Looking for Job ? Attend the free #CVBanalo workshop by Zigsaw

CV- Your Personal Sales Brochure

 “Your CV must speak loudly and clearly of your value as a potential employee. And the value must be spoken in a few brief seconds, because, in the business world, that’s all the attention a CV will get. The CV takes you only the first few paces toward that new job. It gets your foot in the door, and because you can’t be there to answer questions, it has to stand on its own.”:      –Martin Yate

CV Banalo

When you sit to write a CV, the things that comes to your minds are:

Simple English or Flowery language? Colored paper or white? Times Roman, Calibri or Comic Sans? Just job title or complete description? How long? Achievements since class 2 or just the last 2?………………..

There is so much confusion over what an ideal CV should look like and more important, what it should carry. These details should be stressed as you’ve probably heard the expression ‘First impressions are lasting ones’; your CV is usually your first impression with a potential employer. Your CV has the power and authority to either make or break your chances of being invited to an interview!

Like the first date, they are the first time an employer gets to form an opinion about you – the first impression can make all the difference… The CV is your vital opportunity to present yourself at your best.

 For competitive jobs with many applicants, a selector may only read your CV for one minute before deciding to reject, or to shortlist for detailed consideration. Thus it is important to know how to put the relevant details of your entire life in a page or two.

All this is more difficult done than said. Not everyone is capable and aware of how to write a good CV. Moreover we have very little idea about what the employers want. Thus, in this highly important time for students as well as job seekers, Zigsaw Consultancy is holding a ‘CV Banalo Workshop’ to help you with the skills to write an effective curriculum vitae.

Companies like Fusion, Lexcis and EduWings will give you insights on what the industry expects and then Zigsaw’s professionals will guide you to write an effective CV.

The Zigsaw plan forward for Udaipur

For Zigsaw, we have been a service centric recruitment consultancy but are slowly shifting our focus on the developing a community driven recruitment portal (Check out www.zigzobs.com). The salient features of the current portal include

  1. Claim your skills & self rate yourself on the claimed skills: You can select upto 7 skills in the system & self-rate yourself on these skills. We believe honest self-evaluation from each one would be the single biggest driver of our recruitment portal 2 years hence.
  2. Engage with your friends and rate them on their claimed skills: Like you, your friends would also claim their skills. Once they do that, you would be notified. We are trying to gamify skill ratings & would be including some incentives for sincere ratings very shortly.
  3. Each successful referral (referred friend gets selected) comes with a referral incentive of min 1000 Rs. Now this is a very aggressive step, given that recruitment consultancies in Udaipur have build a market charging from Job seekers. In our business model, we intend to reward the Job seekers who refer their friends. Like I said, we are building a community driven recruitment portal and are optimistic to receive support from the people of Udaipur

Thank you to the awesome people of Udaipur. People who have helped us reach their friends, your college mates. I am positive on getting continued support to reach your neighbor who is looking for a Job Change, the relative who returned from another city, your best buddy from school, the collegue who wants to quit, to reach the lady next door who quit her job after marriage!! Help us reach the lives where we can make a difference. Spread the word. Signing off:

Till the next time, #beZigsawed
