Creating a CV for success
It’s a good time to be looking for a job. The UK job market is booming, and in 2014-15 a record number of graduates were hired, with some sectors experiencing a 23% rise in graduate recruitment. The technology industry is no different, currently boasting 45,000 vacancies.
However, despite the number of tech vacancies, some applicants are missing the mark when it comes to getting the desired job. While there can be many reasons for this, an ineffective CV can make it difficult to get that initial foot in the door. A good CV is the first step towards getting you noticed; however, sitting down to write (or revise) your CV, can seem daunting.
So how can you actually write a CV that a potential employer wants to read? While there’s no formula for getting hired, there are common elements to all successful CVs.
