CV’s should make a noise about you! Make the Employer sit up in their seat and think I need to interview this person! But that’s not so easy – if you follow the normal format, which lets face it is the professional one, then it can end up looking like a zillion other applications. What you want to jump out is the bit that makes you an individual with skills, ambitions and ideas that match the Employers check-list of desirable attributes. Simple stuff can help you reach your reader.
- Read the job specification/description carefully
- Look for key words that are repeated – then somewhere get those words into your CV
- Remember at all times you must be honest.
- Show that with each year in employment you have gained an experience and skill
- Refresh your personal statement every year – use current terms and language
