CV Advice

When you apply for any new job the first introduction to any employer will be your CV. It is therefore important that you spend time producing an effective and eye catching CV. Here are some tips to help you make your
CV impress your future employer.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS
It is important that your CV has been checked for mistakes and grammatical errors. If you are uncertain, use the computer’s spell check and get other people to read through the CV before submission.

KEEP IT SHORT
As a general rule your CV should be kept to one page, but remember that if your skills and experience need two pages you should go ahead and produce a CV that covers your full work experience.

BE HONEST
The truth is important as a CV should be an honest and a true reflection of your career.

SELL YOURSELF
Career achievements and accomplishments go a long way. Don’t simply list your jobs along with your responsibilities. Mention any awards and any time you have covered for a Manager or other member of your team.

TAILOR YOUR CV
When writing your CV, specifically target the job you are pursuing. You should tailor your CV to include any relevant experience and skills that could be an asset in the role.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
It is best to keep personal information to a minimum. You new employer will only be interested in your specific skills and career to date
