- Education- again in chronological order, starting with any relevant professional qualifications - i.e. CIM. Highlight your dissertation if relevant to the role- although this tends to be more prevalent for graduates. You are not required to list every grade for A levels and GCSEs - simply the number of grades A-C.
- Interests? Yes- they should be on there - this sets you out from the crowd or when there is a shortlist scenario - 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.
