Writing an effective CV

When you’re writing your CV, avoid these common mistakes which could cost you a job interview:

  • Using overly lengthy sentences: You’ll quickly lose the recruiter’s attention. Get to the point and keep it snappy.
  • Exaggerating: An experienced recruiter can see past exaggeration so don’t risk losing the interview. Whilst you should put yourself in your best light, don’t be tempted to describe yourself as expert in everything – it won’t ring true.
  • Using jargon: If you think dropping every technical term you know into your CV will impress your recruiter, it won’t. If someone knows what they are talking about, they don’t have to use jargon to prove it.
  • Including unusual hobbies: Whilst you might think that your love of beetle fighting or extreme ironing makes you quirky and interesting, there’s a chance the recruiter will just think you’re a little strange. Employers need to know that you’ll fit in with the rest of the team – at least in the workplace. The best hobbies to tell employers about are fitness and sports related interests which indicate that you’ll be less likely to take sick days or rock up with a hangover every Monday morning.
  • Using meaningless words: ‘Highly motivated’ ‘Team Worker’ ‘Strong Work Ethic’ ‘Hard working’ ‘Good attention to detail’ – these words are routinely dropped into CVs and mean absolutely nothing. The reason they are so empty is because these qualities should go without saying. If you want to demonstrate a particular quality, the best way to do this is to show rather than tell, with examples of projects you’ve worked on backed by results and achievements. For example:
    • I achieved this result…
    • I completed this project on time and within budget…
    • I formulated this strategy…
    • I generated a return on investment…
    • I implemented this policy…
    • I managed this process/team…
    • I planned the process with these results…
    • I represented the Company during discussions…
    • I created…
    • I coordinated…. and so on.
