Check and double-check

Attention to detail is imperative when compiling your CV.

Always check for spelling and grammatical errors and get others to check it too. Keep the layout logical, clean and neat and avoid excessive use of the first person – ‘I, me, mine’. Be relevant, respectful, jargon-free and use bullet points intelligently, in conjunction with well-constructed text. When it comes to your salary and commission structure, get your figures right and be consistent in interview. Similarly, when you quote your dates of employment at the interview, make sure they tally with what’s logged on your CV.
