Your CV should not go beyond two pages, so deciding what to include and what to leave off is very important. Everything you include should be relevant to the needs of your employer and be designed to enhance your application.
It is vital to fully understand what the company is looking for; parts of your background will be more relevant to what the company requires than others. You can adapt your CV for the specific job requirement; try to match what you offer with the company’s needs. Do your research on the company, read the job advertisement carefully and then highlight how your CV ties in with their job requirements.
Include relevant examples of your achievements that make you an especially well qualified candidate. Show why your skills are transferrable; tell the employer what you can do with your talent in the position you’re applying for. Bullet-point your list of skills and include a brief note alongside each skill. The employer can scan the list and you can talk in greater depth about them at your interview.
