CV Tips

Make sure your cv gets you noticed (for the right reasons)

The task of sitting down and writing your CV isn’t easy.

In fact it’s one of the trickiest challenges of your entire job search. There are lots of factors to think about.

What should you include? And what should you miss out?

At Arden Personnel, we receive hundreds of CVs and know that secret formula to success.  Follow our CV tips to help write you the perfect CV for your dream job.


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!


The Devil’s in the details

Don't make sweeping statements about your career achievements. If you managed a budget, explain how you met objectives - these specific points will help your prospective employer.


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.
