HOW SHOULD I CONTRUST MY WORK DESCRIPTION ENTRIES
two common strategies...
gapping - the use of incomplete sentences in order to present your information as clearly and concisely as possibly
parallelism - use verb phrases in one portion of your CV to describe your duties, make sure that the structure of your phrases is exactly parallel
In CV, don't ever cramp everything in one line, try to use bullets to help you for a better CV.
Show your CV to different people and ask for their opinion of the layout
Check spelling and grammar if you are in any doubt about anything
Spread the content evenly through the available space; it is kinder on the eye and encourages the reader to continue
Leave anything in that you don’t think adds to the total effect
Worry if the laying out of the CV is a fiddly business. It normally takes as long to get right as finding the content did
Photocopy your CV if it is possible to print off fresh copies each time
Present your CV
