Don’t lessen the impact of the content of your CV by not paying attention to the basic rules – here’s a reminder:
- No more than two pages.
- Less is more – make sure it is not text dense, and allow plenty of white space around the text to make it easy to read.
- Use bullet points and headings to give it a clear structure.
- No spelling or grammatical errors – check, check and check again.
Having a CV that stands out will increase your confidence, create the right mindset for your job search, give you pride in what you’ve achieved and should land you an interview.
