Our CV Writing advice

1. Remember the purpose of a CV

Your CV exists to get you to interview. You should think of it as a   sales pitch with you as the product.   It should display your achievements and skills and convey your drive and determination. It should not be your life story.  So,  highlight  your  strength and  use positive language

2.Be aware of what a recruiter/employer will do with the CV

CV Writing Advice – Most will skim read the  CV  for  30  seconds.  It will then go into a  ‘no’ pile, a ‘borderline’ pile, or a ‘yes ‘pile. Assuming it’s not in the ‘no’ pile, the  CV  will then be read thoroughly. So,  your  CV  has to be instantly appealing  (i.e. relevant and easy to read)  to get through the  ’30-second’ test and compelling enough when reading in-depth to get you to interview.  Be careful not to write things in your  CV  that you aren’t prepared to talk about in the interview.

3.Be aware of what an interviewer will do with the CV

They will try to find out who the person is behind the  CV,  asking questions about your job history and experience, such as:  are you running towards a  new job or running away from an old one?  What opportunities have come your way? Did you take advantage of them? What problems have you faced? How did you overcome them or how did you fail to do so

4.Know exactly what the recruiter wants

Be specific. Which skills is the employer looking for and how well does your experience match those requirements?  Who else could apply and why do you stand out? They are looking for the person who can solve a problem and fit their organization. So, use the same language as them, show you understand the issues they face and demonstrate that you have the skills to address those issue
