5 top tips for CV writing success:

1. Tailor your CV

It's important to tailor each CV to the job role and company you're applying for. 

2. Keep it up-to-date

Update your CV with any new skills or qualifications.

3. Keep it short 

Your CV should be no more than one or two sides of A4 - you will lose the interest of the prospective employer if it's too long.

4. Proofread

Make sure you double check your CV and look out for any errors. Ask someone else to glance over your CV to look out for any mistakes you might have missed.

5. Sending your CV online?

Save in a PDF format to be sure employers can open it, with your name in the document name so that it can be easily identified.
