I have written hundreds of CVs.

This is after you have all of the information you need to hand, such as dates, titles, and achievements reached in each role.

What makes your CV look attractive?

Instead of just listing your past responsibilities, make your CV stand out by emphasizing your results, using quantifiable data to show your accomplishments.

So for example, instead of saying “I helped to increase social media engagement for Company X”, write “I increased social media engagement by 38% for Company X”.

Can resume be 2 pages?

A resume can be two pages, but most should be one page. That’s true for entry-level candidates and those with less than 5 years’ experience. If the job requires Elon-Musk-level accomplishments, or you can’t cram your achievements on one page, write a two page resume.

Should I list all my jobs on a resume?

You don’t need to include every job on your resume. Highlight jobs that demonstrate your experience, skills, and fit for the role. You can also omit jobs that are more than 10 to 15 years old, to avoid age discrimination.
