A: THE two most important principles for successful CV writing are ‘keep it simple’ and ‘they won’t know it, if you don’t show it’. You need to get your skills and achievements across quickly so the language used should be easy to read and the points you make, brief.
It isn’t always the case that your CV has to be less than one page, if it means omitting vital information that differentiates you from other candidates. Use bullet points to outline responsibilities and successes or provide more details about recent roles, rather than all of your previous employment.
Your CV must be relevant.Think about the role – are there skills you have developed in another industry that can help you perform this role? If so, it is crucial to include these. Demonstrating experience in other sectors can help.
