CV Writing Tips

   
 

 

  • Tailor your CV to the role you are applying for, highlighting your strengths in chosen areas.
  • If you are a recent Graduate or this is your first job give brief details of any previous work experience, but give greater detail of any course modules and dissertations that may be relevant to your new position and employer.
  • List your most recent / highest level of education and any professional memberships. Listing all GCSE’s / A Levels is not essential as clients are often more interested in your industry experience.
  • Be positive – don’t dwell on bad experiences, and if possible turn them into a positive.
  • Keep profiles concise and to the point, for example “you are looking for challenging, diverse opportunity whereby you can use your excellent technical and project management skills.”
  • Don’t leave any gaps – ensure that all time is accounted for, even if there have been prolonged periods of travelling / study / unemployment.
  • Include any supplementary business skills like languages, First Aid Training and if you have a driving licence as these may be an added attraction to a potential employer.
  • List all your contact details so that we are able to get hold of you at short notice.

 

It is a common myth that a CV should be kept to two pages. This however is not the case. Your CV is your first chance to sell yourself, so make sure you include all significant experience and major projects you have worked on that make you more attractive to a potential employer. It needs to be accurate, detailed and succinct…but don’t waffle. A good way of doing this is by the use of bullet points.
