Hi Zaiba, please connect with us via call/message. However, I will mention a brief summary of the answer you can give.
Of course, I’d be happy to help you with your query regarding what to answer when asked about your performed duties and responsibilities on a CV. When addressing this question on your CV, consider the following tips:
Be Specific: Clearly outline your roles and responsibilities in a specific manner. Instead of using vague terms, provide concrete examples of tasks and projects you’ve worked on.
Use Action Verbs: Start each bullet point with a strong action verb to describe your duties. For example, “Managed,” “Led,” “Implemented,” “Coordinated,” etc. This makes your responsibilities more engaging and impactful.
Quantify Achievements: Whenever possible, quantify your achievements. For instance, “Increased sales by 20%,” “Reduced project completion time by 2 weeks,” or “Managed a team of 10 employees.”
Prioritize Relevance: Tailor your duties and responsibilities to the job you’re applying for. Highlight experiences that are most relevant to the position you’re seeking.
Highlight Achievements: Apart from day-to-day tasks, emphasize any accomplishments, awards, or significant contributions you’ve made in your previous roles.
Show Progression: If you’ve had multiple roles within the same organization, demonstrate your career progression by outlining how your responsibilities evolved over time.
Focus on Skills: Highlight the skills you developed and utilized in each role. This can help employers understand how your experiences have prepared you for the position.
Keep It Concise: While it’s important to provide detail, avoid overwhelming your CV with lengthy descriptions. Use bullet points and concise language to make it easy for employers to skim.
Use Keywords: Incorporate keywords and phrases from the job description into your responsibilities where relevant. This can enhance your CV’s visibility in applicant tracking systems.
Proofread: Ensure that your CV is free of typos and grammatical errors. Attention to detail in your CV reflects positively on your professionalism.
Remember that your CV should not only convey what you’ve done but also how your experiences have prepared you for the role you’re applying for. Customizing your CV for each job application and showcasing your relevant experiences can significantly improve your chances of success.
