February CV writing workshop

CMHA Employment Project held second workshop on 20th of February, illustrated the importance of CV and how to write it.

CV is the open sesame to your prospective employer, only the outstanding ones can catch the eye of employers among piles of CVs, gaining further interview opportunities.

CV has many templates as well as various way of writing, writing a fabulous CV is not an easy task.

Many of the participants who atttended the workshop haven't realised this before, treating CV writing as merely a simple task to put in relevant information!

People tend to neglect a Cover Letter while presenting their CVs, have no understanding about the importance of a Cover letter.

A Cover letter is a letter that states your target business/employer/address and other information posted with your CV, with a description ofwhere you found the vacancy information, your premium advantage, how you match the job and the compliment to employers.

A Cover letter is important as most recruiters don’t bother to read the CV after a unattractive Cover Letter.

Khim will continue to conduct one workshop every month, we hope the February one have lent you a hand. The workshop in March is about Successful Interview, and I will inform everyone after the date is settled.

二月廿日,華心會「就業支援計劃」舉辦第二回工作坊,講解履歷表之重要性及如何寫好履歷表。
履歷表是求職者與可能性雇主的第一道橋樑,突出顯眼的履歷,才能在堆積如山的眾多履歷表中突穎而出,獲得雇主青睞,後進一歩獲得面試機會。
歷履表有許多不同樣板,亦有許多不同寫法,用甚麼方法,如何寫得完美,其中大有學問!
好些參與此工作坊的服務使用者,在此工作坊後才恍然如此發覺!
寄上履歷表同時,一般人容易忽視的,是求職說明信(cover letter)。不知道履歷表重要,求職說明信又更重要!
求職說明信是你給應聘單位寄上履表...

二月廿日,華心會「就業支援計劃」舉辦第二回工作坊,講解履歷表之重要性及如何寫好履歷表。
履歷表是求職者與可能性雇主的第一道橋樑,突出顯眼的履歷,才能在堆積如山的眾多履歷表中突穎而出,獲得雇主青睞,後進一歩獲得面試機會。
歷履表有許多不同樣板,亦有許多不同寫法,用甚麼方法,如何寫得完美,其中大有學問!
好些參與此工作坊的服務使用者,在此工作坊後才恍然如此發覺!
寄上履歷表同時,一般人容易忽視的,是求職說明信(cover letter)。不知道履歷表重要,求職說明信又更重要!
求職說明信是你給應聘單位寄上履表時,一封標有招聘公司/招聘人/地址等抬頭的信,内容是從哪兒得到招聘信息,自己最大的勢所在,對招聘職位的適合程度,對招聘人的感謝等。
求職說明信非常重要,因為許多老板只看求職說明信,若看了信感覺沒興趣,往往連履歷表看也不看,一并丢到垃圾桶裡!
Khim將儘量每個月辦一次工作坊,希望二月份的這「寫好履歷表」對參與者有其幫助;三月份,準備舉辦的工作坊是「成功面試」,確定日期後將馬上知會大家!
