Writing a CV

Your curriculum vitae is the single most important weapon in your armoury when it comes to job hunting.

A prospective employer will often make a snap judgement the second they read it and even the most qualified people on the planet can find themselves rejected if the resume fails to come up to scratch. So how can you give yours the edge? Here are a few hints and tips:

  • Avoid making it too fancy and complicated. You only have about five seconds to grab their attention – if it is too clever and unreadable it will be overlooked.
  • Don’t try to make jokes and never make negative comments about previous employers.
  • There are no set rules governing the length of your CV – this will be decided on your career history, education and achievements. If possible try to keep it to two pages but if this looks too cramped then feel free to spread it over three.
  • Everyone has a different theory when it comes to CV design. Don’t get too bogged down over this, just make sure everything is clearly marked.
  • Include your career progression, education and achievements prominently so your prospective employer doesn’t have to search.
  • A basic format would be to start off with your contact details clearly listed at the top of the page. Follow this with a profile of yourself which should include an outline of your skills, experience and immediate career goals. You can then follow with your career history - in reverse chronological order with brief descriptions of your responsibilities and achievements. Don’t forget to include your education, IT/Software skills/knowledge and finally interests/personal details and references.
  • Read and re-read your CV, and then ask a friend or family member to read it too. Make sure that there are no spelling or grammatical errors – many CVs are rejected outright because of mistakes or errors.
  • It might sound obvious, but be truthful. Never try to fudge dates and jobs to hide periods of unemployment. The most basic of checks will expose your deceit and ruin any chance of getting a job.
