always make sure to use a clear font. No one wants to receive a CV in comic sans! You want it to look professional and sleek and most importantly readable.
Make sure your name is at the top. As obvious as that may seem, you would be surprised how many people forget to make sure their name has pride of place on their CV.
You should always place your most recent work experience and skills at the top of your CV. It is no use putting what you did during your summer holidays in 2012 as your first role. Your potential employer needs to see what is relevant to them immediately.
Keep It Snappy
No one wants to read your life story. Keep your job descriptions, skills and accomplishments to short punchy sentences. Make it easy and interesting to read.
Keep It Short
On that note, keep your CV short. You don’t need to list every single job you had going back as far as you can remember. A two page CV is enough and going back 5 years or your last 5 relevant roles is plenty. If they need more they will ask for more.
It is tough out there to get noticed. By following our simple guidelines, you should be able to make your CV really stand out from the crowd and get noticed.
