This is the only indication of the CV actually being yours - make your name clear.

02

Should you choose to use a profile, it should not simply highlight who you are but also what you are looking for in a role.

03

Small, cosmetic changes are still important. Don’t forget things like capital letters.

04

You have worked in quite a few different fields - would it be worth including a brief statement as to the kind of work the company is involved in?

A Systems Engineer’s work, for example, can be very different depending upon the type of company they work for.

How do you do this - individually, or perhaps as a group? Think about words that will be a stronger starting point than, ‘Help’.

06

How, and for what purpose?

Quite a lot is just thrown in here. Select what is relevant and expand upon it, don’t simply put down everything without thinking whether it actually relates to the job.

08

Grammatical error

09

Does this go far enough? Are there more details that you can pull out?

Tell me more about what you did in this role.

Be careful of subjective terms. Keep to the facts.

13

Can you be more specific here?

14

Much of the contents below is implicit. Whilst trying to get the most out of a role like this is important, don’t try to oversell things simply to fill space.

15

This area is very wordy. Most of the content can be summed up much more succintly, which will make it easier to read.
