Make Your CV Individual
Your CV should be as individual to you as possible, so we highly recommend you edit and change the template as much as you’re comfortable with, to reflect yourself and the job your applying for.
Research the Company / Employer
Every employer will have a different approach to recruitment and the things they are trying to spot from a potential candidate. For this reason it’s always best to do a little research about the company you’re applying for to find out about their company ethos and values. You’ll get most of your clues from the job description but dig a little further and find out as much as you can, which will also help in the interview!
Tailor your CV to each Company
If you’re applying to multiple businesses, make small changes to your CV to tailor it to each one. This makes it relevant to each employer and answers the questions they may have about you. Sending a generic CV to hundreds of companies isn’t a good idea, as potential employers can spot these a mile away.
The only thing to say now is….good luck. We’re sure if you do your research follow the hints and tips set out in your template and have a positive attitude you’ll find success!
