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.

Sophie & the team at The Candidate provided us with an extremely professional and efficient service. Of the 5 interviews we conducted any of the candidates would have fit the role perfectly, it's a shame we had to narrow it down to 2. Highly recommended. Thanks!
