Level up your job-seeking process with these tips from a CV expert

Level up your job-seeking process with these tips from a CV expert

Countless online and offline guides have been made on succeeding with one’s job-seeking process. Perhaps even more have been made on writing a good CV. Below, we hope to share some novel and interesting insights that you haven’t heard of before or that tackle certain principles from different angles.

Meet CVGuru, Norway’s leading provider of CV writing services

CVGuru is a leading online service that writes CVs and cover letters for its clients. The employees also help clients with other parts of their job hunt, including interview training, career consulting, and setting up their LinkedIn profiles. 

In the numerous articles on their website, they outline some of their best tips on writing a great CV and cover letter. Here are some that we believe you will find particularly useful and interesting. We have divided the tips into two parts: notes on structure, and notes on writing style. 

Notes on CV structure

The structure of your CV matters a lot to the impression it gives recruiters, and how well the information is presented. We mainly want to highlight three points.

Use a CV template

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Lots of really smart and expert people have spent a long time perfecting CV templates that anyone can easily use to fill in the kind of information that any recruiter wants to know about an applicant. 

The formats vary, and the first thing you should do is to peruse many different versions to see what feels like the best template for you. You can start by seeing whether you like any free CV template from CVGuru on this page of theirs: CV mal fra CVGuru (which is in English as well), and there are also lots of other versions out on the internet that you can use.

Make your most relevant qualifications come first

When recruiters look through CVs, they spend only a few seconds skimming through the material, on average. What they’re looking for are the main qualifications that are absolute or preferred qualities for the job. To make sure the recruiter actually sees your most relevant qualifications, you should place them first, for example by putting experiences before education, or vice versa. 

Your CV and cover letter should work in tandem

When writing your cover letter, don’t just repeat what you wrote in your CV; make them work in tandem by, for example, sharing key facts about your job description in your different jobs in the CV, and the most impressive facts about your results and performances in the cover letter. 

Notes on CV writing style

When you have the overall structure right, it’s time to think about your CV writing style, and how you formulate the words and sentences that go into your documents.

Be specific: Write sentences that nobody else can write

If your goal is to lull the recruiter to sleep, the best method would be to write very generally about you being “hard-working, creative, and solution-oriented,” or how you, in your last job, “managed projects and analyzed information.” You can be sure that the recruiter has seen all of this before, and it’s downright boring to read sentences that anyone else can write.

What you instead want to do, is to write sentences that nobody else can write. For example, you can showcase your quality of being hard-working and resourceful by explaining how you worked 12-hour days, 5 days a week, for 2 months, in times of hard deadlines and too many projects to handle. For your work task of managing projects, you can specify it by writing in short and interesting detail about how you oversaw the development of a new technology that would enable astronauts to easily control space shuttle equipment with simple finger movements (one of CVGuru’s clients had actually worked on such a project). 

To really pack a punch, write a compelling story about how you went through some relevant challenges and emerged successful, with newfound skills or qualities that are highly useful in the job you’re applying to. 

Be modest, but honest

Some people are bragging too much when writing their CV; others are downplaying their achievements too much, and aren’t even showcasing their accomplishments truthfully, in fear of sounding too egocentric. A good balance to strike is to be modest, but honest; write truthfully about your achievements, and what value you believe you can add to the company, without unnecessary pomp or pretentious language. 

Write in a way that anyone can understand

You’d be surprised to know that recruiters often know less about a job than you do yourself. A doctor who has specialized in cancer research knows much more about cancer research than a recruiter who only has a general doctor education. The same goes for other fields; the people at the top who are doing the hiring process (including HR teams) often know a lot, but not as much, as you about the relevant jobs you have had in the past. Therefore, you will make a better impression by using simple language that anyone can understand, as opposed to jargon that is highly specific to the processes and responsibilities of your work. 

Armed with these tips, you should be well on your way to writing a CV and cover letter that stands out. A big thanks to CVGuru for supplying the information on their website. 

How to apply things you learn at school to your job

How to apply things you learn at school to your job

What should you do with all the knowledge you’ve gained in school?

Learning is not only about cramming the mind with all sorts of information on all sorts of topics; it’s about gaining an increased understanding of yourself, your skills, and the world. Learning is also about developing your ability to reflect on the information you take in so that you can apply things you learn at school to your job. You can take much of what you learn and apply it in a new context, which will make the knowledge more meaningful to you. Below, we will outline five methods on how to apply things you learn at school to your job. 

Prioritize your time and tasks

Planning your day can make a world of difference to your productivity, not only when you have classes to attend, deadlines to meet, and parties to crash, but also when you’re charged with completing certain projects at work.

The first step is to set out a list of all the tasks that you need to complete on a given day. You can create this list by listing down all the things that you need to do and then prioritize them according to your preference.

Next, start with the task at the top of the list and work your way down.

This will help you stay efficient and focused on one task at a time instead of getting distracted by others that might not be as important as what you are currently working on.

Doing this will also help you finish more tasks in less time, because once one task is finished, it is easier for you to focus on other tasks from there onwards.

Take notes during meetings

Notes are among the most-used tools of effective students, and notes taken during meetings can be a very valuable asset for the company you’re working for as well. It’s often overlooked as unimportant, but it’s the perfect opportunity to listen and learn from those around us. This can lead to better quality meetings, as well as better employee retention rates.

The best way to take notes is with a notebook and pen or laptop and keyboard. You should take notes on what people say, not what you think about them or their position (a blunder many of us are guilty of as we go about our day-to-day lives).

Conferencing tools like Zoom also offer the opportunity for remote participants to take notes which can be very convenient for a distributed workforce.

Work effectively in groups

Group work is one of those terms that make the bellies of many students twist and turn and churn and burn because they have learned to associate negative experiences with it. Recall the free passenger will do as little as possible, relying on the work of others to pull the group through the assignment… or the megalomaniacal, even despotic student who makes themselves the self-pronounced leader of the group – to the hapless dismay and dissent of all the other group members.

Despite the negative connotations that many of us apply to group work, learning to work with others is one of the most critical aspects of a successful career. 

Research shows that it is better for teams to consist of members who are diverse in all personality traits. This ensures that the team has different approaches towards solving problems which leads to more creative solutions than what one person could come up with on their own.

Work effectively in groups

How to apply things you learn from working with school projects

As a student, you often came across new things that you had never seen before. This offered a good opportunity to explore new fields and learn about a lot of new concepts. You can use these skills to do things that you would not have been able to do if you were not in the classroom. 

For example, creating a clear, step-by-step outline of the work that needs to be done and by when, is often a requirement for most academic degrees. This outline then needs to be presented to a tutor who is to accept or deny it, based on its tactical and practical merits. 

Being exposed to such a rigorous process of review is a skill you can bring with you into the workplace when you are given new projects. In simple terms: make your project outline understandable and practical before you show it to your boss. 

Now, think about the one above method that stood out to you the most, and decide on what you will do today to apply it to your work!

How to Write a CV (Curriculum Vitae) in 2021

Handing over a CV

Are you looking for a new job? Perhaps you have stumbled across your dream job? If this is the case, you will need a crackling good CV that makes you stand apart from the crowd. This article will give you a few simple tips on how to write a CV in 2021.

What is a CV?

You use a CV to quickly and concisely communicate the experience and competence you have developed through work, education, courses, and other relevant experience – such as, for example, extracurricular activities and the like. This document gives your employer a good overview of your background, as well as a better understanding of why you’re the most qualified candidate for the position.

The CV should not exceed 2 pages, ideally. Therefore you should write concisely and only include what’s most important. Remember – your CV is a fluid document that should be adapted to the position you’re applying for.

What is the goal of a CV?

The CV is your first handshake with the employer. In just a few seconds, you are asked to communicate your key qualifications – and most important: why you are the perfect candidate for the position.

In fact, research shows that employers spend 7 seconds on average to judge a candidate based on their CV alone and that they often sift through hundreds of CVs in the course of a recruitment process. This makes it crucial that your CV grabs attention from the very first sentence.

THEREFORE, the CV must be structured conscientiously so that your experience and competence are presented as clearly and precisely as possible. A red line must permeate the entire document to connect your work-related and educational experience understandably and intuitively. In other words: It must be clear to the employer why you have made certain choices and what opportunities the business gets as a result of hiring you.

Instead of going into all of the complicated specifics of writing a CV, we will give you the only tip you need to ensure good quality.

The CV Template

The first commandment of writing a strong CV is to use a clear and professional template. The overall goal of the template is this:

  • To give a quick overview of your key competencies.
  • To show that you have relevant experience from work, education, or both.

Note: In some cases, you can be a good candidate despite lacking specific competence or experience. What’s most important here is to quickly explain why you still believe you are a qualified candidate. 

When you’re writing your new CV, it’s important to use a template that makes the document as clear and readable as possible. The internet is overflowing with endless free templates, and it can be difficult to find one which is both professionally made and suits you as a job seeker.


Why should I care to use a template? Isn’t it enough to list my experiences in a simple Word document?

The reason we encourage everyone to use a template for their CV is pretty simple. When your employer sits down in front of their pile of documents, they only spend a few seconds on each CV. In other words, this means that your key qualifications have to be presented as quickly and compellingly as possible, so you don’t just get thrown into the “no-pile” before your employer has even gotten the chance to consider you as a candidate. A template also makes it easier for you to structure the content on your own, and you can highlight the most important parts: the qualifications that will get you the job.

New education reform in norwegian schools

A mom helping her young son with homework on a laptop

In Norwegian schools, great emphasis is placed on the development and keeping up with the times. Because of this, there are new education reforms just about every year, some larger than others. The last reform of a big scope in Norwegian education was in 2006, with the so-called Knowledge Promotion. Before that, in 1994, “Reform 94” decided that all students in Norway should have the right to go to high school. This led to great changes; many educational programs and subjects were completely wiped away, and many others took their place. It’s easy to see that educational reforms can have a big impact on how the school system works.

In this short article, we will look at some of the new education reforms in Norwegian schools, instituted in the year 2020.

Reactions to Covid-19

Back in March 2020, a lot of schools were completely brought to a halt because of the Corona crisis. The national authorities wanted to stop the virus from spreading and thereby found the most sensible course of action to be that of closing the schools. When they started up again in May, new steps were executed by the National Institute of Public Health to keep the virus in check and limit its reach. They made new rules that the local schools were to follow, and which measures they had to take. A key example is to assist youngsters in attaining their education as usual from the safety of their homes when the schools can no longer arrange normal school days.

The government introduced a theoretical model that lets schools and kindergartens know what measures they are required to abide by. This model is based on the colors green, yellow, and red, which symbolize the severity of the situation in any particular place. Green means that the virus is in full or close to full control. Orange means there is a moderate risk of spread. Red means that serious measures must be taken, perhaps even closing the school entirely.

The education reform

Starting in August, a new core curriculum will be introduced in Norwegian schools. It will take the place of the foundational program from 1994. Its main objective is to enable schoolchildren to flourish in the most important years of their development, by having a curriculum dedicated to the right values and principles. It enlists the core values and knowledge that primary schools, up to high schools, should strive to nurture in their students. A central goal of this educational reform, named Subject Renewal, is to create a stronger connection between the overarching curriculum, and the separate specific subjects. The way schools are to achieve this, is by referring back to important parts of the core curriculum in each specific subject.

The specific subject curriculum for primary schools, up through high school, are instituted at the same time as well. It will incorporate both academic schoolings which support research and science, and professional schooling which supports jobs and industries.

According to the plan by the government (, it should take 3 years to incorporate this educational reform in Norwegian schools.

Emphasis on thorough education

A key goal of the change is to make room for a greater part of thorough learning. The students shouldn’t have to rush through a mountain of material but are instead given ample time to learn thoroughly and become curious about the subject. The topics which are already being presented in schools will stay, but they will be redesigned in such a way that better learning can occur. In this way, new subjects are not to be presented until students have understood the current subject properly.

Practical preparations

Steps have been taken to introduce the changes. For example, key objectives are clearly defined, devices for planning have been chosen, and even Facebook groups have been created so that students can talk freely about the subjects there.

One major key business in continued education through practical apprenticeship is, which already have stirred up the whole nation regarding its very new thinking and algorithmic approach to education in Norway.

All in all, the year 2020 introduces fascinating changes to the Norwegian education system, which may or may not end well. The institution of a new core curriculum which is based on values and principles, as well as a focus on linking it to the specific subjects, will be interesting to follow. And we never know; perhaps these reforms will be on par with those of 2006 and 1994?
