CV TIPS

Interview Preparation
  • Long enough to cover the subject; short enough to remain interesting. A good CV is long enough to include your relevant particulars – no longer. In fact, three well spaced pages in good sized print is plenty – four at the most.
  • Make it easy for employers to read. Create a clear, formal summary of your education, qualifications and experience. Include:
    • Name, address, telephone number and e-mail.
    • Education and training in reverse chronological order.
    • Your work history, also in reverse order. Make sure you can account for any gaps in your CV.
  • If you don’t have access to a computer, get your CV done professionally.
  • Be accurate. Don’t exaggerate or overstate your achievements. Also, do not put down a skill unless you have it mastered.
  • Write well. Language is a basic communication skill – grammar, spelling and style are important. Keep your sentences short and structures simple.
  • Include some hobbies and interests.
  • Proof Read your CV. Then get someone else to read it to make sure everything is clear.

References:

  • If you are including references your option is to list them at the end of your CV. Or to simply say: “References available on request”.
  • Ask permission of all referees so that people are prepared if they are called.
