Always Remember to Write a Concise CV


Remember that your CV or Resume is a tool to get you an interview, nothing more. Whilst you need to be informative, your CV merely indicates what experience and skills you have. The interview is where you have the opportunity to explain in detail what you have written in your CV.

Using bullet points on your CV or Resume can force you to write shorter, more pithy sentences that will grab the reader’s attention. Making your CV concise doesn’t mean leaving out large sections of your employment or education history – you need to be able to summarise your experience by drawing out the most relevant skills and knowledge gained.

A concise CV or Resume is one that gets straight to the point, you don’t want the person reading your CV to lose interest. Your CV or Resume is much more likely to stand out and make an impression if it is succinct.
