Your CV is an extremely important document as it is a personal reflection on you. It is very easy to make simple mistakes on your CV and this can damage the first impression you make on an employer. Please take a look at our CV tips below:
Always check your spelling and grammar in your CV, mistakes show that you lack attention to detail
Keep the information relevant and professional - don’t ramble.
Tailor your CV for every job that you apply for. Read the job description and required skill set and ensure you list your key skills and experience first
Use bullet points to grab the employers attention
Try to highlight your achievements in each role, e.g. new procedures, increased sales, successful campaigns or time-saving activities.
Keep it concise. CVs should be no more than 2 A4 pages long
Don't leave gaps - List any gaps in your career with a suitable explanation, for example, travelling / career break
Always tell the truth; most companies will check the facts you’ve stated like qualifications and previous employment history
Always ensure your contact details are correct on your CV so employers can get hold of you.
