Keep the layout simple and easy to read – avoiding any fancy fonts and coloured paper.

Provide clear contact details including an email address.

Give a brief history of your education and qualifications – especially any relevant to the job you want.

Keep it short – use bullet points and short sentences to put across your key skills, highlighting your successes and areas where you have made a contribution to the company.

Make your CV relevant to the type of work you are looking for.

Put your most recent job first and then work backwards.

Don’t leave gaps between jobs – make sure you give details if you have had a career break or taken time off travelling.

Check your spelling – then check again! Ask a friend to read your CV through for you.

Research the company – this will give you some background information and might prove useful during the interview.

Read through the job description – prepare yourself, think of how your experience and knowledge relates to what they are looking for.

Dress appropriately – you should always look professional and smart.

Shake hands with your interviewer, maintain eye contact and be friendly to everyone you meet at the company.

Show your interest in the company, prepare questions to ask and be prepared to answer theirs.

Know where you are going, who to ask for and if needed where car parks are located. Leave yourself plenty of time!.

Don’t criticise past employers or colleagues.

At the end of the interview ask what the next steps are – and if you are particularly interested let the interviewer know.
