The first thing to remember when you are looking to write out your CV is to look at it from a prospective employers point of view. The second thing to remember is that the human resources officer who looks at your job application initially may potentially see dozens of CV’s and job applications every day. Both of these points means you should make sure that your CV in concise and that your strong points are laid out clearly at the beginning of the CV for them to see.

Remember that your CV is basically a marketing tool that you are using to promote yourself to prospective employers. There fore you should pay a lot of attention to detail and also make sure that it is up to date. A well written CV is essential to get to the next stage, basically the interview.
