How to write a knock-out CV?

If you are fresh out of school and are looking for a job, make sure you put extra work into your CV by researching great CV templates.

Your CV should be simple and elegant, in plain black and white. Try to fit all your information on 2 pages, without any fancy borders or decoration. Check your CV for spelling errors before submitting your CV. Convert your CV to a PDF document before sending it to a company or a recruitment agency.

Don’t have enough work experience?

If your CV looks very bland without any work experience, then you can get some work experience by volunteering or asking a company to allow you a 2-week internship, for which you don’t require any salary. Of course, a salary would be great, but remember this is for the benefit of getting some work experience to add to your CV. Choose a workplace close to you so you can keep your travel expenses low during the internship. Most companies would readily agree to give you a non-paid internship if you ask them.
