10 Things To Avoid While Writing Your CV If You Want To Get Your Perfect Job

A resume is the only self-marketing tool you have that you can use to land your dream job. It is the first impression of yourself that gives the recruiters a general idea about your personality, knowledge, qualifications and many other things. It is through your CV that the panel of recruiters decides whether or not to call you for an interview.

That is why utmost care should be given while preparing a CV. But many times, simply due to small mistakes, your resume may get rejected or the recruiters may hesitate to call you for the interview. So here are the things that you should avoid while updating your resume:

1. Don’t make your CV more than 2 pages long

2. Don’t use a lot of colours while writing
