The first in CV Writers comprehensive guide to CV writing.

Over the next, well 10 weeks, CV Writers will be publishing our top ten tips for creating a great CV. Follow these rules and your CV will improve immeasurably.

1. Keep it short

It’s a fact that most recruiters spend only a few minutes skim reading most CVs. You have to attract attention very quickly. A 2 page CV is sufficient for 90% of job seekers. Most of the important stuff should go on the FIRST PAGE. This is the page that gains most attention.

Who said length wasn’t important?

There are exceptions of course. If you’re a student or graduate, you may be able to get all your information on a 1 page CV. If you’re an academic with lots of publications to your name then you may need a 3 or 4 page CV.

In general though don’t be tempted to think that a long CV will impress. It’s more likely to turn off than turn on. Engage the reader quickly and leave them wanting more….
