CV Advice

Creating the perfect CV is a vital first step in securing your dream job. Employers spend just 8 seconds on average looking at your CV. For more information on creating the perfect CV, take a look at our blog.

A CV should begin with a profile paragraph: 
- Two sentences on what you have done
- Two sentences on what you are doing
- Two sentences on where you want to go

After the profile paragraph, you should begin your career history:
- This should be achievement based
- Company name, job title, and employment periods
- A few responsibilities should be listed and then a few achievements
- Achievements should be target driven and use numerical examples wherever possible

After career history, education should follow next:
Training courses are not always necessary to include
- GCSEs do not need to be listed individually, just how many you have completed and the grade range - same goes for A Levels!
- Finally, to finish a CV, it’s nice to see some interests listed; this gives the employer an idea of what you are like as an individual
