Nice concept.

Fun idea: Is your work Google-themed? Why not change the headers to match Google’s logo colours? If you’re using Microsoft Word, you’ll need to know the colours represented as RGB. Click on the text colour button and choose ‘More Colours’, then click on the ‘Custom’ tab and fill in the RGB values below for the relevant colour.

How important is education on your CV? 

There are many instances when having your early grades from school and college are vital for your CV, and must be present if you want to stand any chance of getting your dream job. However, there are also many instances when your education is taking up valuable space.

Here are a few examples of when you may or may not need to put down your grades from school…

You’ve been working for many years in the same industry 

If you’ve been working in the same job or industry for many years and your CV has a world of experience taking up a lot of space on your CV, then you probably don’t need to worry too much about your grades from school or college.

When applying for another job to perform a similar role to your current position, you’ll often find that the hiring manager is more interested in your experience and how well you’ve been performing within that role.

When looking at a CV from the eyes of the employer, you have to weigh up your options as to what’s more important – that the candidate has good grades and some experience, or that they have years of experience in this role so grades from 20 years ago don’t really matter.

It comes down to what the employer is looking for 

If you have recently left school and have little to no prior job experience, then your grades are going to be extremely important for your CV. Without them your CV is obviously going to look very bare, and your academic achievements so far are most likely going to be your focus when it comes to showcasing your abilities to an employer.
