As Dynamics Recruitment experts, here at Conspicuous we are often asked how to write a perfect Dynamics CV. A CV that is eye-catching, holds and yields the relevant information and yet shows a degree of individuality.
I would advise that a CV is your sales tool, your initial interview with the client. It is worth having 2 people in mind when preparing your cv, firstly the recruiting Manager, this may be the MD, Technical Director or a team leader; secondly have in mind the PA, the gatekeeper who has to reduce the pile of candidates from 10 to 5.
With this in mind you will need to have key-words, for example Dynamics NAV Consultant or Dynamics NAV developer, at the forefront so if the client is looking for a NAV Consultant or Developer they are 100% sure you will fit the bill.
Once you have started writing with these two people in mind think of the CV as a script with a beginning, middle and end. The majority of employers I work with are looking for Commercial Knowledge with either Dynamics AX or Dynamics NAV and so on the first page and ideally the first half of the first page I would recommend at the very least giving an overview of your technical knowledge. The middle part of the cv is to flesh out the skills mentioned in the initial summary and the end is a little about you. I know of candidates who have been given a job because of their personality and the hobbies they have had.
The CV is your pre-interview sales tool and as such it is always key to check for any spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Glaring problems are very rarely tolerated, no matter how good your skills are.
