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.
