Take your time researching my CV examples.
Many people are out there looking for a new job or career. A job search is be difficult, even when the economy turns around and job are created, there will be lots of people applying for the all those vacancies . Here's a useful resource for you to help you effectively market yourself, above the competition, offline and online.
Common Mistakes Applicants make when Writing CVs
With more people competing for jobs than ever before
in recent memory, constructing a punchy, concise and exciting CV is
the crucial difference between securing an interview and being
thoughtlessly dismissed into the pile of ‘no-nos’.
For the hundreds of thousands of us searching for new jobs (Reed is a great place to start your job search), better opportunities and careers. We don’t realise that the thing holding us back might not have anything to do with our experience – it’s actually down to how we present it.
You want to get inside the head of the company you’re applying to work for – and the particular HR professional who’ll be sifting through your (and many others’) CV. They want to see a clear and targeted CV at this specific job, not a just a general collection of records that get sent around to everyone. Make sure you highlight the skills and experiences which directly respond to the job description. Show motivation and drive in your layout and targeting of information.
Length and style
The first mistake that is commonly made when creating a CV is to put everything and anything you’ve ever done. Anything over 2 pages is already treading on very thin ice – if you make it to 3 pages you can be guaranteed that your potential employer has stopped reading.
More than that, it smacks of a lack of confidence and focus – it seems like you didn’t know what to include or prioritise. The same goes for content within your CV – again, time and being succinct are your key factors here: you need to give the essentials in a few words, so swap sentences for summarising bullet points which clearly mark out your qualities and skills picked up at each job.
Order and layout
What goes on that essential front page? Unless you are applying for a graduate job, or have little experience, your education and training can go on the second page of your CV. It’s often better to start your CV with a summary of your expertise (don’t forget also to describe yourself in the header of your CV, i.e. John Smith, Recruitment Consultant) alongside your contact details.
Finally, don’t be afraid to get a friend or HR expert to read the document and give you any extra tips and advice – this can be really useful coming from someone who knows you personally and also has professional understanding of the field.
Does your CV measure up to the job that you aspire to?
