Candidates are increasingly thinking of new ways of formulating CV's in order to "stand out from the crowd." However pushing creativity too far can be disastrous and they end up making a meal out of what should be a well documented career path. This set of guidelines will help you format your CV, increasing your chances of securing that all important interview:
Try and avoid saying socialising with friends, playing football,
going to the cinema - tell them where you like going, what team you
support or what the last film you watched was.
Interesting interests - always stand out - i.e. - sword swallowing, log fluming, rock climbing. However, do not lie.
This two dimensional document is to ensure you get over that first hurdle so it is vital that you take the time to think through how you can portray yourself in the best light. For any further career and cv advice please don't hesitate to contact any of The Candidate recruitment team on email@example.com or call 0161 833 1044.
I have recently had the pleasure of working with Laura at The Candidate where she helped me find a role in Manchester. Laura was really hands on, was always on the end of the phone to advise and chat me through the process. She was incredibly helpful, professional and just generally lovely to work with, so it made the whole experience very easy.
