Writing a CV

Your CV is possibly one of the most important documents you’ll ever write, so it’s worth putting in the time and effort to craft a well laid out, interesting and relevant CV.

Remember to get the basics right – CV’s littered with spelling errors and grammatical errors are not going to impress.  Make sure it’s accurate and truthful – employers can easily check up on qualifications and references.

Don’t forget the covering letter too – make sure you use it to give the recruiter a reason to read your CV. When your letter and CV land in a potential employer’s inbox or their desk, you have a few precious minutes of their time to grab their attention – make the most of it!
