The real-world Guide for writing a killer CV
 
 

What else should you avoid when writing your CV?

  • Don’t title your CV as Curriculum Vitae or similar as potential employers can clearly see what it is. Put your name and address, as this makes it easier for them to see whose CV they are reading.

  • Don’t use a narrative style. Using bullet points makes it easier for the reader to see the main points, meaning that your CV will convey more.

  • Don’t attach a photo unless asked as you don’t want to be judged on what you look like.

  • Don’t mention your reference’s names unless asked. This information is normally only relevant after an offer has been made.

  • Don’t give a reason for leaving your last job as this doesn’t pose a direct bearing on the job you are applying for.

  • Don’t forget to put a 4-5 line summary at the top of your CV. This can heighten your chances as many recruiters don’t have time to read through the entire thing to get an idea of how capable someone is.

  • Don’t forget to update your CV every time you have a new achievement.
