Preparing your CV

Preparing your CV

Making a good first impression with a future employer starts with your CV. It is the only way you can communicate to a prospective employer that he or she needs to take your application seriously.

Take your time when compiling your CV. Keep it concise, and don’t enhance the facts or overinflate your achievements. Being dishonest will not make a good impression.

Be sure to include the following information in your CV:

Your gross salary expectation
Your notice period or availability

Employment History:

  • All employment details and employer’s details
  • All duties and responsibilities
  • Employment dates
  • Reasons for leaving


  • Indicate references of previous employers and a reference person, their position and contact details.
  • A reference person needs to be in a management position, or someone who you directly reported to.
