CV writing is very personal to the individual and therefore it's very hard to get a One Size Fits All format.  There are many books on the subject and some are excellent but lots of candidates do not want to read a book and take hours and days putting it all together.   I am not saying that it's right or even a good idea to just bash something out as care does need to be taken as a CV is quite often the first thing someone knows about you.  


A good CV is created by:

  • What you say (keep it relevant)
  • How you say it (use power and key words)
  • How you present it (use a clear and easy read format)

However, having read thousands of technical CVs and working with candidates and clients for over 3 decades, here's a 1,2,3 easy step guide with good and succinct advice to get you started.


Step 1:  

Read the CV Speedwriting pdf first.


Step 2:  

Read the Power and Key words and phrases here and highlight those you wish to use.  The words you use can have a great impact.


Step 3:  

Download the CV Template and get going.
