5 Tips To Writing A Winning CV

A curriculum vitae is one of the most important documents when seeking employment. Most employers often look at the CV only to get details of the job seeker, so it is of utmost importance to pay close attention when writing your CV to make sure you get that call back from your possible employer.

Below are some of the tips you can follow to write a winning CV

  1. Use a template

By following a CV template you are not restricting the way in which you can express yourself, but you will find that your CV becomes easier to read and covers all the most important aspects of your work history.

2. Keep it simple

Your choice of font and layout are key to making sure a would-be employer carries on reading your CV. Simple formats work best.

3. Update

Firing off an old CV will look unprofessional, so make sure that yours is regularly updated to meet the requirements of any jobs you see advertised.

4. Stand Out

Your CV should demonstrate your unique blend of skills and experience. Make sure you include examples of commercial success, problem resolution or management achievements.

5. Don‘t be generic

Work out who or which industry sector your CV is destined for and tailor it to highlight the right aspects of your experience for them.
