Never make the CV longer than two pages - if you are
unable to make the CV shorter than this then you will highlight
your inability to summaries and get to the point. Employers
are likely to be receiving many CVs and they are unlikely to
want to read five pages of rambling text. Get to the point quickly.
include irrelevant details - especially if you are just
starting out it is tempting to try and fill the space with anything
you can think of. However it is better to be clear. It is becoming
fashionable to reduce CVs to just one page. This may not be useful
if you are well into your career, but if you are just starting
off then it can be helpful to get to the point with you basic
details, education and most relevant work experience.
Avoid abbreviations and jargon - this will only annoy
the person reading the CV if you include jargon and abbreviations
that they are not familiar with. It shows a lack of appreciation
for your audience.
