How to write an amazing CV

Advice
12th December 2017

Many of you know how to write a CV, however, whether you’re writing your first CV or reviewing it for your next career, it’s good to be reminded of what makes a great CV.

Tailor your CV

Make sure you tailor your CV for every job you apply for. Read the job description and required skill set and ensure you list your key skills and experience

Keep it concise

Ideally, your CV should be no longer than two pages of A4. Rather than writing long paragraphs about time spent in a specific role, bullet-point key bits of information. Address all of the key skills required in the job description but remember, your CV is only the first step.

Don’t leave gaps

Leaving gaps in your career history just makes prospective employers wonder what you were up to during that time. List any gaps in your career with a suitable explanation – whether it was a career break or travelling.

Remove the errors

Always check your CV for basic spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Get a friend or relative to proof-read your CV as well.

Tell the truth

Always tell the truth about your skills and experience. If you don’t, you’ll be caught out at some point – whether it’s during the interview process or, far worse, when you’ve actually got the job.
