The Beauty Of A Good Headline!


There Are Massive Benefits To Having A Good Well Comprised Headline To Your CV Placement!

If you have spent any time looking at existing members CVs & Resumes on the searchable cv database….you’ll have been struck by the CVs which seem altogether more prevalent and ‘visible’ – you will have perhaps noted the elements which caught your attention!

I bet it was the great headline like say:

“Legal Counsel – Department Of Justice Track Record – Washington DC – Looking For Upgrade”

“Company Accountant – Consolidated Balance Sheet – Various Industries – FMCG Preferred – Any Middle East

Seasoned members will have worked out the preferred pattern of composition opted for and that which makes the biggest bang for the restricted size of any headline.

Clearly you should in a short sentence summarise your key offerings and details – thus making any prospective Employer recognise in an instant a sniff of skills sets they might be looking for.

Inasmuch – hooking your CV Searcher in a heart beat should be your primary aim – not least and lets face it having to trawl through thousands of CVs and Resumes can be a pretty darn dry experience and not for the feint hearted….

Thus it is really worth taking some time to compose your headline so it is striking. We suggest the following key elements:

  1. Jobs Title Splash – A distinct and easily recognisable Jobs Title which most accurately encapsulates your Skill Sets – say Barista or District Attorney
  2. Level of experience – including the time you have spent working at this level – say 12 years in specialist Coffee emporium
  3. Targeted Location – informing about any specific geographical location you are able to take your next career move in
  4. Why Look For New Work – summarising the reasons for your new jobs search.

Taking into account these elements, it should be pretty simple to make a splash headline which is both attractive and informative.

The simpler you make the job of the CV Searcher the better it serves your purpose of promoting your Skills Sets.

Good Luck

Help My Stats Are Not Increasing!

All CVs & Resumes are visible either in a Full version or a truncated version. Please note:

  1. Truncated version gets viewed by anyone – but for quality purposes is NOT added to to your Visitor Stats
  2. Full version CV can only be viewed by signed up members of the cv database – this is added to your Visitors’ Stats
  3. If you have signed up for a Public CV Database account – each visit to view your full CV listing will be added to your Visitor Stats

CV Placers can be assured that just because your stats are not increasing as you might expect – does not mean that it is not being viewed.

You are likely to get better visitor numbers if you have a Public Account – but then you cede your anonymity. The choice is yours!

Data Integrity (1)

Well there is a very straightforward answer and explanation to this understandable question….

  1. The only sensitive information that we would ask from you is in paying for Premium Services and all this is taken care of by the Payment Options providers like Paypal or Worldpay or Google Checkout etc…
  2. Our usual rules requires that you add as much information as you can about your skills and experience to enable the CV Searchers [Employers, Recruiters & HR Managers] to form a considered judgement about you being a good prospect for the position you are searching for. Principally, you will then elect to make public as much or as little of your personal information as you can – without adding sensitive information which may be usurped by Spammers and others.
    1. It’s up to you to ensure discretion!
  3. It would be plain daft to to add details of your Bank Account and similar for public consumption! cv database will never ask for your bank details – simple!
  4. It might also be practical to add your full address, but maybe having your general address might be more discreet – say comprising of your region and country and not the door number etc?
  5. Electing for a Private Listing would the best bet should you seek ultimate discretion and in this way you are able to filter out inquiries who may not be the best fit for your candidature.
  6. It should be pretty straightforward to explain your skills sets without divulging key details.
  7. We never sell on our database of contacts.

In other words its entirely up to you how much or little you divulge on your CV Database listing.

Likely as not, the only information which may be considered sensitive are your Contact Details. But, once more it is entirely your choice about which method of contact you give the reader on CV Database.

Look the point of this service is to promote your cause, the ability for an interested Employer or Headhunter to contact you quickly, is pretty critical. We do however, get the persisting sensitivities about your physical address and telephone number.

So, here are a few tips which may minimize any anxiety you may have:

  • Opt for a Private Listing on the CV Database – when you sign up
  • Do not write any of your sensitive content on your profile and rely on the internal messaging on the cv database network – thereby reserving the gift of filtering inquiries
  • Only give out your mobile/cellphone telephone number for public use – most Smartphones now have a tool for blocking unwanted callers
  • do not add too many specific content cues which may give away who you are easily like a series of employers – you can then opt to give access to your Full CV when you require or only to signed up members.

In a nutshell, the information published on cv database is as sensitive as you make it.

Anti SPAM Measures

The open cv database project has a no tolerance spam policy.

The open cv database project’s customer support actively monitors large import lists and emails going to a large number of contacts. Any customer found to be using The open cv database project for spam will be immediately cut-off from use of the product. If you know of or suspect any violators, please notify us immediately at abuse[@]cvdatabase.org .

Every email contains a mandatory unsubscribe link – those individuals who try to remove this link will be warned that they are doing so. If the link is removed or de-activated in any way, The open cv database project will terminate the customer’s account.

What is Spam?
Spam is unsolicited email also known as UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email). By sending email to only to those who have requested to receive it, you are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.

What constitutes a Preexisting business relationship?
The recipient of your email has made a purchase, requested information, responded to a questionnaire or a survey, or had offline contact with you.

What constitutes consent?
The recipient of your email has been clearly and fully notified of the collection and use of his email address and has consented prior to such collection and use. This is often called informed consent.

Isn’t there a law against sending Spam?
The anti-spam law went into effect on January 1st, 2004 and preempts all state laws. While this new law will not stop spam, it does make most spam illegal and ultimately less attractive to spammers. The law is specific about requirements to send commercial email and empowers the federal government to enforce the law. The penalties can include a fine and/or imprisonment for up to 5 years.

How The open cv database project protects you from sending spam
The open cv database project is a permission-based email-marketing tool that follows the strictest permission-based philosophies:

Communication – Your The open cv database project registration page already states why you are collecting the site visitor’s email address, how you plan to use their address, and that you are following the embedded privacy policy. Additionally, by accepting our license agreement you have agreed to use only permission-based lists and never to sell or rent your lists.

Verification – The open cv database project automatically sends all of your new contacts an email confirming their interest in receiving emails from you. Additionally, if your contact changes his or her interests or unsubscribes, The open cv database project automatically sends an email confirmation.

Unsubscribe – Every email generated from The open cv database project contains an unsubscribe link which allows your contacts to opt-out of future emails and automatically updates your contact lists to avoid the chance of sending unwanted emails to visitors who have unsubscribed.

Identification – Your email header information is correct because it is pre-set for you by The open cv database project. Your email’s “From” address is verified and already accurately identifies you as the sender.

Contact Information – all of your emails are pre-filled with your contact information including your physical address.

How to protect yourself from Spam: Take the Spam Test

  • Are you importing a purchased list of ANY kind?
  • Are you sending to non-specific addresses such as:
  • sales@domain.com, business@domain.com, webmaster@domain.com, info@domain.com, or other general addresses.
  • Are you sending to distribution lists or mailing lists which send indirectly to a variety of email addresses?
  • Are you mailing to anyone who has not explicitly agreed to join your mailing list?
  • Have you falsified your originating address or transmission path information?
  • Have you used a third party email address or domain name without their permission?
  • Does your email’s subject line contain false or misleading information?
  • Does your email fail to provide a working link to unsubscribe?
  • Are you failing to process any unsubscribe requests that come to you via a reply to your email within 10 days or the request?

If you have answered YES to ANY of the above questions you will likely be labelled a SPAMMER. For more information visit The Coalition Against Unsolicited Email (www.cauce.org) or contact The open cv database project Customer Support (support@cvdatabase.org )

Avoiding Scammers

What is a scammer and how do I protect myself from them?

A scammer is a fake profile using the website for commercial purposes. Illegal advertisement, redirection to other websites where you have to pay, asking for credit card details or money – these are scammers’ most frequent activities. As our members join CVdatabase.org for communication with genuine people, not fake profiles extorting their money, our Customer Service constantly restricts the activity of scammers’ profiles.

If you suspect a member of being a scammer, use the “Report Abuse ” button in the chat window, member’s profile or inbox to report them.

We also don’t recommend that you provide your personal details (like email address or phone number) to members you’ve only just started talking to. We can protect you from scammers on the website, but we can’t do that if you continue to have conversations by phone, email or instant messenger

My CV Is Never Published!

We want to build a high quality service which reflects well on all other CV Placers. This means that we operate minimum standards on the quality of how CVs are presented – as well as ensuring that the content is suitable!

Quite apart from the usual Spammers and Trolling – it never ceases to surprise us – how many folks don’t seem to care about what they are doing at a basic level, never mind attempting to present a qualitatively attractive pitch to Employers and Recruiters who are looking for the Ideal Jobs Candidates.

The upshot being – many CVs sent to us for publication are poor quality.

When a CV Moderator sends you an email which says:

  • Your CV contains inappropriate content – you need to present your information in an improved fashion and we let you decide what improvements should be made.
  •  Your CV contains sensitive information – if you are a “Private Member” and have your CV only available to signed up CV Placers – you may not add your contact details in the visible content of your CV Listing.

It’s not about judging your presentation – it’s about being equitable to all other members listed on the cv database.

My CV Is Never Published!

We want to build a high quality service which reflects well on all other CV Placers. This means that we operate minimum standards on the quality of how CVs are presented – as well as ensuring that the content is suitable!

Quite apart from the usual Spammers and Trolling – it never ceases to surprise us – how many folks don’t seem to care about what they are doing at a basic level, never mind attempting to present a qualitatively attractive pitch to Employers and Recruiters who are looking for the Ideal Jobs Candidates.

The upshot being – many CVs sent to us for publication are poor quality.

When a CV Moderator sends you an email which says:

  • Your CV contains inappropriate content – you need to present your information in an improved fashion and we let you decide what improvements should be made.
  •  Your CV contains sensitive information – if you are a “Private Member” and have your CV only available to signed up CV Placers – you may not add your contact details in the visible content of your CV Listing.

It’s not about judging your presentation – it’s about being equitable to all other members listed on the cv database.
