There is a reason that no one likes preparing their CV – it is time consuming and takes a lot of organising! Even the most qualified candidate will have a hard time deciding what to include and what not – and it might make all the difference. Having a strong CV shows that you know how to prioritise, and how to condense lots of information into just one sentence. This is a super useful skill in itself, and employers will notice. On top of that, think about the layout. If you turned in a CV that was just a bunch of bullet points down the page, no one would be impressed. It takes time to craft a unique layout that is appropriate for the job. Having a CV that is eye-catching and easy to read will say just as much as the writing itself.
Some say that pride is a sin. Maybe this is true for vanity, but we think that taking pride in your work is an entirely different matter. You’ve worked hard to get to where you are, and you should show it. Part of creating a strong CV is in learning how to appreciate your own skills and experiences. Don’t downplay your accomplishments – show them off instead. Confidence is a huge factor in how people perceive you, and a strong CV will let your confidence shine through. This is especially important when the recruiter hasn’t met you yet.
