Things to be remembered… Main page is the most noticeable place (include most important/relevant details for job) Avoid spelling mistake (do spell check in computer, then manually-computer will not correct ‘grate’ instead of ‘great’) Use standard font and size Update your CV for each job you apply ( study about company/job you applying for, and write for it ) Avoid photographs/decoration
