Dave Marshall's Blog:
Landing a PHP job Part 3 Curriculum Vitae
December 16, 2008 @ 09:36:17

Dave Marshall has posted part three of his series looking at how to land that perfect PHP job. In this part he focuses on the resume/curriculum vitae - often times your first impression to a potential employer.

In part two of this series, I discussed the technical know how I think will help get you your next PHP job. This part will discuss writing your Curriculum Vitae(CV, resume, etc.). There are a lot of contrasting opinions on this subject, I'll make a few points, give you some further reading and you can adapt the opinions in to a top notch CV of your own. I'm no major expert and most of the recruitment I have been involved in has been for trainee developers, but these positions attract a high number of CVs, so I've seen a fair few.

He includes a few helpful hints like "Your CV does not get you a job", "Don't stuff your CV with keywords/acronyms" and some tips on formatting and proofreading.
