When applying for a job, perfecting your CV is one of the most important steps to success.
Your CV is often the first thing prospective employers or recruiters will see, and if they have been spending all day looking through hundreds of CVs you need to make your CV stand out from the crowd.To do this, there are two aspects to consider, the design of the CV and the content within the CV.
When designing your CV ensure to keep the layout as clear and concise as possible, and try to keep to just two pages. Nowadays, it is so much easier to make your CV visually effective by utilising colour schemes, illustrations and other design elements. If you can make your CV more than just a word document, it will be sure to help you stand out from the crowd. Just remember to tailor the design to your audience – if you’re applying for a creative role then the more imaginative the better, but if you’re applying to a company with more formal and traditional practices stick to just adding in some subtle flairs.
It can be hard to know where to start when it comes to actually writing your CV, but the key thing to remember is that you want to show off your talents and achievements and relate these back to the role you are applying for. Key points to include on your CV are a brief ‘about me’ section and highlights of your previous experience, your major skill set, and how this relates to the roles you are interested in applying for.
One of the difficulties people have when writing their CV is boasting about themselves. Boasting is something that is a generally frowned upon in everyday life, but when applying for a job it is crucial to shine a light on your achievements and talents. After all, if you don’t know one else will.
