A CV (Curriculum Vitae) is a written overview of your skills, experience and education. A CV is an essential part of any job search as you will usually be required to submit this during the initial application stage for a job.
Keep it simple and consistent. Your choice of font and layout are key to making sure a would-be employer carries on reading your CV.
Check and check again. Avoid errors at all costs. This means spelling mistakes, dates which conflict with one another and incorrect email address and phone number.
Keep it updated. Sending out an old CV will look unprofessional, so make sure that yours is regularly updated to meet the requirements of any jobs you see advertised.
Don’t Leave Gaps. Gaps in your work history can sometimes deter employers. Give a reason for the gap, it could be just a career break but it clears things up and gets you closer to an interview.
