Frequently Asked Questions

What format should I choose for my CV?


The format you choose depends on the skills and experience you have in relation to the role you are applying for. This will be different each time you apply for a new job so be prepared to change your CV so that it targets each specific role. There is information on and examples of different formats in our CV section.

Make sure that the layout has your most relevant experience in a high profile place as you don’t want skills that make you the ideal candidate buried at the end of your CV. Often a hybrid CV is the best choice so that you can highlight some related work and follow up with all the skills you have that they require for the role.
