CV polishing tips to win an interview

  1. Employers are busy people who will scan your CV to check your skills and experience, so make it easy for them by creating a summary on the first page.
  2. Sell your strengths; remember, your goal is to get an interview.
  3. Only include information that is relevant to the job you're applying for.
  4. Keep it brief, use bullet points and give specific examples of your skills and experience.
  5. Double and triple check your spelling and grammar, then have it proof-read by someone else.
