Highlighting your key skills and making sure they stand out to potential employers is one of the most important things that your CV needs to achieve.
Head Of Education
Joe is our Head of Education and Talent Acquisition with over 5 years of experience working within educational and commercial recruitment – know exactly what our partner schools need to see when reviewing your CV! Here are his tips for tailoring your CV to individual job roles:
1. Change your CV when applying for different roles
Adjust your personal profile to highlight skills specific to the job description. This will help employers to see how you could succeed in the role you are applying for.
2. Drill down the top five elements of your previous role
It might help to write down everything you did and select the most vital or relevant 5 to create a bulleted list under your most recent employment.
2. Be descriptive about your successes
Don’t just list what you did in your previous role, talk about how you did it and what the result was.
We hope these tips help you feel confident about creating a fantastic CV!
