.

What is a CV?
Curriculum Vitae: an outline of a person's educational and professional history, usually prepared for job applications (L, lit.: the course of one's life). Another name for a CV is a rsum. A CV is the most flexible and convenient way to make applications. It conveys your personal details in the way that presents you in the best possible light. A CV is a marketing document in which you are marketing something: yourself! You need to "sell" your skills, abilities, qualifications and experience to employers. It can be used to make multiple applications to employers in a specific career area. For this reason, many large graduate recruiters will not accept CVs and instead use their own application form.
58

An application form is designed to bring out the essential information and personal qualities that the employer requires and does not allow you to gloss over your weaker points as a CV does

Often selectors read CVs outside working hours. They may have a pile of 50 CVs from which to select five interviewees. It's evening and they would rather be in the pub with friends. If your CV is hard work to read: unclear, badly laid out and containing irrelevant information, they will just just move on to the next CV. Treat the selector like a child eating a meal. Chop your CV up into easily digestible morsels (bullets, short paragraphs and note form) and give it a clear logical layout, with just the relevant information to make it easy for the selector to read. If you do this, you will have a much greater chance of interview.

There is no "one best way" to construct a CV; it is your document and can be structured as you wish within the basic framework below. It can be on paper or on-line .

When should a CV be used?


When an employer asks for applications to be received in this format When an employer simply states "apply to ..." without specifying the format When making speculative applications (when writing to an employer who has not advertised a vacancy but who you hope my have one)

What information should a CV include?


Personal details

Normally these would be your name, address, date of birth (although with age
Some employers may spend as little as 45 seconds skimming a rsum before branding it not of interest, maybe or of interest.

BI Business School discrimination laws now in force this isn't essential), telephone number and email.
Education and qualifications

Your degree subject and university, plus A levels and GCSEs or equivalents. Mention grades unless poor!
Work experience Use action words such as developed, planned and organised. 59

Even work in a shop, bar or restaurant will involve working in a team, providing a quality service to customers, and dealing tactfully with complaints. Don't mention the routine, non-people tasks (cleaning the tables) unless you are applying for a casual summer job in a restaurant or similar. Try to relate the skills to the job. A finance job will involve numeracy, analytical and problem solving skills so focus on these whereas for a marketing role you would place a bit more more emphasis on persuading and negotiating skills. "All of my work experiences have involved working within a team-based culture. This involved planning, organisation, co-ordination and commitment e.g., in retail, this ensured daily sales targets were met, a fair distribution of tasks and effective communication amongst all staff members."

Writing about your interests

Reading, cinema, stamp-collecting, embroidery Suggests a solitary individual who doesn't get on with other people. This may not be true, but selectors will interpret the evidence they see before them. Reading, cinema, travel, socialising with friends. A little better. At least a suggestion that they can get on with other people. Cinema: member of the University Film-Making Society Travel: travelled through Europe by train this summer in a group of four people, visiting historic sites and practising my French and Italian Reading: helped younger pupils with reading difficulties at school. This could be the same individual as in the first example, but the impression is completely the opposite: an outgoing proactive individual who helps others.

Interests and achievements Keep this section short and to the point. As you grow older, your employment record will take precedence and interests will typically diminish greatly in length and importance. Bullets can be used to separate interests into different types: sporting, creative etc.

Don't use the old boring cliches here: "socialising with friends". Don't put many passive, solitary hobbies (reading, watching TV, stamp collecting) or you may be perceived as lacking people skills Show a range of interests to avoid coming across as narrow : if everything centres around sport they may wonder if you could hold a conversation with a client who wasn't interested in sport. Hobbies that are a little out of the ordinary can help you to stand out from the crowd: skydiving or mountaineering can show a sense of wanting to stretch yourself and an ability to rely on yourself in demanding situations 61

Any interests relevant to the job are worth mentioning: current affairs if you wish to be a journalist; a fantasy share portfolio such as Bullbearings if you want to work in finance. Any evidence of leadership is important to mention: captain or coach of a sports team, course representative, chair of a student society, scout leader: "As captain of the school cricket team, I had to set a positive example, motivate and coach players and think on my feet when making bowling and field position changes, often in tense situations" Anything showing evidence of employability skills such as teamworking, organising, planning, persuading, negotiating etc.

Skills

The usual ones to mention are languages (good conversational French, basic Spanish), computing (e.g. "good working knowledge of MS Access and Excel, plus basic web page design skills" and driving ("full current clean driving licence"). If you are a mature candidate or have lots of relevant skills to offer, a skills-based CV may work for you

References Normally two referees are sufficient: one academic (perhaps your tutor or a project supervisor) and one from an employer (perhaps your last parttime or summer job). See our page on Choosing and Using Referees for more help with this.

The order and the emphasis will depend on what you are applying for and what you have to offer. For example, the example media CV lists the candidate's relevant work experience first.

When asked what would make them automatically reject a candidate, employers said: If you are applying for more than one type of work, you should have a different CV tailored to each career area, highlighting different aspects of your skills and experience.

CVs with spelling mistakes or typos 61% CVs that copied large amounts of wording from the job posting 41% CVs with an inappropriate email address 35% CVs that dont include a list of skills 30% CVs that are more than two pages long 22% CVs printed on decorative paper 20% CVs that detail more tasks than results for previous positions 16% CVs that include a photo 13% CVs that have large blocks of text with little white space 13%

CareerBuilder A personal profile at the start of the CV can work for jobs in competitive industries such as the media or advertising, to help you to stand out from the crowd. If used, it needs to be original and well written. Dont just use the usual hackneyed expressions: I am an excellent communicator who works well in a team You will also need a Covering Letter to accompany your CV.

What makes a good CV?


There is no single "correct" way to write and present a CV but the following general rules apply: It is targeted on the specific job or career area for which you are applying and brings out the relevant skills you have to offer It is carefully and clearly laid out: logically ordered, easy to read and not cramped

It is informative but concise It is accurate in content, spelling and grammar. If you mention attention to detail as a skill, make sure your spelling and grammar is perfect!

If your CV is written backwards on pink polkadot paper and it gets you regular interviews, it's a good CV! The bottom line is that if it's producing results don't change it too much but if it's not, keep changing it until it does. If it's not working, ask people to look at it and suggest changes. Having said this, if you use the example CVs in these pages as a starting point, you are unlikely to go far wrong.

How long should a CV be?


There are no absolute rules but, in general, a new graduate's CV should cover no more than two sides of A4 paper. If you can summarise your career history comfortably on a single side, this is fine and has advantages when you are making speculative applications and need to put yourself across concisely. However, you should not leave out important items, or crowd your text too closely together in order to fit it onto that single side. Academic and technical CVs may be much longer: up to 4 or 5 sides.

Tips on presentation

Your CV should be carefully and clearly laid out - not too cramped but not with large empty spaces either. Use bold and italic typefaces for headings and important information Never back a CV - each page should be on a separate sheet of paper. It's a good idea to put your name in the footer area so that it appears on each sheet. Be concise: a CV is an appetiser and should not give the reader indigestion. Don't feel that you have to list every exam you have ever taken, or every activity you have ever been involved in - consider which are the most relevant and/or impressive. The best CVs tend to be fairly economical with words, selecting the most important information and leaving a little something for the interview: they are an appetiser rather than the main course. Good business communications tend to be short and to the point, focusing on key facts and your CV should to some extent emulate this. Be positive - put yourself over confidently and highlight your strong points. For example, when listing your A-levels, put your highest grade first. Be honest: although a CV does allow you to omit details (such as exam resits) which you would prefer the employer not to know about, you should never give inaccurate or misleading information. CVs are not legal documents and you can't be held liable for anything within, but if a recruiter picks up a suggestion of falsehoods you will be rapidly rejected. An application form which you have signed to confirm that the contents are true is however a legal document and forms part of your contract of employment if you are recruited.

Ce este un CV?

64

Propriuzis, un CV este un memoriu de activitate care se trimite unei institutii sau firme cu scopul de a o informa asupra persoanei tale. Scopul unui bun CV este sa realizeze o invitatie la un interviu. CV-ul tau este o dovada a capacitatii tale de a comunica si de a te organizare. Un CV foarte bine facut arata prin el insusi ce angajat valoros ai putea fi. La fel, un CV realizat intr-o maniera prea subiectiva este o modalitate sigura de-a te scoate din lupta chiar inainte de a incepe. CV-ul nu serveste la povestirea vietii de la A la Z, ci este un document care, inainte de a fi redactat, trebuie foarte bine conceput: el presupune deci o adanca reflectare. Este necesar asadar sa respecti cateva reguli de prezentare si de redactare. Aceasta nu inseamna insa ca trebuie sa copiezi cu fidelitate modelele propuse in revistele de specialitate sau in ghidurile practice. Din aceste modele te poti inspira, adaptandu-le personalitatii si pregatirii tale. Paradoxul unui CV consta in faptul ca trebuie sa fie foarte personal si, in acelasi timp, sa raspunda la cateva reguli bine definite. Un CV competitiv trebuie sa penduleze intre aceste doua cerinte. Pornind de la aceste considerente urmareste recomandarile expuse mai jos inainte de a incepe redactarea propriului tau curriculum vitae. * Angajatorii au mult de lucru, asa ca sa nu faci greseala sa le ceri sa citeasca un CV lung si cu multe date nefolositoare. Un Cv lung va da batai de cap unui angajator, care si asa are foarte putin timp de parcurs CV-uri. CV-ul trebuie sa aiba o pagina, daca este posibil, si 2 pagini numai daca este absolut necesar pentru a descrie experientele relevante de munca. * Trebuie sa fii convins ca folosirea unui limbaj adecvat este extrem de importanta; tu trebuie sa te promovezi unui angajator repede si eficient. Raspunde nevoilor potentialului angajator cu un CV profesional, scris foarte clar. * Foloseste verbe care indica actiunea precum 'a dezvolta', 'a conduce' sau 'a destina' pentru a sublinia realizarile tale. * Nu folosi propozitii declarative precum 'Am dezvoltat ' sau ' Am asistat la '; incearca sa folosesti la minimum pronumele la persoana intaia. * Evita constructiile pasive, precum 'eram responsabil cu managementul'. Este mai puternic si mai eficient sa spui 'Conduceam'. * CV-ul tau este prima impresie pe care o faci asupra angajatorului, si un CV bun depinde nu numai de ceea ce scrii; cum prezinti ceea ce spui este la fel de important. Un CV prezentat intr-un mod necorespunzator va oglindi o imagine neingrijita a personalitatii tale care nu va va aduce nici un beneficiu. O astfel de prezentare ridica pe buna dreptate intrebarea daca esti cu adevarat motivat si nimeni nu doreste sa angajeze pe cineva care trimite un CV plin de greseli si prost prezentat! * Accentueaza ceea ce poti face pentru angajator. Fii foarte exact si clar. Daca-ti doresti mai mult decat un post, realizeaza CV in acord cu ceea ce vrei si cu pozitia vizata. Este important sa-ti amintesti sa introduci doar experienta relevanta pentru acel post vizat. * Nu mentiona date personale precum greutatea si starea civila. Aceasta informatie nu este ceruta de angajator si el s-ar simti mult mai bine daca te vei abtine sa scrii din proprie initiativa aceste informatii.

The sweet spot of a CV is the area selectors tend to pay most attention to: this is typically around the upper middle of the first page, so make sure that this area contains essential information. If you are posting your CV, don't fold it - put it in a full-size A4 envelope so that it doesn't arrive creased.
