How to get the most out of the Office Admin CV template
This office admin CV template is filled in with example content for an Office Administrator role. However, the template could just as easily be used for any role at all.
Just out of sight of the preview images above, there’s a quote from each of your references. This is completely optional but a great way to add credibility as employers don’t tend to contact references until they’re ready to offer you a job.
Another feature of this office admin CV template is that it splits the skills into specific and personal attributes. This is simply a nicer way of saying soft skills and hard skills. Hard skills are specific and tangible, such as your typing speed – while soft skills are less specific, such as your ability to communicate well. Click here for our guide on how to show soft skills on your CV.
If the job advert isn’t too specific as to what soft skills are required, you could review some job profiles for this type of role at Prospects.ac.uk:
An additional feature of this office admin CV template that is worth mentioning is the generous space given to your personal statement. This is a really important opener for your CV and should set out:
- Who you are
- What you have to offer (in relation to this SPECIFIC role that you’re applying for)
- What you’re looking for
The first two points are the most important. You could include the last point in your covering letter if you would rather use the space to quickly summarise why you’re the perfect person for the job! See ‘Writing your personal profile CV statement‘ for more info.
Use quality paper and printer
Finally, don’t forget that a great layout is only part of your presentation. If you’re sending in a paper CV, print your CV on good quality paper using a decent printer, or have it printed at the local print shop. If you need to fold it, put your covering letter in front and fold both documents together, taking care not to get any dirt on them. Use a quality envelope and write neatly, remembering that every aspect of your application says something about you.
If you’re applying online, it may be tempting to create a PDF but this can cause issues if the employer wants to process your application through software. Check the job description to see if a particular format is requested – otherwise send your CV in Word format.
