Common CV mistakes 

In a world dominated by professional CVs it only takes one mistake to create doubt in the mind of the recruiter. It could be a simple spelling mistake, or an error in your structure.

Here are a few popular examples of mistakes and how to avoid them…

Make sure you do your research 

If you write your CV without looking to see what potential employers are looking for, you are in the dark and your CV will be too generic. Instead, tailor your CV based on your research of what the employer is looking for in a candidate. The first place to look is the job advert itself as it will reveal most of what you need to begin writing your CV.

What skills and qualifications are they looking for?

What experience is required, or could be used on your CV?

What keywords are used within the job advert?

Another great way to get an idea of what the employer is looking for is to research the company – this could be through their website for example. Use as much information as you can about the role and the company to create your CV.

Create easy to read, well structured job descriptions 

Recent and/or relevant roles will be read in depth by the employer, so it makes sense to ensure they are easy to read and structured correctly. A common mistake is to piece together everything in one long paragraph, however it would be much better if you created bullet points so each important section of information could be easily read and separated from the rest.

Each past role should start with a brief introduction of the company, followed by your role as well as your job title and what your role within the company is or was. Your responsibilities and tasks can then be bullet pointed underneath, making the whole structure easy to follow.

Tip: Highlight outstanding achievements and results for a particular role that relates to the new job you are applying for. Additional information about what you achieved during this role makes for a fantastic read.

Avoid clichés 

A common mistake made on a CV that we see all too often is using too many clichés like – ‘Great communicator’, or ‘Works great in a team’. No matter how impressive this may sound the reader unfortunately has no basis on which to go on to see that this is true.

If you want the employer to see that you are a hard work or great team player you need to demonstrate that on your CV – it doesn’t need to be shouted out point blank! By using examples of your past results and achievements you are clearly indicating that you are great in these areas.

A CV that has been padded out with far too many clichés is one that will end up on the ‘no’ pile!
