“It’s essential that you get it right first time”

Your CV is the important first impression you will have to ‘sell’ yourself to a future employer.

Therefore it is essential that you get it right first time.

There are many opinions within the recruitment world that your CV must be designed/structured in a certain way.The only thing that a recruiter wants to see is fact! As long as your CV is factual, accurate and informative you are half way there.

Here are some CV Writing golden rules:

– Spelling and grammar must be accurate
– CV should be word processed and not hand written
– No colour, photos or graphics
– Recent and up to date
– Contact details (sounds odd to say, but you would be surprised how many people forget)

How do I write a CV myself?

To help you in preparing your CV with pre-formatted templates, you could use Microsoft Word. Open a new page – File – New – Templates – select ‘Resume’.
