How to: Improve your CV

If you’re looking around for a new job the first thing to do is to spruce up your CV.

What is a CV?

A CV, also known as a curriculum vitae, is an overview of your education, achievements, work history and qualifications. This is the first thing that recruiters will see therefore, it needs to make a good impression. A poorly written CV could mean that you won’t even be considered for an interview.

What should you include in your CV?

There is no structure to a CV and every CV will be different however, there is some key information that should be included.

  • Contact details (ensure you have double checked these and that they are correct)
  • A personal statement (include a brief summary about yourself and what you are looking for)
  • Previous work experience (include a description of your job role)
  • Education
  • Qualifications
  • References (occasionally available upon request)

Follow our top tips to make your CV stand out from the crowd.

  1. Make your CV easy to read

Don’t make your CV too long, a standard CV should be between 2-3 pages long. Use headings to separate your work history from your qualifications. Make them stand out by making them bold and underlined. Also, ensure that the font is readable, clear and professional. This will make the CV appear professional and reader-friendly for the recruiter.


  1. Break up texts, don’t do big paragraphs

Ensure you don’t have big paragraphs. Big blocks of text will make the important information hard to locate. Recruiters have a big pile of CVs to go through daily so a CV with big paragraphs that is not easy to read is most likely to go in the no pile. Keep the text brief however, informative.


  1. Add contact details and double check they are correct!

There have been many occasions where our consultants have read a CV and thought the candidate would be perfect for the job role however, their contact details were incorrect on the CV meaning that we are unable to interview them. Ensure that your details are correct so that you don’t miss out on any job opportunities.


  1. Check spelling and grammar

Ensure that you proofread your CV. Imagine spending all that time trying to perfect your CV to then send it off with a typo and other inaccuracies.


  1. Tailor your CV to the job role you are applying for

Tailoring your CV to the job role means that you can include and highlight the relevant qualifications, skillset and achievements for the job role. You can also then go into more detail on the previous job roles that are similar to the one you are applying for.


What not to include

  • Don’t include personal information (nationality, gender and marital status) – Recruiters are not allowed to make a decision based upon this information. Therefore, this does not need including in your CV. Some companies may have certain requirements depending on the contracts (for example, age) however, this will most likely be on the job advert or the recruiter will ask you.


  • Personal hobbies - Some companies will tell you that you should include hobbies however, others tell you to stay away from this. Most people will include the same hobbies (travelling, reading and socialising) however, this will not add any value to your CV. If you’re hobbies relate to the job role or show your potential of taking on challenges that is a bonus. If you’re hobbies include anything that will make you stand out from the crowd (such as charity work) the include it!

How to: Prepare for an Interview

Whether you are new to job hunting or you’ve been in the game for a while ‘winging it’ should never be an option.

Before the interview

Firstly, you need to make sure you have researched into the company. You need to ensure that you understand the job and how your working background would make a great fit for the position they are recruiting for. From doing this you’ll not only get the knowledge but also the confidence. This means no unexpected surprises during the interview process.

A few key things to cover when researching into the company:

  • Research into your job role
  • Find the address if the interview is in person
  • Think about the questions the interviewer might ask and the answers to them
  • Prepare some questions for the end of the interview

Looking into the job role will give you a full understanding of what the role entails. You’ll also know exactly what the employer is looking for in a candidate. A lack of research will also show that you are not interested.

The day before the interview

  • If the interview is face to face, ensure you know where you are going
  • Gather all important documentation (ID, up to date CV, relevant certificates, examples of work and relevant qualifications)
  • Review the research you previously completed on the company
  • Prepare some questions to ask at the end of the interview
  • Choose a suitable outfit for the interview
  • Get a good night’s sleep

By sorting out all the above in advance you will be more prepared and less stressed on the day of the interview.

The day of the interview

Make sure you don’t panic and stay calm. This will help you talk coherently.

If your interview is face to face, ensure that you plan on arriving 15 minutes before your scheduled interview time. If you are going to be late for any reason contact the interviewer as early as possible.

If the interview is over the phone, ensure that you are ready for the interview at the agreed time. Be sure to have your CV with you so that when you are asked about your job history you can easily read off that without forgetting about any little details. Make sure your phone is fully charged so it will not run out of battery during the phone call.
