2. USE HEADLINES
CVs aren’t easy reads, so be kind to the reader by laying it out in a way that’s painless to navigate. Use headlines to separate each section (like education, employment history and awards). Colour does not achieve anything; making it clear and easy to read with a well laid-out format does. mistakes make prospective employers question your attention to detail in real life. Always spell check your CV – and never use txt language. If in doubt, ask for a second opinion and have someone else check it over just in case. Remember, you’re trying to get a job, not a date.
Find the fine line between showing that you really want the job and expressing your personality.
