Recruiterz Agency - Placing Talent

example cv graduate 


Your Name (in the header - just first and last will do)


 Professional Profile

Two sentences on my studies and their relevance to the role in one short paragraph.

Two sentences on where I am right now.

Two sentences on where I am headed.

This section takes the recruiter / hirer through your studies and future direction and can be tailored to include keywords that the client is likely to be looking for (check the advert). People often make the mistake of putting their contact details here but this is a waste of the top 1/3rd of your cv or the power area.

Qualifications

Degree                   Where                       Date                           Grade

A levels                  Where                       Date                            How many A-D

GCSE’s                  Where                       Date                            How many A-D 

Avoid big long lists. The above information is plenty - if the client needs more detail they will ask.

Key Skills

Three key skills with some buzz words after which relate again to the role applied for:-

  • Account Management; kpi’s setting and delivery, client review meetings
  • New Business; cold calling, persuasiveness, closing deals, CRM management
  • Team management; training, development, disciplinary

This section is for impact and will give a concise snapshot of your immediate value without needed to repeat it throughout your CV in each job you have done. This particular section allows you to keep your CV short and concise. Professional profile and key skills may be all the recruiter / hirer reads before deciding to read on so make it amazing, concise and relevant to the role.

Career History

Job Title                           Company                   Dates in format Sep 07 – Oct 12

A short paragraph which is punchy and is a short summation of what you achieved whilst in post in this role. Emphasis can be made after your two sentences with some follow up bullet points full of achievements, results and of course reasons why you would add value to a future business.

  • Sales increased from £9m to £12.5m per annum
  • GP improvement from -£500,000 to +£750,000
  • Reduction in staff turnover from 56% to under 13%
  • Client satisfaction scores increased from 52% up to 93%
  • Don’t go over 5 bullet points or people stop reading – four is perfect, five maximum

This first role is likely to be the last thing that the hirer / recruiter reads before making a decision to read further. You may have a great cv beyond this but if you haven’t made an impact by now you are likely to be declined and disappointed.

Hobbies and Interests

Sports, Clubs, Memberships – Anything that shows you as a rounded individual. Sometimes you can cover things off that the client is looking for in your hobbies and interests / accolades and achievements that you don't have work experience of in your main cv. This section is particularly important for graduates as degrees are more common than in the past. You will need to show how you stand out from other graduates.
