A Different Take On CVs

by Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer

I have a different take on CVs. If anyone asks me for a CV for recruitment, i send them a nice-to-read but up-to-the point document, which focuses on opensource projects. Respected recruiters and esteemed companies in Mauritius of course bin it straight away.

It’s a way to avoid working with people who cannot analyse documents or who set up barriers which prioritize bureaucracy over business needs.

I like to work with people who are simple and close to their objectives. If someone is serious, everything flows smoothly. I got 1000s of usd in few lines of messages, even as short as 3.

As bland as this.

My CV brought me exactly Rs0. My Github on the other side, brought me Rs100k+.

There are sharp people out there who have different ways of meeting their business objectives. Sure, if your aim is to get money via a CV, you’ll optimize for that. At the end of the day, you must decide whether you want to get money or get money via a CV.

CVs are like a game of SEO. If your content is good, you’ll give up playing with the algorithm. The algorithm will find a way to include you.
