Remember that your CV is the only document that the employer/agency has to form an opinion as to whether you are a suitable candidate for the position. It should be easy to read and remember this is the only tool at your disposal to make an impression.
It is essential that you make sure that everything in your CV is in chronological order. Use dates and make sure they are correct and can easily be verified.
Make absolutely sure that you check and proofread the CV. If you are unsure ask a friend or family member to help to make sure your CV is factual and correct. Make sure that there are no typing errors and ensure the grammar is correct.
Only when hobbies, extramural activities, etc., are relevant to the position that you apply for should you include it in the CV. This will only frustrate the reader if not relevant.
Make sure that you highlight every job title, when you held the job and at what company and clearly explain what your duties and responsibilities were. Also clearly state the name of the company that you worked for during this period in your career. It may help to state the location and briefly what the core business of the company is.
Make sure that your CV is tailored to the job you’re applying for. Make sure that you take the time to prepare the CV for the purpose of securing the position that you are applying for. It would be “career changing” if you secure the position so.
Take the time to prepare and ensure that you put forward a professional and honest profile for consideration.
