Link Blog | October 23, 2020

Getting your CV right is so important, it is your chance to show off yourself and your skills. Writing a CV can be tough for some people and for most employers they spend just a few seconds scanning each CV before sticking it in the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ pile.

Need some help on how to get started? Call us NOW on 01 845 6302 for some useful advice and tips!

Here are just a Few Tips to get past the employer’s first glance and put you in serious contention for the job you are applying for.

  1. No Spelling Mistakes: This is a surprisingly very common occurrence on CVs, however all programmes have a spell check option, so there is simply no excuse! Some recruiters and employers will refuse to respond to CVs with spelling mistakes as it shows a complete lack of attention on the part of the applicant. Don’t let that happen to you.  
  2. Tailor your CV: Your CV should be concise and should clearly emphasise the experience that makes you suitable for the job you are applying for. This means adapting your CV to the role by highlighting the different areas of your work or academic history to suit each particular role. Have a look at our LinkedIn page to see what New Opportunities we have as well as Market Updates!
  3. Show off your achievements: Don’t just list the duties you performed in previous employments, outline your achievements too. Your CV should portray a candidate who sought and gained experience and who made a serious contribution. Years’ of service is not enough to convince employers of your suitability. Use your CV to outline projects taken on or sales targets exceeded etc. No one will thank you for being modest and employers will appreciate a candidate who can take on new challenges and succeed.
