5 Top Tips to make your CV stand out!

  | James Innes

In today's post we will touch upon 5 tips to make your CV stand out more.

1) Maximise readability

It is essential for your CV to be easy for the reader to scan quickly. Separate different sections and insert clear section headings. Avoid long paragraphs; use bullet pointing.

2) Include a professional profile and objective

These sections should summarise and emphasise your key attributes. Your words must flow seamlessly - avoiding cliché.

3) Include 'Achievements' where possible

If you can include such a section it can make an instant and dramatic difference to the power of your CV, enabling you to distinguish yourself from other candidates.

4) Keep your CV concise and to-the-point

Your CV should be informative - but also concise.  In general, two  A4 pages is a maximum. Too many CVs are quite simply too long.

5) Target/Tailor your CV

If possible, tailor your CV according to the specific vacancy to which you are applying.  A carefully targeted CV can easily mean the difference between success and failure.

Combining the above with what we discussed in the previous post on why your CV might be getting dismissed in 30 Seconds should put you on the right path to get the job you deserve.
