CV Advice FACTS ABOUT CV FORMATS

Create a CV that gets results

A successful CV (or Curriculum Vitae) is one that lands you the interview. While CV templates may be quite general, there are definitive strategies to employ when writing a CV to increase your chances of success.

A professional CV must convey the positive difference you will make for each employer you approach. That requires customising your CV template to suit every opportunity that comes your way. By thoroughly researching the company, and by paying attention to key words in the job description, youll a get good sense of the organisation's needs. Use this knowledge to your advantage! Make sure your achievements show how you successfully handled similar situations.

The decision to hire is a buying decision on the part of an employer and your CV is their first impression of you. Present yourself in a thoughtful, straightforward, easy-to-understand way. Look neat and organised. If this is challenging for you, seek design and writing help for a good CV format.
