Resume Writing/CV Writing Tips

As a professional resume writer/CV writer, I appreciate that it isn’t always easy to write a strong supporting document.  It is difficult to sell yourself, without sounding big-headed and easy to forget important information.  It can be confusing to know what information to include or leave out and you might be unsure as to what length it should be.  So to give you some CV writing help, I have put together a list of resume writing/CV writing tips:


1. Tailor your resume writing/CV writing:

When you apply for a job you should always try to tailor your CV toward the role you are applying for, try using keywords that you have highlighted in the job and person specifications supplied.  This will unfortunately, mean slightly re-writing your CV for each job you wish to apply for, however, it will show your motivation and passion to be successful in your application.


2. Keep your documents short, concise and relevant:

Remember that there are a lot of applicants for only one role, the job market, especially now, is flooded with unemployed people looking for work, some of which are well-educated and well experienced. The employer, therefore, will have lots of CV and cover letters to read and as a result the applicants may all start to merge into one, except those that have stood out for some reason.


3. Make sure your CV is one that stands out from the crowd:

Of course, this doesn’t mean add glitter and perfume and go over the top, but adding a very subtle patterned background to your CV or a photograph of yourself (a head shot…nothing else) can make all the difference in the employer remembering you.


4. A typical CV/resume structure:

Your CV should be factual and informative, 2 pages is more than enough.  Here is a typical CV structure:

Personal Information: Name and contact details.

Personal Statement: A short piece that introduces you, your aspirations and highlighting that you are the ideal candidate to fill the vacancy.

Key Skills: This section is the one you can tailor towards a particular job the most. Note in this section the key skills that you have, in particular the ones that the employer are looking for.

Work Experience Information: Starting with your most recent role, list all the job’s that you have had, your job title, the company you worked for and your key responsibilities.

Qualifications: Starting with your most recent qualification, list all of your achievements, the institute through which you achieved them and the grades that you received.

Other Headings: Other things you might want to include are: IT skills, Languages, Hobbies, Research , Volunteer Work, Publications, Other Training.


5.  Always be honest:

Whenever you are applying for a job, always be truthful, don’t say you have skills or experience that you don’t.  It would be extremely embarrassing if it were found that you elaborated the truth, furthermore even if you got the job, could you actually do it?


6.  Professionally written:

Your CV writing and resume writing should be perfect.  It should be grammatically correct with punctuation marks in the correct places, it must have accurate spelling and it must avoid being too generic (using common phrases like…I am a hard worker).
