Are you failure ! Why do you need a failure CV?

Your resume may carefully create your high points, but a CV of failures reminds you that success is not a straight line.


  •  Make a copy of your resume.  Go through positions you’ve held, school, and make lists of things you wish had happened differently, things that didn’t pan out the way you’re intended.
  • Take time to consider your shortcomings. Your failure CV is just for you. Be honest and specific.
  • After you have listed every failure you can think of, put a positive spin on each of your failures. For instance, if you wished you had taken Computer science and not communications, the positive spin would be my communication gave me a foundation in public relations.


  • It will help you identify your weakness. Interviewers don’t want to hear that your biggest weakness is your “dedication to work”
  • It will give you more examples to understand how things panned out
  • It gives you a different perspective, re-looking at your history helps you remember things you’ve forgotten.
  • I t makes you relook at failure as an opportunity to learn
