Curriculum Vitae (CV) Writing Tips
Your Curriculum Vitae (CV) has three principal jobs:
- To advertise your skills and experience in an effective enough way to open the door for a conversation or an interview with prospective employers
- To enable you to get noticed by electronic recruitment tools (job boards)
- To be used in an interview as a guide, enabling you to highlight the most relevant information to the interviewer
To achieve these things your CV should display your skills and expertise in a logical, easy to read manner using key words and phases that will be picked up by both prospective employers and electronic search tools.
Here we provide some tips on both the content and layout of your CV based on the best and most effective CVs of the thousands that Amida sees every day.
