Mind the gaps
Avoid leaving any career gaps and put a positive spin on any breaks in employment – such as mentioning volunteer work or training you might have completed in those periods.
Wording is ‘key’
Think about keywords if you are uploading your CV online so that recruiters can find you more easily. Use words or phrases that are synonymous with your profession.
Don’t be a cliché
Avoid using age-old buzz-phrases like 'Team Player' and 'Self-motivated individual' unless you include evidence to back them up!
