Get the basics right

There are many way’s to write a cv but there are some common sections you should always include: personal and contact information, education and qualifications, work experience, relevant skills to the job in question, own interests, achievements or hobbies, and some references. Remember there is no right or wrong to complete a CV.

No more than 2 Pages

A good Cv is clear, short and straight to the point. Avoid unnecessary waffling you don’t need a lot of pages because employers receive plenty of CV’s and chances are they wont read all the pages. Most will make a quick judgement of section’s, so make no more than 2 pages.

Include references

Reference’s help your CV greatly,having your past employer vouch for your recent skills and experience can give the employer a positive insight on what type of a person you are.

Structure the CV to the role

When you’re applying for a specific job make sure to understand the role and tailor your CV towards the role you’re applying for. Making generic cv will not work.

Understand the job description

Read in detail from start to finish the full job description. You should highlight and take note of all the areas you are weak and strong at. This helps you formulate your CV towards the job role.

 Keep your CV up-to-date

To avoid missing valuable information about yourself, you should revisit your CV once in a while and updated any important information or delete any other information that’s no longer available.
