Mobile Number on your CV

Firstly, make sure you put your mobile number on your CV.

Recruiters work 9-5 (or 8-6!) and need to be able to contact you during those hours, or, at the very least, leave you a message so you need to give them the number.

Secondly, don’t write it as one long sequence of numbers as this makes it hard to read and more likely that they will dial the wrong number. If they call the wrong person they may not even know it as most people don’t personalise their answer phone message, and you won’t even know that you missed that call.

You should present it as 07777 123 456 rather than 07777123456.

This may seem like a very trivial issue but it’s the detail that matters on a CV.
