5 Common Mistakes to Avoid Job Seekers on Their CV

With Dubai’s highly competitive job market, it can be quite difficult to land your dream job. Adham outlined the five most common mistakes job seekers make on their CV and how to avoid them:

1. Typos and Grammatical Errors: Proofread your CV and run a mandatory spell check before sending it out to prospective employers

2. Mass Mailing You Resume: Address your CV and cover letter to department heads and potential hiring managers, instead of sending a mass e-mail

3. Being Too Wordy: Keep your CV short and simple, avoid keeping it longer than two pages long

4. Being Vague: You need to put real, quantitative tasks and accomplishments on your resume

5. Not Being Yourself: Try not to hide your personality under business jargon and clichés
