CV and Covering Letter

For those of you who are working on your CV and applying for jobs – some helpful tips and advice: YOUR CV Getting your CV right is a key part of the job application. It’s your opportunity to sell yourself, so you need to make sure it’s doing the job for you. Here are some hints and tips on how to write your CV, what you should include and what you should avoid. KEEP IT CLEAR AND CONCISE The ideal CV length is two sides – recruiters are busy people, and often have a large number of CVs to sift through. Don’t give them an essay to read. Try using bullet points. They can help make your CV easier to read. Including a 1-2 sentence personal profile at the top gives a snapshot of your skills and makes a strong early impression. Be sure to include experience and achievements. TAILOR YOUR CV Adapting your CV to the job you’re applying for is crucial. If you don’t, you’re much less likely to get to the next stage. It shows you’ve read the job description and clearly understood how you would fit the role. Start spotting keywords. These will be sprinkled throughout the job advert. Use them in your CV. It can you help to get through the automatic filters some employers use, and it’s a shortcut to catching a recruiter’s eye. Tailor your employment history to focus on more relevant experience. Don’t be afraid to make a big deal of a small job if it’s more relevant to the role you’re going for. MAKING YOUR EMPLOYMENT HISTORY WORK FOR YOU List your experience in date order with the most recent first. Show the dates you were employed in each role, for example, ‘May 2018 to present’. Deciding on how much career history to include on your CV can be challenging. Try to balance the need to show your full range of experience with the need to be concise. Quality is better than quantity. Highlight the most relevant experiences and skills from your current and previous jobs and leave out anything less crucial to the role. Explain any employment gaps. Gaps in employment happen to everyone, but don’t just leave a space on your CV. Briefly explain that you were out of work and point to any transferable skills you might have gained at that time. NO WORK EXPERIENCE? FOCUS ON WHAT YOU DO HAVE It can be hard to know how to write a CV with little or no work experience, but no one has no experience. There are many skills that you’ll have developed outside the workplace, for example, through volunteering, hobbies, caring or community…
