10 CV tips you probably haven’t heard before

Having a well-crafted CV can be the key to getting your foot in the door at the company of your dreams.

However, figuring out how to make your CV fully representative of your experience and also stand out is easier said than done, according to jobs website Glassdoor.

Glassdoor found that hiring managers and recruiters generally only spend about seven seconds reading your CV before deciding whether to move forward or not.

While most people know the basics of how to put together a decent work history, below Glassdoor outlined some tips you probably haven’t heard before that can help your CV stand up to the seven-second test.

1. Only include your address if it works in your favour

If you’re applying to positions in the city or town you already live in, then go ahead and include your address.

In this case, it lets the hiring manager know you’re already in the area and could theoretically start working right away.

But if you’re targeting jobs in another area and you’d need to move in order to start working, it’s probably a good idea to leave your current address off of your CV.

Why? Recruiters are sometimes less excited to interview candidates from another city, since they often require relocation fees.
