What does a good CV look like?

Is your CV getting you invites to interview? 

If the ratio between applying for vacancies and receiving an invite to interview seems low then we’ll show you what to check and include and how to improve the information you are sharing. 

Content & Information

Before you put ‘pen to paper’ it’s worth giving some thought to the content and information you are including in your CV.


Employers are looking for evidence that you have made a difference.  Including achievements on your CV is essential and we’ll show you how. 

First or third person?

Recruiters actually don’t really care about this one, well they will have a personal preference but not when screening in or out.  However, you need to be consistent with your style, fonts and writing styles. 

Applicant Tracking Systems ATS

An ATS are sophisticated electronic databases that usually manage the vacancy and the candidate. 

So, your CV is likely to be screened initially by the ATS not a human. 

How many pages?

There’s a lot of differing opinions on the web.  Ideally, a good CV will be 2 pages.  However, there are some exceptions and we’ll share.

Have you proof-read your CV?

Proof-reading is not just conducting a spelling check.  Proof-reading is ensuring the sentences flow and that the information makes sense. 

Does your CV pass the 6-second test?

According to research by TheLaddars, recruiters spend less than 6 seconds reviewing CVs.
