How to create a good CV
Remember that your CV is your first opportunity to communicate your skills and experiences to a future employer. It is a snapshot of who you are, your skills, your educational background, work experiences and other achievements.
Highlight examples of your skills and experiences matching the job you are applying for. Pay close attention to the details published in the vacancy notice.
Make sure you update the ‘About Me’ section to highlight why you are the best person for the job. Do not include a full detailed history. Focus on facts and main points that match the job you have in mind.
Make sure your CV is easy to read. Use clear and simple language. Use strong verbs (e.g. ‘managed’, ‘developed’, ‘increased’).
Always list the most recent experience on the top followed by previous ones. In case of long gaps in working or learning, include an explanation.
Check for spelling and grammar mistakes, provide a professional e-mail address, and add a professional photograph of yourself.
