Presenting your CV: to capture the interest of the recruiter and make your CV easier to read, pay attention to the presentation of your CV and make it as clear as possible.

Follow these essential rules:

  • Well-spaced and consistent style
  • Titles and sub-titles should be clearly distinguished
  • Sections should be clearly identified – lines, boxes, capitals etc
  • 3 pages maximum
  • Margins minimum 2 cm
  • Font and size: 10 points minimum, Arial and Tahoma are the most commonly used

Wording of your CV:

Be clear and concise, get straight to the point and delete any superfluous words. Use short phrases.

Advice for working:
  • Give your CV a title – “Junior Business Analyst”, “Qualified Business Analyst”, “Business Systems Analyst” etc
  • Use bullet points instead of long-form phrases – “Drawing up list of requirements” rather than “I drew up the list of requirements”
  • Don’t include more than one idea per phrase.
  • Use action verbs and gerunds – co-ordinate, evaluate, support, act, implement, transmit…
  • validating, creating, installing, setting up….
  • Use technical terms – “data mapping”, “business intelligence tools”, “detailed functional specifications”,” object-oriented modelling”, etc
  • Write dates clearly. Don’t specify days. Months are only relevant in cases of brief periods.
  • Avoid unnecessary details: experience which is irrelevant to the post applied for, languages you don’t speak well, knowledge of irrelevant software, student experience if you have professional experience in business analysis, etc
