Online CVs and new computer software means employers can be flooded with applicants and are forced to decide in seconds whether they progress you to the next stage. Here are our top tips to help your CV stand out!

Tailor it

It’s no good spending hours perfecting your CV to send out to all employers for different jobs. Each role will require a different set of skills and tailoring your CV to highlight these is essential. Research the company and read through the job spec to make sure you showcase what they are looking for.
