Curriculum Vitae (CV) PresentationPay attention to the appearance of your CV. Don’t put too much text in your CV. You will need to write an attractive, targeted CV with evidence of particular interest in the position you are applying for; e.g. subject choices, project work, a relevant thesis, hobby or interest. Enhance CV readability by writing with bullet points, they are easier to read and have more impact than large paragraphs of text.

CV WordingAvoid jargon, abbreviations and acronyms unless they are very widely used. Different companies also use different terms. Use the third person: I’s are assumed, for example write “Captained the college football team”, rather than “I captained the college football team”.

Be BriefThere is so much evidence that supports brief CVs. It still surprises me that people still write many pages. For most professions, two pages should be the maximum.
