Get your CV ship-shape for the New Year

There is no such thing as the perfect CV, but there are a few tips and tricks to make sure that yours is the best it can be.

Use action words.  It makes a much more interesting read when the sentences in your lists of experience and achievements start with words like Managed, Boosted, Enhanced, or Improved.  It’s not always easy, but try not to start every sentence with ‘I’.

Employers DO look for mistakes on CVs.  Faced with an enormous pile of applications employers will use the excuse of your avoidable errors to dismiss your application.  ALWAYS use a spellchecker and, if possible, ask someone else to double-check what you've written.
