When hunting for a job it can often be a very competitive and often hard situation to be in. Below you will find some tips to standing out in the job market and getting hired in the job if your dreams. You can make sure that you tailor your CV to the position you are applying for by looking closely at the jobs vacancies advert.

The CV
When you apply for jobs, your CV will be the most important tool you have to use. your CV is the only way that you can tell the employer you are the right person for the job and should be given an interview to demonstrate your skills.

Studies have shown that about half of the employers decide to accept or reject job applications based on the related work experience listed in the CV. A third of the employers decide to reject or accept these job applications based on the layout design of these applications.

1. Make Your CV Concise and Relevant
Do not write a really long CV. Most of the information you put on will not make a difference to your prospects. Time is money to an employer so the less they have to read the better. respect the employers time and provide them with a succinct CV.

2. Tailor-Write Your CV.
Do not list any previous work you have done where it is not relevant to the role you have applied for. you might want to design a few basic CVs that would be suitable for different types of jobs. one CV will not be appropriate for every job you apply for. A one-size-fits-all CV may not be the best way to go since the employer will have the impression that your previous efforts have not been focused enough to produce any specialization on your part.

3. Write about your achievements
You may add your achievements, but make your statements factual and relevant. Making the most of your experiences is good but do not big yourself up without backing any statements up. Do not list any weak points however as this will turn the interviewer off straight away
