Be Positive!

Employers look for positive language in a CV.

Sounds obvious but the number of CVs we see that use weak language is incredible.

What do we mean by “Positive Language”?

Perhaps the most common example is when applicants say in their profile “I consider myself to be a hard working person” or “I can consider myself to be a reliable employee”.

This is weak language for a CV.

It’s much better to say “I am a hard working person” or “I am a reliable employee”.

It’s the same thing but so much stronger and positive in the way you portray yourself.
