Explain the preparation of an effective CV. Why is it important to send a cover letter with the CV?

Here are some essential rules to prepare an effective CV:
  • Make sure you give your contact particulars encompassing your e-mail id, phone number and address.
  • In a CV, a job objective serves the purpose. It is a crisp and concise line at the top of the CV which states your career goal.
  • It is advisable to write a paragraph containing the summary of the entire resume.
  • The work experience section includes the name of the company, designation and its time frame.
  • Educational details with the year of completion must be mentioned accurately. Honors and Awards section includes relevant academic recognitions to add extra zing to the CV.
  • Reference section is not obligatory. If included, it can say "available upon request."

Importance of sending a cover letter with the CV:
  • Some hiring managers only read the covering letter, so if there isn't one you're out;
  • The CV covering letter allows you to express your interest in a precise and targeted way;
  • Recruitment advertisers often ask for some specific information which belongs in the covering letter;
  • You will be seen as (a) lazy or (b) disinterested if you don't send a covering letter;
  • The main advantage of the cover letter is that you can match yourself to the employer's needs;
  • You can demonstrate why you are the strongest candidate as well as gently flattering the receiver.


  1. Objective in CV should be customized, because it makes recruiters to feel that you can satisfy the company requirements.
