What is a tailored CV?

A tailored CV (also commonly called a resume) is a resume written to answer a specific job advertisement. Rather than sending a generic CV to lots of different companies for lots of different roles, tailoring your CV to meet the exact requirements of the position will dramatically increases your chances of landing an interview.

To write a targeted CV, you need a job advertisement.  You need to read the ad very carefully and work out exactly the type of candidate they are looking to employ, and how you match the skills and qualities they are after.  Specifically look at the required and desired experience and skills listed in the job ad and include the skills that apply to you in your CV.

Only include information about your work experience that is relevant to this specific position.  Your tailored targeted CV will help you look like the ideal candidate.

We recommend that you make the time to always tailor your CV for any job that you really want.
