4 Great Ways To Improve Your CV

Does your CV truly represent who you are, what you’ve done and your expertise? How does your CV compare to others applying for the same role? These are difficult questions to answer, but here are some key pointers to consider when looking at your CV.

#1 Tailor Your CV

Pick apart the job description and make your CV applicable. Look for keywords within the job description, and include these..

#2 Clarify Your Skills

Provide examples to expand on your listed skills. This can provide greater insight into your background outside of your employment history, and shows in more detail what you can bring to the table. This will also make your CV sound less generic, for example, instead of just saying ‘Organised’, ‘Self Motivated’ or ‘Team player’, give one-line examples to back these up.

#3 Presentation Is Key

Does your CV read well? Are there blinding spelling errors or misplaced commas? Is it visually appealing, does it look the part? The best way to find the answers to these questions is by asking someone else.

#4 Be Human

Applying for technical positions could easily come across dry on a CV, so making tone of voice approachable and to the point, without being too robotic, will go miles in making it stand out when being read over by recruiters.
