Keep it short and clear

CV to a maximum of two pages long.
Do not go into detail about jobs you held 10+
years previously unless they are relevant to

adequate spacing so that your previous roles
are easy to spot and digest by the reader.
Avoid jargon or abbreviations that would not
be recognisable to the employer.
Tailor your CV

of your CV to the role that you are applying
Tailor your CV to match the role that you are
applying for by ensuring the key requirements
meets the reader's eye. Unless the jobs that
you are applying for are identical, you do not
have to use the same CV every time. Keep two
or three versions.
If you are applying for jobs that have
slightly different tasks or responsibilities
remember that relevance is the key! Therefore,
adapt these accordingly.
A prospective employer will take on average 30
seconds to quickly glance over your CV before
making the decision to read on further.
Therefore ensure that you start your CV with
an ‘opening profile’. This is what an employer
will see and read first. It should be a short
summary of your experience, skills and
qualities, and be relevant to what the
employer is looking for.
Put your employment history under a heading.
This should be in date order, starting with
the most recent position first. If you have
any gap in your employment history, ensure
that you explain the reason(s).
Briefly outline your main duties within each
role. Concentrate more on highlighting your
achievements and results. Ensure you state
what you have actually achieved with hard
evidence i.e. “Generated an average of £1,000
pound profit per week” rather than “a proven
tract record in sales”.
Put any qualifications and training attended
under a separate section heading after the
‘Employment History’ section.
Send a covering letter
Always send a covering letter with your CV,
unless you are instructed specifically not to
do so. Ensure that you highlight within your
letter a minimum of three pieces of
information from you CV that are most relevant
to the position that you are applying for.
Finally, check that your CV is accurate
Always ensure that you conduct a spelling and
Always ‘proof read’ your CV and if possible,
get someone else to also read it.
