How to revamp your CV

The beginning of the year is a great time to update your CV so you are prepared for new opportunities that may arise as companies commence hiring.

Your CV is an important initial opportunity to make a lasting impression on your potential employer. As it’s likely to be the first thing that they will see, you must ensure that your CV stands out from the rest as it could make the difference between securing an interview and missing out on your ideal role. 

"Refreshing your CV is essential in identifying major steps you have taken in your professional development, reminding yourself of what skills you have to offer and focusing on taking the next step in your career," said Sam Walters, Director at Robert Walters.

Showcase your skills within your current role

The first step to updating your CV is to include your most recent achievements and responsibilities in your current role. Using targets set in your appraisal will help you to recall and reflect on accomplishments you have made.

If you have been in the same role for a long time, it is crucial to update your CV to reflect the newest skills you have gained. Using sub-headings to discuss relevant projects you have completed is a useful way to highlight the full scope of your role to a future employer. Remember to be clear and keep to the point so that the reader is continually engaged.

Create an online presence

Your CV does not have to be confined to a paper document - having a strong and professional LinkedIn profile is an invaluable asset to support your CV. Not only in your profile visible to your future employer, but it is also visible to a large network of head-hunters, future employers and potential colleagues who may find your profile through searches or their own network connections.

On your profile, remember to include:

  • An engaging headline that will showcase your career experience
  • A recent and professional profile headshot
  • A brief list of your key skills which provides a snapshot of your current role remit
  • Any professional qualifications you may have as well as any LinkedIn groups you may be a part of
