    Golden Rules:

    • Be clear, use an easy to read font, black print on white paper.
    • Ensure it follows a logical order – insert clear section headings.
    • Proof read more than once and don’t completely rely on spell check –it isn’t foolproof, particularly when a word has more than one meaning.
    • Be concise. Ideally it should be no more than two pages, however, more is acceptable depending on your skills/experience or specialist knowledge.
    • Be honest. You may have to provide supporting information/documentation in an interview.
    • Avoid long paragraphs; bullet points are a good tool as they break up the page and make reading easier.
    • Do not use complex graphics unless you are applying for a role that requires you to demonstrate your artistic flair.
    • Ensure formatting and layout are consistent.
