Starting your CV right
Consider using a template or a CV builder. Several are available in Microsoft Word, Google Docs, or for free elsewhere online.
Watch your spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Use a spellcheck to ensure there are no errors.
More to you than just work
Your experience in work
Start with your most recent role and detail any key duties which are relevant to the role you are applying for.
Simplify complicated work periods
If you do offer any references, think carefully about who you use.
Keep it brief
If the employer isn't convinced after two pages, four more won't help!
