CV WRITING TIPS


Employers are faced with large numbers of CVs for every job they advertise, and their pre-selection process may be as simple as placing them into 3 stacks; “yes” – interview, “no” – reject, and “maybe”.

For your CV to make the “yes” stack, even a cursory glance should reveal you have the skills they are looking for - particularly technology skills. This takes a combination of Style and Substance.

STYLE
  • Use Bold type - simple but immensely effective in highlighting relevant experience

  • Use bullet points - they draw the reader's eye to what you want them to remember

  • Don't be sidetracked - Put your most relevant experience first, it may not be your most recent project, but this is less important to the employer than knowing you have the experience they need.
SUBSTANCE

Experience is everything - Demonstrate relevant skills by linking them to on-the-job experience. Make sure you include detailed information for at least 3 relevant jobs.
  • Title
  • Timescales
  • Sector
  • Number of staff involved
  • Your role
  • Technical, hardware or software skills employed
Following just these simple tips will ensure that your CV assures the employer that you have the right sales skills, knowledge and experience. This greatly increases your chances of being placed in the 'Yes' stack.
