Without a doubt, your CV has to be right. In order for you to unlock crucial opportunities, it needs to have an essential blend of seven key elements – name, contact details, profile, expertise and skills, employment, qualifications/affiliations, and hobbies & interests. Get this right and you’re on your way for success.
Your ambitions achieved
Clever CV writing
Incredibly important, this is your key to success. Here you need to think of establishing yourself as a personal brand. What makes you stand out from your competitors? Your brand will evolve as your career does, and it’s vital to ensure you keep your CV compelling, distinctive and relevant.
One of the most important things you need to consider when you’re creating your CV is who’ll be reading it and the type of role you’re applying for. For example, for an architect role, your potential employer will want to see your potential for creativity and flair. Alternatively, a quantity surveyor role will require experience, qualifications and precision.
Beyond a doubt, you can only be fully represented by the information that you give. Make sure there are no gaps in your career history, and don’t hide between ‘gaps’ or unusual circumstances. If your experience isn’t relevant for the role, show how your skills are transferable and beneficial to your potential new employer.
It may be common sense, but it’s well worth remembering that you only have a short amount of time to make a good impression. Potential recruiters may have lots of CVs to review, so yours needs to stand out. Make sure it’s eye catching and informative at the same time. Recruiters definitely don’t want chapter and verse; ideally no longer than two pages.
