Using concise bullet points will draw the HR manager’s eye to the key elements of your CV without them having to trawl through lengthy paragraphs to see whether you fit the job description or not. Here are some tip to ensuring that your bullet points are strong, easy to read and illustrate the impact you could have if you were offered the role.
Once you’ve written out your bullet points, take a break before coming back to them. Do they give a rounded overview of your skills and experience? Can you cut out any unnecessary waffle? Have you used the same words over and over again when you could use a decent alternative? Does your list fulfil the key criteria of the job description? Keep refining your bullet points until you’re completely happy with them.
