The curriculum vitae is a very important 'weapon' to get a job, or in an entrepreneur's case, find the best person for the position that suits the business' needs. The surprising thing is that many people go crazy trying to fit in every achievement, and their CV turns out to be more than two pages long.

An entrepreneur by nature, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has shown us that a good CV can be just one page long, without the need to exclude anything.

Musk, who operates companies such as Hyperloop, Tesla, SpaceX, among others, indicated that his company only has job positions "strictly necessary." In addition, he pointed out that managerial positions were "totally unnecessary," since they encouraged and triangulated any corporate decision.

Novoresumé gives us a template of what Elon Musk's CV would look like:


Musk's CV first made its appearance a few years ago, and he assures that "he never needed more than one page."

As The Independent indicates, your resume is about providing more information in a smaller space "giving more for less."

Specifically, the billionaire's résumé has nine items, including skills and competencies, where it lists a few with a percentage graphic, as well as previous positions, their duration, and accomplishments in each of those jobs.

Elon Musk describes himself as a “nano manager,” a micromanager of operations. Your CV should similarly show a very simple format that lists your skills, training and experience. It should also have a correct and minimalist design, which can help give you more options for placement.
