Writing a professional Curriculum Vitae (CV) that stands out from the rest is no easy task! Research suggests that Recruiters only spend an average of six seconds reviewing a resume – that is a very small window to make a lasting impression.

A badly written or unprofessional CV can hinder you from landing your dream job! Below are some key tips to remember when writing your CV.

Do:
  • Include your contact details i.e. contact number AND email address
  • Tailor your CV to the specific role you are applying for
  • Use a professional CV format / template with legible font
  • Write a personal statement which summarises your skills and strengths
Don’t:
  • Send a CV with any spelling or grammar mistakes on it – make sure you proofread you CV before sending it out
  • Use multiple colours or pictures on your CV as this can be distracting
  • Have a CV that is longer than 2-3 pages (keep it concise)
  • Use abbreviations or jargon not specific to the role
