Prove that you’re the best candidate for the job

This one speaks for itself, right? The goal of your CV is to document your education and experiences. What the employer is looking for is proof that you will be a good fit for the job that they offer. Any recruiter will have to look through hundreds of CV’s – and they might all be very similar to yours. If that is the case, you don’t stand a good chance of being noticed or remembered. One way to make yourself stand out is to use an eye-catching layout. Another thing to remember is that some companies – large companies that get lots of applicants – use computer screening to pick the best candidates. This involves scanning the document for key terms. Make sure you figure out and include these key terms in your CV! Here is a list of keywords for a marketing-related job.

Show you are well organized

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.

You need to show your best self

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.

For those of us who are stuck at home again, now might be the time to update and polish our CVs. For inspiration, check out our free downloadable CV templates – and think about how you will make them unique to you. Good luck!
