WRS Tech are here to help you get your CV into shape. It is in our interest to help you, so below are 6 top tips on how to create or improve your CV.
1. Keep it simple
Unless the position you are applying for requires a portfolio of work, keep your CV simple. The most important part of your CV should be emphasized such as work experience, education and qualifications using subtle formatting and colours. Make sure your CV is consistent throughout using the same fonts and spacing.
2. Market yourself
Avoid using a boring list of jobs and duties and instead highlight your achievements within certain roles and projects. Discuss the obstacles in these positions and how you overcame them with examples, this is your chance to shine and stand out from the other 50 CVs the company has received. Explain to your potential employer why you would bring value to the company, set out your skills and qualities.
3. Be honest
Always be honest in your CV – you will soon be found out otherwise. Keep your CV current and relevant. If you are studying a course note down your expected completion date and grade your experience for example beginner, intermediate, experienced.
Send your CV from a formal email address usually firstname.lastname@example.org. Avoid using your current work email address or worse the one you set up when you were 15 years old. You should include your contact details on your CV and if appropriate a link to one of your social media profiles.
5. Always proof read
We cannot stress enough how important it is to proof read your CV before emailing it to your potential employer. Spelling and grammatical errors has a 99% chance of being tossed into the bin, so take your time. Once you have read and re-read your CV ask a relative or friend to read it once again.
