It’s important to have an error free CV for your job applications so they aren’t immediately disregarded by prospective employers.
Armstrong Appointments has produced a useful infographic which summarises the main mistakes to avoid. In particular pay attention to the small details, try to review your CV as if you were the recruiter – what would you expect to see? What would you be disappointed with?
In particular make sure you:
– have accurate spelling and grammar, and ask a trusted friend to help you to check.
– keep it short and to the point.
– avoid too many clichés as the readers simply ‘switch off’ and don’t understand the skills you are trying to communicate.
