Step 2: The Formal Application continued ...

When submitting your CV the following are some major Dos & Don'ts:

Do R

  • Include on page 1 all your contact details - Not as part of the header or footer.
  • Include a brief summary of your career to date in paragraph form.
  • Write in a clean, neat and easily readable font.
  • Include job specific details. i.e. for a sales job include relevant sales targets and performance. For a developer role include a skills matrix.
  • Start with your current position and work backwards.
  • Include the dates of each job i.e. May 2003 - May 2007, rather than 2003 - 2007.
  • Include as much information as possible about each position i.e. Position Title, Date, Responsibilities, Achievements.

Do Not T

  • Submit your application on one of the generic online job board resume templates. They look unprofessional and unoriginal.
  • Have a brightly coloured CV with a fancy font.
  • Submit your CV in any other format than RTF, .Doc or PDF. (Office 2007 users take note!! Not everybody can open Docx files and many employers will not download the conversion software!)
  • Write a mini autobiography. Hiring managers seldom bother with 25 page life story style CVs! A 4 to 5 page CV is the ideal length.
  • Include clichéd phrases such as "Hard Worker","Punctual", etc.
  • Leave large gaps in employment unexplained on your CV. If overseas, simply write overseas travel and the dates. If unemployed or on a career break, simply write that too.
