However this should not end up being your own autobiography. Follow it up with your career aim. This part should be well written, for this is what most employers will consider. State explicitly why you have decided to fix your aim on your particular choice, make it as attractive and convincing as possible. However keep it short and terse, replete with clarity and determined logic. After you have done that write about your educational track record. Mention your work experiences after that. Compose this part carefully, you can either write it in reverse chronological order, or set up with accordance to their importance. You should go with your instinct on this one. Employers look for confident candidates. Presenting an ordered CV exudes confidence to say the least. If you have any specialist experience like research work or community service, mention them separately. It’s all about highlighting your abilities.
You can always additional information like your involvement in sports or other extra-curricular activities. Employers will be most impressed if you have shown past leadership qualities. If you are knowledgeable in foreign languages mention them. Big MNCs like their employees to be aware of different cultures. These are the basic guidelines one must follow while writing a CV.
