Want to work in UAE? Remove these 5 mistakes from your CV – News

Employers need to see details relevant to the job.

With many individuals looking for a job in Dubai, it’s important to be ahead of the curve. One of the ways to do this is to make sure your CV showcases your strengths. It also pays to have a CV that is easy to read and understand. Employers go through profiles of a lot of jobseekers before they even shortlist you. To help you grab attention, make sure you remove these elements – call them mistakes – from your CV.

Your old email address

Ensure you have a simple and professional email address. Nobody wants to see your old email address from high-school or university. Creating a new email address doesn’t take much time.

Short-term jobs

Remember that gig you used to do back in summer? Do away with it. If you were with the company for a brief stint, you won’t really have to say much about your time there. It’s best to use that space for work experiences that count.

Social media handles

Your potential future employer doesn’t need to know about your life’s trajectory. However, adding relevant social media accounts, such as LinkedIn, Behance or your own website will give you bonus points.

Fake info and lies

Not only can it get you jailed in the UAE but faking some parts of your CV shows your lack of professionalism. Always put your best foot forward and highlight skills that you can offer rather than what you can’t.

Personal details

According to Business Insider, including personal details can lead to discrimination. In this day and age, there’s no need to add your marital status, religion, height, weight and nationality. Your birthday also has to go.

Have you knocked these things off your CV? Yes. Now, head on to KT Buzzon to check out the latest job openings across UAE.
