寫CV目的在於爭取面試機會,能入職理想的工作,而非詳細述說人生歷程,所以你寫的CV內容必須明確清準凸顯你的能力,為你打開職場大門。如果你正在為CV內應該包含甚麼、不應該包含甚麼而煩惱,以下是我們的一些建議:

  1. 避免冗長被動的用語,務必使用現在最update的事寫你的履歷,直接表達,並多使用正面積極的動詞。
  2. 避免不實的學歷和工作經驗,在經驗技能方面要實事求是,無人能涉獵各個領域。若你誇大了自己的技能和經驗,你甚至將要在面試時需加以解釋,承擔自己不誠實的後果。
  3. 避免與職業無關的個人興趣活動,你無法預測HR及老闆對了解你的愛好的程度多大,會有何反應,所以最好將其省略,除非它們與該職務有關。

CV內不應使用的字詞 (以下僅列出一些最常見的CV用語的失誤):

Detail oriented (注重細節)

Flexible (靈活)

Motivated (有動力)

Self-motivated (自我激勵的)

Strong work ethic (強勁的職業道德)

在這列表中大部分詞語均為老生常談,不太具實際意義。當然如果這些詞語對你所申請的職位相當重要,那麼你可以使用,但能轉為通過實際情況來深化HR的印象,或使用真實場景來表達你有將其付諸實行,會更有意義。因為HR不僅想知道你有目標有動力,還想看到相關例子你能證明你如何實踐你的特質。

CV內你應使用的字詞

Adaptable (適應力強)

Confident (有自信)

Hard-working (勤奮)

Innovative (創新)

Pro-active (積極主動)

Reliable (可靠)

同樣確保你的特點有所佐證,所以使用形容詞形容自己時,要提及先前經驗和職責,以及你的成就,任何目標或達成了的指標。

你亦可以用以下字詞表達實踐你的特點的形式

Completed (完成)

Formulated (構想)

Implemented (實施)

Managed (管理)

Planned (計劃)

Represented (代表)

然而最重要的是如何運用這些字詞陳述及展示你的技能和經驗,能表現出積極正面的術語措辭。


實際使用例子一

你說:

Responsible for IT maintenance.

但你可以這樣說:

Managed a team of global IT professionals to solve IT problems in priority.

實際使用例子二

你說:

Supervised a testing team on quality assurance.

但你可以這樣說:

Coordinated and led a testing team on quality assurance of electrical and electronic device.
