Advice on writing your CV

Start the filename of your CV with your name.

Your CV is your first chance to demonstrate your writing skills. You must be clear and concise. Don’t forget to check your CV thoroughly. Look out for any typographical, spelling and grammatical errors.

Limit your CV to two or three sides of A4 paper, if you can.
