How to Write the Best CV

In order to get the job you want, you need to present your potential employer with the kind of CV that he or she wants to see.  It is given and take, fifty-fifty – pick your cliche, in other words, they all apply.  You absolutely cannot hope to get ahead in a really good, well-paying position if you a., do not include your curriculum vitae at all, or b. include a badly written, sloppy, disorganized one.  It is simply a fact that you will get a much better response if you write a very well organized curriculum vitae – specifically, one which is chock full of information that is relevant to and supportive of your professional goals and objectives.  And, of course, the information needs to show that you are the best possible person for the job as well.

With all that being said, this article is going to contain some top CV tips, in order to give you the tools you need to write the best possible curriculum vitae It really is not all that difficult.  Like say, you simply have to be extraordinarily organized.  Even if you are not normally given to organization, this is the one time in your life when you need to be – trust, you can give it up right after, if you like!  However, getting the job you want depends on including a well organized curriculum vitae, cover letter, and resume.

The first thing you need to do when writing your CV is to prioritize.  In terms of the job to which you are applying, what are your most relevant work experiences?  How about your academic, volunteer, and research experiences?  Anything which shows that you have the skills and qualifications for the position you are applying for needs to go in your curriculum vitae, it is absolutely vital.

The best CV format will also include a summary of your objectives and qualifications.  However, you still need to try as hard as you can to keep your CV concise.  Unlike your resume, of course, this can be quite a bit longer.  Still, you never want to go overboard.  When you include too much information, you run the risk of wasting your prospective employer’s time.  You see, he or she does want to know about you, your experience, your accomplishments and achievements, and your skills.  However, look at it from his or her point of view – when an employer has a spot to be filled, he or she undoubtedly has to go through a number of job applicants every single day.  We are talking dozens at the very least, and for a sought after position, the numbers are going to be much larger.  So think about it: he or she has to go through a curriculum vitae, a resume, and a cover letter for every applicant.  That takes up a lot of time!  So while you should certainly include all pertinent and important information and history, just try to be as concise as possible.  Lay out the facts, but try not to embellish too awfully much.

Mind you, these are just the basics as they pertain to writing your CV.  There is a wealth of additional information to keep in mind, it all depends on the position to which you are applying.  At its heart, CV writing is something of an art form.  There are a number of strategies, techniques, and formats which can help you, for any job you can possibly imagine.  So keep an eye out here, because odds are we will be covering them at one time or another!

Quantum of Solace

Many people compare the direction the Bond series is taking to the Jason Bourne movies, because the action is stronger, dryer, and more realistic. Many make a quick parallel between the two characters and conclude by saying that now Bond is just a copy of Bourne. The inspiration in the new direction is evident, and yet Bond is not just a copy of Bourne. There is something in Bond’s character that makes him, and the films he appears in, original and exciting. He is a rich, long history, dating all the way back to the sixties, making us look at him as someone we know by heart. And yet for the first time, he seems like an unpredictable character. Never has the super-spy been so human, so understandable, and at the same time so lethal.

Daniel Craig is no stranger to that new Bond fascination. In Casino Royale, his charisma was impressive and offered a new face for 007, one we did not expect. This time, the phase of acceptance of that new face has passed. And it takes only a few minutes to realize that Craig’s appropriation of the character is definitive. The British actor brings more to the character than any actor before him (yes, even Connery). He has strength and charisma for sure, but it does not stop here. Craig elevates Bond to melancholy, to bitterness. Bond, that white hero of the Crown of England, has never been so gray, so tainted with a sense of tragedy.  The last sequence of the film translates this feeling perfectly. Just like this beautiful opera sequence, in the middle of the movie, orchestrated with Maestri by Forster.

I hesitate to say that from this point on, James Bond is complete and ready for steady adventures. Because Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace may have forged a new Bond, but what they (and Daniel Craig) have forged as well is the sense that from now on, you can never know what to expect from James Bond.

Travel tips in Thailand

There are few things you need to know about Thailand before traveling to the country. First, you need to decide how long you are planning to stay in Thailand. For many of us, it’s long distance destination so one week might not be enough to explore and learn about the country. We recommend at least 2 weeks trip there. Then you will have enough time to see different places and maybe have the stomach flu which is quite common for foreigners to have there. The longer you will stay in the country, the more you’ll fall in love with it. There is no such thing as a too long tourism in Thailand.

 

If you are an adventurer you might want to take your backpack and move around without any real plans. Backpacking opens you multiple options and places where you might not be able to go with your suitcase. Don’t hesitate and just do it. Suitcase traveling is a better option when traveling with children and people who do not want to move from one place to another. Moving around might cause stress for some people and if you are one of them, don’t do it.

 

Thailand offers multiple day trips to short distance locations and there are reliable travel kiosks in almost every street. Choose your adventures from there and the travel agency helps you to plan the best trip for you. Trips are not very expensive in there and if you go there today you can go on a trip tomorrow. This is easy and very stress-free.

 

You might need to use local transportations in Thailand. Be prepared and learn advance is my tip for you. Taxis and tuk-tuks might try to take more money first so bargain, bargain, bargain. You can negotiate with almost everything. Thai people or not in a rush, they don’t play with their minutes. So if you have appointed pickup then you might be prepared for waiting few extra minutes. The driver might come an hour late and that’s no big deal for them. So forget your watch at home and prepare to wait. The only thing you should make sure you’re at the airport at the right time. They won’t wait.
