How to write a good CV is the first challenge you face when you start looking for a job.
How do describe yourself, which experience you should add, and which skills are better to highlight?
You might feel overwhelmed by this before you start, so here are some tips on how to start writing your Resume.
Tailoring your resume for every application means adding and reviewing the parts of your CV that can be matched to the job you are applying to.
This can really make a difference in the outcome, so here is how to get started.
First: you can use specific words that can help you get the recruiters' attention.

Most important: how do we choose these words?
CNBC suggests following these steps:

Impactful verb: past tense verbs to show your impact and use words like: “accomplished, improved, trained, mentored, manager…”
Number and percentage: they will empathize your accomplishment and impact. They will make it concrete and evaluable
