Why your CV needs a makeover
If you’ve been working for many years and still have the same tired old CV – then now’s the time for a makeover!
In the good old days you only had to add work experience to your CV every time you moved jobs, but that isn’t good enough in today’s competitive job market. A CV created many years ago, and even just a few years ago, is going to look tired and outdated when compared to the more streamlined, focused CV’s and covering letters that are being written today.
Don’t be afraid to start again
If you want to truly make a difference to your old CV it’s always recommended to just start again from scratch. Although this sounds like a lot of unnecessary work, it’s going to ensure you get a fresh new look to your CV.
If you choose to update your CV you run the risk of keeping too much of the old look, and by starting from scratch you guarantee to end up with something far better than the original without falling into the trap of keep outdated information on an outdated layout.
