CV Top Tips

  • A CV is identical to an American Resume
  • Your CV should be no longer than 2 pages - be concise
  • Include a summary of your education if you graduated more than a few years ago
  • Include a personal statement as an attention grabber
  • The order should go: Name + Contact details, education, personal statement, experience in reverse chronological order followed finally by a sentence or two about your personal interests or hobbies if you like.
  • For each role you've had, think of your proudest achievement in that role and try and quantify it - i.e. how much money did you save/make your company/department? How much time did you save them? (try and also translate this into money) How many customers did you make happier? (try and translate this into a monetary amount too)
  • Try and show a consistent pattern throughout your experience statements to give the employer a clear picture of who you are and what you can bring
  • Be more concise with experience statements which happened further in the past. Elaborate more on your recent experiences.
  • Try and relate your experiences to the job you are applying for - often this can mean having 2 or 3 CVs prepared for different types of roles
