Build your job CV today with our free tool


In the current careers climate, competition for jobs is more fierce than ever before. Applications for some roles can run into the hundreds, sometimes thousands, so if your CV does not capture the employer’s imagination, you can forget any chance of landing the job.

CV Fact 1 The CV is a weapon with one specific purpose: to win an interview.
It is a sales letter. Just like a house or car, you are a precious commodity and you need your CV to display your talents in the best possible light.
CV Fact 2 Your CV needs to be well presented and include all the relevant information.
Over 70% of CVs are missing vital information and, as a result, are discarded by an employer.
CV Fact 3 Research shows that your CV will be quickly scanned, rather than read.
Research also tells us that only one interview is granted for every 200 CVs received by the average employer. An attractive CV can put you amongst the favourites for the job, before you’ve even arrived for interview.
