Your CV is a hugely important part of applying to any role. A good CV can get you noticed, whilst a bad CV could mean your application doesn't get a second look.
Whilst we don't have a dedicated section on CV advice, we can give you some tips. The best thing to do is read online about CV layouts and also be sure to ask your school or university careers staff.
Our top tips are:
- Emphasize your strengths and skills, this is your opportunity to impress
- Tailor your personal statement to each job you are applying for. Keep it short and to the point (3 or 4 lines). This is your opportunity to really grab their attention and make them want to find out more about what makes you a great candidate.
- Make sure to include jobs and experience relevant to the position you are applying for.
- Ensure to demonstrate how you will use your strengths and skills to excel within the role you are applying for.
- Keep your CV short and easy for your prospective employer to read over, ideally no more than two A4 pages.
- Ensure that there are no spelling and punctuation errors. Try get someone to proof read your CV before sending it off.
- Be specific on the skills you have to offer.
- Ensure to include what personal qualities you can bring that will make you an asset to the employer.
Your cover letter is your opportunity to introduce yourself and explain why you are applying for the role. Make sure you use this to show the prospective employer that you have researched the company and understand what the role entails. Showcase how your skillset matches the specifications laid out within the job description (and if applicable, requirements), and ensure that you keep your cover letter clear and concise.
