MOREPEOPLE CV CLINIC

A Guide to getting your dream job

Get the basics right! Check your CV, and check it again. There are no excuses for oversights and errors on your CV, and nothing is more off putting to a hiring manager. This includes clean formatting and using a consistent tense and language throughout.

Make it unique to you, don’t try and change your CV to make it sound like the job description, inject some personality! Your application is read by many different people in the process, so write it in a way that showcases your personality and passion for the job.

Visit the MorePeople CV Clinic at stand FS7 and bring along a copy of your CV. Sessions will be hosted throughout the day to guide you on CV writing.

LinkedIn

Most hiring managers and recruiters will check LinkedIn profiles when considering CV’s. If information doesn’t match up then it can set alarm bells off straight away.

Make sure you have a profile picture as well, LinkedIn claims that profiles with headshots are 14 times more likely to be viewed than those without a profile picture. It’s good use a good quality, headshot style photo with a clear background that shows you wearing the attire you would wear for an interview. A professional photographer will be available on stand T18 to take your photo for free, so come prepared for your headshot!

Take the time to write yourself a good headline, it’s the first thing that potential employers will see. Try to add one other attribute that will help you stand out, whether this is an important professional qualification or your number of years of experience or additional languages spoken. Spend some time looking at regular LinkedIn contributors for some inspiration!
