Preparing Your CV

Your CV is usually the first point of contact you make with your prospective employer; therefore it is vital that you make a good impression.

Decisions can be made in an instant, just by glancing at your C.V. so here are some tips to impress:

Follow these rules when writing your C.V.

  • Keep it short and to the point, but make sure the content is as strong as it can be.
  • Don't write more than two pages.
  • Format your C.V. in a neat and orderly fashion.
  • Education and Employment must be listed with most recent first.
  • Try to make your strong points subtly stand out from the rest of the page.
  • Include necessary contact details so that the employer can easily get in touch with you.
  • Include briefly what you achieved in other roles and how you made that happen.
  • Use constructive wording but don't lie!
  • Don't say that you like to go out drinking (even though it may be true).
  • Include referees you know are prepared to say good things about you. If you can't contact them immediately, write 'References available on request'
