Make sure your CV is concise but informative!

A well laid out CV should tell an employer about who you are professionally and personally, where you’ve worked before, what your achievements were there, if any, what you’ve learnt from each role etc… In other words, don’t just write down everything about yourself but also what makes you unique as well.

Proofread carefully!
