Improve Your CV as easy as 1-2-3

Working at one of the leading recruitment agencies Surrey, the team here at On Track Recruitment is well versed in helping candidates perfect their CVs so that they only send out the best version possible in their applications. Updating your CV can be a notoriously difficult task to tackle, but we’ve compiled a few tips to help improve yours without you having to completely overhaul it.


Prove Yourself

We all know that a CV is meant to highlight what exactly it is you’re capable of, and what you can bring to a role if given the chance, but to really level-up your CV, you’ll want to provide examples of results and successes achieved in your working life. After all, demonstrating your strengths make your CV a lot stronger than one that simply lists off skills without backing them up with evidence!


Keep it Relevant

It can be tempting to cram in as much work experience as possible on your CV, especially if you don’t have much much, or don’t feel too confident with what you have – unfortunately, this can do more harm than good! Some work history may simply not be relevant to the roles that you’re applying for now and will just be taking up space that could be better used for other information; pick and choose what you include so that it best fits the specific positions for which you are applying.


Build From a Sturdy Foundation

It’s a good idea to have a ‘base’ or ‘master’ CV, which features essential information that you can tweak for each different position that you apply for. Personalisation is key, but you don’t want to have to start from scratch for each job application! If you’re struggling with wording certain sections of your CV, such as your skill sets, or previous work responsibilities, try looking at job listings and descriptions to get an idea of the language you should be using.
