CV building and Interview phases:

In a thousand of horses running in the field, one Pegasus outshines every other. A well build CV and a good pitched interview can be the key to open the golden door.

A one pager CV should talk about:

  • What is your past academic record?

  • What projects you have completed?

  • How effectively you have concluded your academics?

  • What responsibilities you have taken upon?

  • Which kind of events you have managed until now?

  • How effectively you can lead a team?

  • What curiosity you have geared up, have you ever tried to learn new courses?

  • How have you nurtured your hobbies? Did you ever try to hon your skills in your interest field?

In a word, CV tells recruiters what promises you can give to them.

Next task for recruiters is to know how much committed you are to those promises, so they have a little chat with you. The hardest and most crucial part of your months long job hunts, thousand of draft CVs dumped into dustbin, all the academics you have studied until now and all the nights you have worked finally pays off in those twenty minutes.


Before final Interview, you should checklist:

  • About yourself.

  • What company is doing? History, news, and insights about company.

  • Basic knowledge, preferably deeper insights too, of the industry related to your company.

  • Why should they hire you? What makes you so unique?

  • Your visions for company.

  • General awareness.

Interview preparation and CV building is deciding factor, and biggest hurdle that makes you struggle between you and your company. It is very subjective. Top companies have their process so tough, confusing, and competitive that many seek professional help to ace the interviews and preparations.
