Your CV style should be reflective of your experience and skills, so for example, if you are a professional administrator you would expect to have a CV which is low on grammatical errors and demonstrate a high level amount of formating. CV style is important as it ‘backs up’ your commercial experience.
CV styling can include the use of headers and footers or the main body of the CV, it can also include the use of a cover sheet (a opening page which serves to include contact information and name), however a cover sheet may not be relevent for some positions or for some levels of career.
CV Style, can I use a photo?
Of course. In some industries a photo can be a real asset or even a requirement for your application. Be aware that a providing a photo means that you give an employer further information about you, physically. Choose a photo which presents you in a good light, do not use a group photo or yourself in a bikini (unless you want to send a strong message).
CV Style, what is the right font to use?
A CV should utilise a font ranging from 9 to 12, and may utilise a larger font for headers and sub headers. A CV SHOULD NOT USE CAPITAL LETTERS AS IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR ARE SHOUTING. Be aware that a number of factors such as font style, capitals and size can deliver a tottally unique positioning.
Think carefully about your CV Style and you win dramatically improve your CV.
