Writing the perfect CV

illustration of a CV
  • Recall experiences in which you've demonstrated the behaviours listed in the job description

  • Highlight your contact information and make sure your voicemail message is clear

  • Make pertinent information like education, professional experience, leadership roles, team participation and volunteer experience easy to find

  • Be honest

  • Format your CV so it's readable and concise. One page is preferable but two makes sense if you’ve got a lot of experience

  • Use descriptive language to present your experiences

  • Have evidence and examples to support your statements

  • Wordiness. Use short sentences. Treat your CV like an advertisement

  • Excessive use of borders, italics and fancy fonts. They don't upload cleanly into online systems

  • Overly small font size. Stick to 10-12 point

  • Too much bold type. Only enbold major achievements
