Writing your CV
Your CV is representing you so make sure it gives a good first impression!
The Employer will only allow a very short time for an initial appraisal of each candidate. You might be ideal for the job, but if you do not make a good first impression with your CV you will have lost your opportunity to prove it .
The most common mistake people make when CV writing is to include too much detail so priorise the information. When writing your CV, always remember that ‘less is more’ and make sure that everything is totally relevant.
It is important to remember that your CV is essentially a document for use in a very competitive field. It needs to be laid out in a format which will be pleasing to the eye and impart information in a very clear and concise way.
Your CV must be objective and viewed from the perspective of the reader. You need to demonstrate the skills and competencies you have to offer.
Your CV is all that a prospective employer knows about you so if you are to succeed it is important that you make sure that he can understand exactly what you have to offer. Your CV writing style needs to demonstrate why they should employ you in particular, rather than choosing one of the many other candidates for the job.
