You can improve your CV in 3 simple steps
As a recruiter, I looked at hundreds of CVs every single week, now as a Professional CV Writer, I still look at CVs every single day.
I can tell you that one thing has stood out to me time and again, a lot of CVs just simply don’t look very good.
Now, a lack of style is not going to cost a great candidate a job, after all it’s the recruiter's job to sift through all the information to decide whether or not a candidate is a good fit for a role, but don't you want to do all you can to make sure your CV gets read?
Do you want your CV to stand out?
If a CV is messy, does not follow a standard format, is difficult to read, and over-crowded, it is simply not easy for the reader to identify the all-important information that they need.
The reality is, a majority of the CVs or resumes that recruitment consultants see look like this.
So if you want your CV to stand out and grab the attention of the reader, you need to make sure it looks smart, neat and professional.
It really is that simple, and it really is that important!
If you are a great fit for a role, don’t hide that fact in a messy CV.
Make sure that your CV is easy to read, make sure your CV is formatted well, and make sure that the information the reader requires from your CV is right in front of them.
So let's talk about three simple ways that you can improve the overall look, and therefore readability of your CV or resume.
