When you’re on the hunt for a new job opportunity, it pays to understand the rules and guidelines of employer CV expectations. So StandOut CV have provided 5 essential CV writing rules to follow if you want to ensure your CV gets attention for employers.

Ensure that your CV is specifically targeted towards one type of role to give it maximum appeal in that area. Trying to please everyone with your CV will make it appear to generic and weaken it’s effectiveness.

Make sure that your CV makes a big impact on opening by heading it with a persuasive profile and tailoring it to include the most important requirements for the roles you are applying to.

Create a flawless appearance by using professional language throughout your CV and triple checking it for errors – as just one mistake could cause recruiters to start doubting your credibility.

Prove your value to employers by including key achievements that have impacted your previous workplaces and quantify their importance by including some impressive facts and figures.

Your CV needs to be easy for recruiters to read and digest information so use a clean simple font and break the text up as much as possible.
