A strong start-
A key thing to consider when writing your CV should be ensuring that it is unique and truly reflects you as a person – anyone can talk about what they bring to a company, which is why it is key to attract the recruiter and grab their attention from the outset. This can be achieved throughout your personal profile, which should essentially tell the recruiter who you are, what you can offer, your career goals and aspirations.
Placing emphasis on your most impressive, interesting and relevant skills and abilities can be done whilst referring back to the job description as a guideline – this will ensure that you are focusing on the areas and skills that are most important to the employer. A personal statement should be a brief description and should be short and succinct – you should aim for your personal statement to be around 150 words long. Most job seekers want to share everything about themselves in their CV but this may appear cluttered and overwhelming for the recruiter, which is why it is essential to get straight to the point and attract the recruiters attention quickly.
