Steps to a great CV

  • Keep it short Your CV should be two pages or under. Being terse and to-the-point shows that you value time and can think analytically on the job.
  • Format & spell-check Your CV does not have to be fancy, but a badly formatted CV with spelling errors is a strict No-No.
  • Do not over or underplay your experience Do not write about things you do not have hands on experience in and vice versa. Both can trip you up during your interview.
  • Keep it professional Do not use colors, fonts, words, etc. which are not professional. Even if your CV is made for a creative role keep the flamboyance restricted to your portfolio.
  • Keep it relevant Redo your career goals, job objectives, etc. for every job or skip it. Always skip a declaration at the end. If it is coming from your inbox its declaration enough.
