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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 833 1044.

It didn’t take long to build rapport with Laura, as her excellent communication skills shone through from the start. She placed me in my most recent position and was very thorough in liaising between myself and my prospective employer at the time - an often understated skill. Moving to a new city for the position at short notice was not going to be easy, but Laura made sure I was as informed and prepped as possible when going through the interview stages and seemed to always have my best interests at heart. One of the most personable recruiters I have worked with, and I will certainly be calling her first when I am considering changing position again!
