Your CV is your sales pitch.
Often this is the first piece of information a potential employer receives about you. If it is not professionally collated and presented, you become just another file on a pile of paper.
Your CV needs to STAND OUT – you want the reader to nod their head and feel the urge to bring you in immediately.
There are a few key areas which you need to focus on in particular. These are:
- INTRODUCTION PARAGRAPH: We recommend a customised intro paragraph that needs to be short and to the point, but it must be the reason they keep reading further. Speak to why you are the best person for the job!
- LAYOUT: Make it easy to read and remember, employers and recruitment agencies receive hundreds of CVs at a time. Ensure your personal details are listed, then your education followed by your work history. Start with your current position being listed. Be sure to have a start and end date for every position and make sure that there are no gaps in the timeline.
- ACHIEVEMENTS: These are an excellent selling point for each job and will make you stand out.
