• Make it easy to read – start with your latest job and work backwards
  • Include all relevant information – but don’t overdo the detail
  • Use clear formatting and simple fonts
  • The best way to demonstrate attention to detail is to check your spelling and grammar (then check it again)
  • If emailing a CV, use a standard file format – RTF is best – so it looks the same when it gets there
  • And don’t forget to attach the file – it’s a common mistake
