Tailoring a CV

Spread the love

We often get asked about tailoring CVs for specific applications and whether this is a good idea?


When you reply to a job advert you should always tweak your CV to highlight the skills that are being looked for. This can mean adding in new skills to your CV that you previously left out for space considerations (or because you didn’t feel they were directly relevant), or it can mean changing the sequence of your Key Skills to appeal more to the reader.

The CVs that we write are specifically written to be easily tailored to suit different job applications. We do this by creating a unique profile and key skills section based on your experience and the type of job you are looking for, that you can then amend as needed.

We’ll also talk you through the reasoning behind all of this so that you understand how to make these changes yourself and create a CV that is targeted at a specific application.
