What Should The Format Of My CV Be Like?

Your CV is the first thing an employer will see when you apply for their job vacancy, and in most cases, how it looks at first glance will determine if the employer decides to read it in more detail or not.

To give yourself the best possible chance of standing our from the crowd and enticing the employer into read your CV in more detail, the format of your CV should be as follows:

  • 1. CV Length

    Keep it brief and easily read by using clear spacing and bullet points. – two sides of A4 will almost always suffice.

  • 2. Font Choice and Font Size

    Choose something professional, clear and easy to read such Arial, Calibri, or Times New Roman with font size between 10 to 12, although your name and the section headings can be a little larger (size 14 or 16) and/or bolded.
    Whichever you choose, avoid fonts like brush script or cooper black, that will make you CV look more like its fit for a comic or magazine rather than a job application.

  • 3. Clear & Chronological Lay out

    The layout of your CV should be in a logical order, with sufficient spacing and clear section headings.
    Where you are listing items that include dates, for example work and educational history, make sure you lay these out in chronological order; starting with the most recent items first in the list.

  • 4. Spelling & Grammar

    Check your grammar and spelling thoroughly... and then check it again!
