Your Curriculum Viate or Resume is your sales tool. This is what you use to sell yourself to any prospective employer. It is the first impression that the organisation gets of you when you apply for a job so it's vitally important that it is well laid out and professional.

Here are some tips:

  • Keep it short (no more than 3 pages).
  • Include information about yourself and what you have achieved.
  • Provide examples of what you are good at (what you are competent at) especially relating to the job that you are applying to
  • Do not leave any gaps in your employment, if you have a gap for example if you took time off to travel, then add this into your CV. Gaps in a CV make the employer wonder what you were doing during this time.
  • Tailor your application for each business that you apply to, do not send out a standard application to every employer. A covering letter is very useful for this.
  • Personalise the covering letter to the organisation that you are applying to.
  • Make sure that your CV is neat and has a clean front cover, it should not be crumpled or torn.
  • Do not send in unsolicited CV's to companies, you will not be doing yourself a favour and your CV will probably not be considered for any particular position.
