- Do not just copy standard CV samples! Your CV should be made by your own and personalised.
- Yours CV must be easy to read, short and attractive.
- A CV should be well laid out and printed on a good quality printer, using A4 white paper.
- Try to use not more than two sheets of paper.
- Do use bold and/or underline print for headings. Consider using 'bullets' to start sub-sections or lists.
- The paragraphs should be emphasised by using enough white space between them. Do not forget to stress the border of the pages, also by using white space.
- Do use the spell-check on your computer.
- You could add a photo of yourself - either scanned in by computer, or stuck on. But make sure it is a good one.
- What you have written may seem simple and obvious to you, but not to an employer! Go through it again and again making it more readable and more understandable!
