It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person in possession of a good CV stands a much greater chance of being selected for a job interview than a candidate without. And that a poorly written CV will not get anywhere near the hiring manager.


There is plenty of advice generally available on how to write a compelling CV (for example, through the National Careers Service www.nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk ), but, whichever format you choose, we recommend the following:


From time to time, start a new CV on a blank page, instead of updating an existing CV. This helps to think critically about what facts about you are most relevant to a new role, and how to present them.


It is always a good idea to ask a colleague or friend to read through and check and re-check for spelling, punctuation and grammar – humans are poor at spotting our own errors. And errors cause rejection.
