Ensure you have an excellent, comprehensive and well presented CV to give you the best chance of getting an interview.

A CV (Curriculum Vitae) is a document containing your personal information and summarising your education, employment and personal experience. CVs provide employers with information about your knowledge, skills, experience and personal attributes which allows them to decide your suitability for the job or role on offer. An excellent CV will not get you a job but should get you through to the interview or assessment stage.

When creating your CV, the layout and visual presentation are just as important as the words you write. The following sections contain all the rules you need to follow to create a good CV.
