Crewit CV Tips



The CV is probably the most important part of your application. After all, based on it, you will land that interview for your dream job or not. However, sometimes we are too tired and we overlook some details that could put us in front of other applicants. Here are some CV Tips from the team!

Name 

Make sure you write your first name first, followed by your surname, especially if your first name is not Mary or Anne.

Contact information 

Have both your phone number and your email address written down in your CV. And that they are both updated.

Current location

Make sure you have your updated location in your CV.

Experience

 It should come before education unless you are a student with no work experience.

Make sure you write down the time frame, company, role and responsibilities.

The experience stated in your CV must be relevant to the job you are applying for.

Education

Keep it simple – institution, degree achieved and time frame.

If you have any other qualifications relevant to the job you are applying for, mention them.

Additional information

Driving licence, languages, MS Office, graphic design skills, anything goes.

Hobbies and interests

Conversation start point for many recruiters and employers, they show you are a real person and not a robot.

We’ve talked about content. However, appearance is one of our BIG CV Tips.

The magic words are: Keep It Simple!

Font size never smaller than 11: we recommend 11 or 12

Don’t use different font styles: choose one and stick to it

Leave spaces; make it easy to read

Use the same format for every paragraph

Ideally Word (.doc; .docx); CVs in PDF might be difficult to convert because of the databases used by recruitment agencies, so Word is a safe bet!
