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.
