Tweaking your CV

Your CV is essentially your own personal profile, but it has to include content that’s going to make you stand out from the crowd, yet is clear and concise. If your CV isn’t leading to many enquiries or responses, you may need to make a few adjustments and we’re going to talk you through a couple of options.


One of the first items prospective employers look at is qualifications and these should always be clear from the start. You should make sure your school and university qualifications are listed clearly, because most employers want to see the subjects and the grades before they proceed to take more interest in your application.


Nobody says a CV has to be in black and white, and you can always add splashed of colours to make it a little more pleasing on the eye. Text box outlines, social media icons, profile photos and other small features can add a burst of colour to your document.
