Perhaps you’ve been firing off the same CV to HR managers for months without getting any interview offers. Or maybe you’ve been with the same firm for the last ten years and your resume needs a good old overhaul.

One other point to remember is that your CV should be specifically tailored to the job in hand. It’s fine to have a generic template to work from, but alter it for each application so that you have the best possible chance of securing an interview at your preferred place of employment.
