  • The job market is extremely competitive and so, CVs have to be an enjoyable read, whereby recruiters and employers can extract the information they need quickly.
  • While candidates might think that a complicated looking CV will earn them points with employers as it makes them look sophisticated and clever, it is not necessarily true.
  • To achieve this successfully, candidates should consider dividing your CV up into sections that are identifiable and will make employers want to read more.
  • Your CV is your way of showing potential employers who you are, what you do and how you can benefit them and so, you need to portray a professional image.
