When writing some blurb for the new website, I was trying to work out how many CVs I had written over the years. It has to be around 1000. Even though I loved sifting through hundreds of CVs on an extremely regular basis, there were – and still are – some things that really got my goat. And if they got my goat, they will be getting other recruiters’ goats too.
There are lots of CV guides out there. You can give your CV to five, ten or fifteen different people for an opinion and they will all say different things. The observations in this blog are based on almost twenty years’ experience of writing, reading and using CVs to recruit for positions I’ve needed to fill and apply for positions I’ve wanted to have. So, as with any guide, take the bits you like and ignore the bits you don’t….but these are very tried and tested!
