Hacks to make Your CV 10 Times Stronger
You’re in an interview for your dream job, and the employer asks you to introduce yourself. Easy, right? Wait, you haven’t heard the catch, yet. You only have seven seconds to do so. You’re put on the spot. You’re nervous. You’re sweating. What do you say? What do you focus on? Should you start with your work experience…DING DING DING, time’s up!

That’s why you should write and structure your CV in a certain way to make it stand out. It may seem like a difficult task to do.
