10 tricks to get your job application noticed

  1. Use quality paper – if you make the effort it suggests you care about getting the job.
  2. Stick to 2 pages and keep the CV focused on relevant experience, qualifications and achievements.
  3. Choose appropriate hobbies and interests, and include sports/fitness activities – prospective employers want to know you’ll fit in and you won’t have too many sick days.
  4. Never badmouth a past employer – recruiters will immediately wonder if you’ll give them the same treatment.
  5. If you include a photo, ensure it’s professional. See below for further guidance.
  6. Print using a good quality printer – if the words and details are crisp and clear, your CV will make a far better impression.
  7. Line up the staple at the top – it’s a simple detail that won’t be noticed if you get it right but stands out like a sore thumb when you do a sloppy job.
  8. Don’t put your CV in a wallet – the recruiter has little time to make their initial ‘cut’ so they definitely won’t bother taking it out and flicking to page 2.
  9. Don’t neglect your covering letter – it’s the first thing the recruiter sees (click here to read our cover letter guide).
  10. Put your application in a quality envelope – again, it shows you care.

Choosing a photo for your CV template

If you decide to include a photo on your CV, make sure you’re wearing smart clothes and your picture is isolated on a plain background. Smile and look positive and happy. Avoid selfie-style poses and pouts that make you look self-interested – not a good trait for an employee! Here are three great examples that would work well on a CV:

  2. Photography by Gwen (centre)
