Our 5 Resume/CV Tips for aspiring MSLs  

 1 – Adapt your CV to each MSL role you apply for. This is a very common mistake, too many candidates use the same CV for every role they apply for.

 2 - Have a 1/2-page executive summary. It should highlight your key skills, competencies and knowledge that are RELEVANT to THIS MSL role.

 3- Make sure you answer the job description requirements. This is another classic mistake for aspiring MSLs who focus on their past achievements (usually not relevant to the MSL role) versus focusing on the specific job requirements.

 4 - Length: keep it concise and relevant. The goal of a resume/CV is not to get you a job but to get you to the interview stage. How much does a recruiter/hiring manager need to know to invite you for quick phone call screening?

 5- Make your CV visually attractive and easy to read so that recruiters/hiring managers can quickly find the relevant information. No one wants to go through pages and pages of “information”.
