The basics of crafting your CV for a digital marketing position
So you’re about to finish your digital marketing course, and thinking about what the future holds for you. Whatever you plan to do, 90% chances are you’ll require a CV, especially if you plan to begin working full time.
Creating a CV for digital marketing internship or job seems like a big step where a lot can go wrong, and it is. However, following a few basic steps ensures that you’ll be left with the perfect CV in no time, whether you’re a fresher or looking to redo your CV. Here is everything you should know before you start actively making your CV.
What areas should you include in the CV?
The first question you’ll most probably have is ‘what actually do I add to my Resume?’ Here’s what most recruiters want to see in your CV:
- Personal Information
This should be clearly highlighted, for obvious reasons. The recruiter should know how to get in touch with you, especially when its peak hiring season. Mention your name, date of birth, email id, phone number, and address.
Mention the core degrees you’ve obtained, whether it’s 10th, 12th, Bachelors, Masters, or more. Whether you choose to mention your grades is entirely up to you, but make sure to be consistent throughout, and either mention your grade for all your qualifications, or don’t mention them for any.
These can be your achievements in school or work life. A line or two per achievement, mentioning the year is good enough.
- Work Experience
If you’ve worked in a number of places before, mention the jobs that best match the industry you’re trying for now. However, you can also choose to mention all of them. For the work that best matches your current industry, make sure to mention in bullet points what you achieved and your main job description for clarity.
We’re sure you have a number of skills, but make sure to only include relevant digital marketing skills. Look for in-depth skills of 3-4 words rather than a single word. Your skills are where you can really sell yourself, so think wisely about what you write in this section
All work and no play renders anyone’s senses dull, so your recruiter will want to know what you do in your free time. Include 3-4 hobbies in your digital marketing specialist resume.

Make sure to keep these points in mind when creating your resume.
