10 Tips to Improve Your CV

Clearly understand what you want in your clinical career and take the time to form a clear and obtainable objective. Also understand what skills and experience are needed to do well in a particular role. You can structure the content of your CV around that objective.

You want us to be interested enough to contact you for an interview. Simply put yourself in the shoes of those who will review the CV - what would they be looking for in a candidate?

CVs are read quickly so key phrases should stand out. Bulleting information will help us view your accomplishments at a glance - you can go into the details during the interview.

Words like prepared, managed, developed, monitored, and presented make your CV stand out and make us recognize you are an energetic and enthusiastic candidate who makes things happen.

Put the strong and most relevant points first. This is your hook for the reader, the rest of the information will reel them in.

Review specifics of the role on our site and match prevalent words to the bullet points in your CV. Chances are you possess many of the attributes already, so add them when you can do so without extending to additional pages.

Negative comments don’t belong on your CV. Focus on the educational details and experiences that support your objective. Leave out personal information like your race, weight, and height.

A CV should be limited to one page. Make certain you’re using the space to your full advantage. The font size should be no smaller than 10 point, standard serif or sans serif fonts with plenty of space between lines and in the margins.

Many online services will help review and polish your CV. However, you’re the only person who can truly personalize it to fit your objective. Before you send it off, have a friend or mentor read through your CV for final input with a fresh perspective.

Most companies (even smaller ones) are already using digital databases to search for candidates. This means that the HR department will run search queries based on specific keywords, which are typically nouns. Be sure to check the role description for key words and terminology that are used and update your CV to match.
