The Purpose of a CV 

A CV shows a potential employer a snap shot of you; it is used to demonstrate your personal skills, experience, qualifications and achievements which will be of benefit to the company and the role. It is not there to show your social habits or detailed life story. Keep it simple, do not leave gaps which could leave the reader guessing what you were up to, if you took time out for example to travel do include this on your CV.


Be YOUnique

Your CV is your first impression on a potential employer. Remember that, when reading your CV, a potential employer is already making decisions about whether or not you will be the right candidate for the role and considering what benefits you can bring to the company. The harsh reality is: your CV is not the only CV on their desk! So this is your chance to make an impact! So remember to stand out! Although there will be a number of candidates being considered for the same role you are applying for, remember that there is only one you. So be YOUnique!!!!
