What are employers looking for on your CV?

Your CV is in most cases the first introduction you can make to potential new employers. It’s important therefore to get it right and stand out from the crowd. So what are employers looking for when it comes to your CV?

Make it clear. A CV should be no longer than 2 pages, and should be informative and concise when it comes to detailing your skills and experiences. Stick to the point!

Education v skills? Include your highest level of qualification, but also include a bullet point list of your skill sets – this will immediately tell an employer what you’re made of.

How does it look? Make sure the CV is formatted correctly, and use a font that is easy to read and professional.

Tailor your CV. Yes, it can seem a big task, but you should edit your CV according to each role you apply for – pointing out your key areas of expertise for the specific job you’re applying to.
