To write an effective CV, it is best that these tips are adhered to:

1. Get your basics right

There are no rights or wrongs when writing a CV but there are some significant sections you should cover.

    These include:

  • personal and contact information
  • educational qualifications
  • work history/experience
  • industry and products
  • relevant skills to the job in question
  • own interests
  • achievements
  • references

2. Presentation is Key

A good CV is always clear, concise and smartly presented. The layout should be clean and well-structured. Avoid colours, bold formatting and misaligned paragraphs.

Choose a modern and serious font, avoid spelling mistakes and adopt consistent formatting for easy reading.
