Creating a professional and eye-catching CV is one of the most important tasks when applying for a job.
Your CV is the employer’s first impression of you, which is why it is so important that it stands out from the rest.
However, it is not only a matter of ensuring your CV stands out – the content on your CV is just important and is required to be:
- Grammatically correct
- Contains the correct punctuation
- Uses important key words and phrases
- Include all work experience and work history (with the start and end dates)
- All qualifications and the dates they were received
- Skills you have that are beneficial to the job role
Include hobbies and interests – allow the employer the opportunity to get to know you
When writing a CV, you want to put enough information on there to answer most, if not all the employer’s questions, while not writing so much information, that it exceeds 2 pages.
