Writing a great CV

Writing a great CV

V writing can be a daunting prospect when starting your job search,particularly if it has been a long time since you last entered the job market or if you are looking for your first professional role. Your CV, along with your cover letter, is what a potential employer uses to make their first judgement about you.

Knowing how to write a good CV will help you stand out from all the other applicants and reach the interview shortlist. Your CV must demonstrate that you possess most or all the criteria required in the job. Tailor your CV for each position you apply for by expanding on your experience relevant to the job and cutting back the less relevant parts.

Your CV must also get past any initial screening algorithms, or applicant tracking systems (ATS), which identify suitable candidates based on the use of relevant keywords.
