Your CV is a showcase of your skills and therefore requires to be updated as and when your skills are advanced or added to.

Think of it as a self-promotional advert.

Heres what you should consider when writing a winning CV for a potential employer:

1. Your CV should always be tailored towards the job youre applying for. Add information that will entice the employer to call you in for a meeting. In your description you should highlight your strengths for the position.

2. Whilst the role of your CV is to highlight your experience, you should go easy on what to include. You do not want to add unnecessary content that will just make the employer lose interest.

3. Market yourself. Use industry specific words that jump out at the employer make your strengths clearly obvious.

4. Apart from containing relevant content, your CV does need to be visually appealing so that it stands out from the batch of CVs on the employers desk. Strike a balance between the content and the design.

5. There are tons of templates freely available on the internet. If you choose to use one, its best you tailor it so that its not a carbon copy of the one you downloaded off a site, as other applicants are likely to have used that exact template you want your CV to be a breath of fresh air for the potential employer. Going out of your way to customise the template shows that youve put effort into your resume.
