Comoto funny friday: “Twatif” we were restricted to 140 characters…. CV Twitter

“Twatif” we were restricted to 140 characters…. CV Twitter

CV Twitter: What if you were restricted by 140 character sentences in real life, then you would  constantly being forced to stop in the middle of a word or sentence before being able to complete what you were trying to say.

The  people at FromBogotaWithLove have made a hilarious video to demonstrate the consequences. It is just super, well for the faint hearted it should be mentioned that there is some explicit language being used in this video.

Have a Funny Friday and nice weekend, and until next week we hope for the best.

Du kæmper for at beskytte dine data så pas på dine private data – men dit password er dårligt!

Hvor mange passwords har du ? Pas på dine private data!

pas på dine dataDet ser ud til verden kan deles i to – dem som har 1 password til alt og dem der har 3 passwords. Den sidste gruppe – som faktisk omfattede mig – har et kort for hurtigt og nem adgang, en mellemting og mere sikker for de mere private logins og et tredie kompliceret password til bankkonti og andet vigtigt! Husk – pas på dine private data!

Hvordan kan jeg påstå dette – jo desværre har flere af de seneste store hacks af passwords på Sony og Gawker vist at en masse personer, som var på begge systemer brugte det samme password  – og husk at ingen af de to systemer brugte krypterede passwords –
så personer som arbejdede på disse og lignende systemer kunne se disse passwords. Det skulle være et narturligt krav at passwords er krypterede (på Comoto er dit password krypteret og vi kan ikke se det – vi passer på din privathed).

Hvoor stærkt er dit password ?

pas på dine dataEt stærkt password kunne være 2hCP7quTEufK – det er qwerty12345 ikke. At lave et sådant passwords er ikke nemt, og jeg bruger selv Roboform til at generere og huske mine passwords (jeg bruger Roboform passwordsoftware fordi den håndterer både IE Explorer og  Firefox og på både Mac og Windows samt på telefon og tablet). Hvis du ikke kan lide eller ikke ønsker at benytte passwordsoftware så brug logiske kombinationer sammen med et højt antal karakterer – for eksempel kombinationen af en svært password som 2hCP7qu**** ved at ændre de sidste 4 karakterer med noget, som beskriver den aktuelle side eller anvendelsen – 2hCP7qu**** bliver så 2hCP7qucomo på Comoto.

Du kan teste styrken af dit password her.

Du tænker måske – hvorfor er et password vigtigt på en CV applikation – først og fremmest fordi det er dine data og dine private oplysninger – og har du nogensinde tænkt på hvad der ville ske, hvis en ukendt begyndte at bruge dine data og dit CV bare for at gøre skade på dig – ansøgte et job, ansøgte et job ved din nuværende ansætters værste konkurent …. jeg vil overlade det til dig selv at tænke videre – eller brug tiden til at få dig den rette password strategi.

To create your first Comoto CV, signup for free and just add your data (or use one of the many easy import features), pick one of our special designed templates, preview your CV and finally export to your favourite format (.DOC – .PDF – .PNG) or publish it in a Web Profile (Public/Private). Now you are ready to have full control of your CV.

Target CV to the job you want – and get it! (UK tekst)

Target CV to the job you want – and get it!

Your CV is probably the most important part of your application to get the job of your dreams. The cover letter will be the place where you convince the recruiter/headhunter/company to read on, and read your entire CV.

A very good idea will be to target every job application with a tailor-made target CV, if you want the job of your dreams, the employer should also read a “dream of a CV”.

The basic principle of your CV is to target it to the job:

  • Be sure to cover the most important job skills, qualifications, and experience in your CV.
  • Be certain that most parts of your CV relates to the job you apply for.
  • Use the same skills, experience, and qualifications description as in the job ad.
  • Ensure that your previous experience is clearly and relevant to the job application.

This is a lot easier to do when using Comoto, you can have several CV in the system and specialize them to the current application.

You have the basic material available from your basic CV (maybe your LinkedIn profile), and then you should just adapt that material to the wishes to you dream job.

An Outline of the basics in a CV is seen below:

Professional Summary

The prof. summary is the part where you describe your overall motivation. Here you should describe that the current job would fit into your career choice. This is should show the employer that this job is the next step on your career ladder.

Skills

Skills are mostly seen as keywords in a job add; they are essential criteria’s that you have to have to fill this position. It is not a question if you have them all, most people don’t or just barely, but you must include all the required skills as much as possible.

11 steps to a successful CV (UK tekst)

11 steps to a successful CV

Your CV is like a showroom; it should display your qualification to recruiter or head-hunters as they skim your CV. How do you make them choose your CV? And how do the recruiters / head-hunters turn a pile of CV into just a few CV’s, including yours?

Follow these eleven simple tips to ensure your CV is among the few left when the recruiter goes back to his customer and says “I just found the perfect match!”

1. Find the type of CV wanted

The first thing you should do is to find out what form and style the company wants for the CV or what form and style is normally used in your line of work. Is it a two-pager, is it chronological? If you don’t know, then just call the recruiter and he/she will happily guide you.

2. Keep it concise

Your CV should be short and to the point, leave out unnecessary filling. Recruiters don’t want to spend a lot of time on reviewing a long CV – if you send them an encyclopaedic drilldown of your life to date, they won’t find the information they want. Keep it short and to the point and save the details for the interview.

3. Target your CV to the job

Take the time necessary to adapt your CV to each position you apply for. Get some background information on company and use the keywords in the job ad to find out which skills you should use and which you should leave out.

4. Personal statement

Tie your experience and work history to the vacant position so that the recruiter / head-hunter can see the connection between why he should choose you. This is best done with a brief personal statement to be sure the recruiter / head-hunter sees the connection.

5. Leave out gaps

Recruiters’ don’t like gaps – if they spot a gap they will either dig deeper to find out what is this al about (more work for them) or they will just go on to the next in the pile of interesting CV’s. If you have a gap, make a positive thing out of it, give them extra experience or another twist on the gap.

6. CV must be up-to-date

Be sure that your CV is always up-to-date, especially if it is an online CV it must always be up-to-date. Regardless of whether you’re actively job seeking, every time you gain some experience or otherwise have information for your CV, make the changes right away.

7. No mistakes and misspellings in your CV

Don’t let the recruiter / head-hunter dismiss your CV just because you made a mistake or misspelled something. Many recruiters / head-hunters see these types of mistakes as severe. They say “If you can’t even spell right or made stupid mistakes, you probably haven’t even read the CV after you wrote it.” Use a spellchecker on the text and have someone you trust, proofread it to get a second opinion.

8. Only the truth and nothing but the truth

Never ever tell a lie in your CV as many recruiters / head-hunter use references and their network to check the facts of your CV. If you tell a lie and it is discovered afterwards it is a reason to dismiss you and nobody wants that. Many times any inconsistencies are also discovered in the job by a simple Google search or at the interview and there it will be probed if they find any “lies”.

9. Remember numbers and facts

If you can – it is always a good idea to back up your achievements with numbers. Writing your work experience and achievements, don’t just tell the recruiter you increased profit; show them how much: EBIT increased 78% over 2 years, with a growth rate of sales on 30% over the same period.

10. Layout / design matters

Use a CV template that is in line with your profile. Marketing people can make something very chick and creative, but please if you are an accountant please choose a CV template that signals the right things. It all depends on the sector and what is normal, don’t use the design to make you standout in a negative manner.

11. Remember to use sector specific keywords

Today CV’s are many times online profiles, or CV’s that will be put into a recruiter / head-hunter internal IT systems for indexing and searching capabilities. These systems make use of keywords to search for, just like Google like specific keywords recruiters do so to. Make the keywords 100% aligned with the vacant position and also have some extra in there that can be the extra something to make you stand out from the crowd.
