If you have less than 5 years, your CV should be no more than 2 pages. For those with more than five years, it should be 3 to 4 A4 pages. If you follow my advice and only include relevant details, I don’t see why you should have a lengthy CV. Remember what I said about your CV being a marketing tool? Now picture a scenario where Safaricom is promoting one of their products and they send you a lengthy proposal. No matter how much you like the company or the product, you’ll not have the time to go through a lengthy proposal and you won’t buy. That’s why Safaricom comes up with catchy short adverts. Likewise, keep your CV brief and to the point. There are exceptions to the rule and you should always follow an employer’s requirements.
Hi Dan - I'm in Belize for six months and a few of my friends suggested that I blog about my experience living as an ex-pat. I have been a writer professional and personally all my life and think the writing part should be relatively manageable (I keep a very detailed daily journal so can extract from that) but what I don't quite understand is how I actually launch the blog. I'm not a huge Facebook or social media person so not sure if I blog via that means or exactly how to distinguish and promote the blog. Thanks for your advice.
