Points To Note Before Sending Out Your CV To A Recruiter

Getting a job in this country is hard work, writing a compelling CV is harder. But nothing is impossible! Carefully consider these few points below when drafting your CV.

1. Tailor your CV to the job. Your CV shouldn’t be your life story but should be tailored for the job you’re applying for, focusing on the parts that are important for that particular job.

2. Make your CV clear, neat and tidy. Get somebody to check your spelling and grammar. No-one wants to read a CV that is squashed together and includes too much information. Your CV should be easy to read with space between each section and plenty of white space. Use left-justified text as it’s easiest to read, using black text on good quality white or cream paper.

3. Place the important information up-front. Put experience and education achievements in reverse chronological order. Include experience and interests that might be of use to the employer: IT skills, voluntary work, foreign language competency, driving skills, leisure interests that demonstrate team skills and organization/leadership skills.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SEARCH!!!
