CV Writing - Top Tips

  • Make sure your CV is tailored to the job you are applying for
  • Match your personal qualities to capture the specific attributes required for the job
  • Emphasis key areas in your employment history relevant to the job you are applying for
  • Make mention to other skills, qualifications or passions you have that you can bring to the job
  • Ensure your document is clearly presented and easy to follow 
  • Ideally keep your CV to a maximum of 2 pages

Most importantly, use the following format/headings for your CV to make sure you don't miss anything out.

  • Personal Details – full name, address, date of birth, marital status, contact number and email
  • Educational History (If relevant - depending on your age)
  • Employment History – start with current and work backwards.
  • Core Skills – for example confident with Microsoft Office applications, or specifically PowerPoint or Excel, ability to speak a 2nd language
  • Additional Qualification or achievements (not directly related to the role for which you are applying but none the less relevant, showcasing transferable skills)
  • Hobbies and Interests
  • Referees details (or available upon request)
