Instead of just listing your responsibilities and re-writing your job description try to include things you have achieved for the company since you have been there – make sure you can back these up with facts and figures. Put down any skills you may have for example driving licence/languages/computer skills. Also any recent training that may be relevant to the role.

Don’t leave gaps in your work history, ensure that all of your dates are accurate. It is important not to lie on your CV as many employers will find out via references or contacts within the industry. If it doesn’t hinder you getting the job in the first place it will certainly not help you in the future if your employer finds out that you lied.

Be positive in your CV. Don’t say anything negative about any of your previous employers. Use action verbs such as ‘developed’, ‘managed’ and ‘achieved’. Show evidence of your leadership skills by portraying your actions and decisiveness.

Finally ensure that you read through your CV thoroughly. Check for any spelling or grammatical errors. All of the details you provide will be a basis for the interview so it is vital that it is accurate – be prepared to answer questions such as reasons for leaving your previous positions. Remember your CV alone won’t get you the job, it is only the first step. The rest is up to you.
