CV Writing Tips

Here's a few tips for maximising your chances of getting noticed by prospective employers:

Keep it short! Make sure your CV is no longer than 2 pages. Longer CVs tend to be the first to be rejected by many busy employers. If your CV has to be longer, then make sure all your critical infomation is on page 1.
Keep it simple! Employers will generally be uninterested in your best 100 metres time at school unless it was a national record! If in doubt, leave it out.
Structure - Write your CV in a logical order. Here's a suggested layout:

  1. Name
  2. All contact details
  3. Personal details (eg. car, date of birth, marital status etc)
  4. Employment history (in reverse chronological order, most recent job first,give the location, key responsibilities and achievements for each position)
  5. Education
  6. Hobbies and Interests

Your CV should tantalise an employer, leaving them wanting to know more.
Keep your CV up to date.
Keep your CV on a floppy disk
Write your CV using a standard word processor package, eg. MS Word
