If you are looking for your next temporary or permanent job within the dental industry, making sure you have an effective CV is the first step to get noticed by both recruiters (us!) and employers.
Here are a few simple ways for you to achieve the perfect CV for your dream job:
Do Your Research:
General CVs just don’t work, your CV needs to answer each individual job brief. Adapt the details of your skills and experience around the requirements of the job description. Employers only want to hire candidates who meet their expectations, so it’s important to find out what skills they are looking for and include as many of them as you can in your CV.
Use your personal profile to entice the reader and set a professional tone for the rest of your CV. Sell your most relevant skills, knowledge and experience.
Layout Is Key:
Include only the most relevant information on your CV. Avoid too much text, use a clear font, defined sections and short sharp points. Be sure your CV is no more than 2 pages long. Use bullet points to quickly reel off your responsibilities and finish by highlighting some impressive achievements.
Show That You’re Qualified:
List your education and qualifications towards the end of your CV and include only as much detail that is needed for your application. If you are missing a qualification that your dream job requires be sure to join one of our great courses!
Show Your Interests:
It is important to show your future employers that you have a personality and a life outside of work. This is the opportunity for you to demonstrate skills you have gained outside of the workplace and to make yourself sound more than just your job.
Don’t Be Trigger Happy:
Now that you’ve followed all our tips on how to write the perfect CV don’t get too excited and send it. Grammar mistakes and sloppy formatting errors can get your CV rejected very quickly, so make sure that you triple-check your CV and use a grammar checking software tools like Grammarly or Hemingway.
