CV Tips

  • A CV must be brief but not too short.  Focus on your most recent roles as these are more than likely relevant to the role you are applying for.
  • Be straight to the point and highlight any recent achievements or awards.
  • If your work experience is limited, describe your education and training first; highlight any relevant work placements. 
  • Explain any breaks in your studies or career, or if you have been temping make sure you make this clear otherwise your CV will look jumpy.
  • Do not make things up or exaggerate your CV; if you do, you are likely to be found out at interview or reference stage.
  • Set out your skills and competences clearly and logically, so that your advantages stand out.
  • Pay attention to details such as spelling, tone and punctuation.
  • Presentation in terms of the layout and font is very important go for something  like Arial, Tahoma or Calibri.
