again to ensure it fits this particular job. Do you
need to add or delete some information?

If your study and experience is in IT,
no-one will consider you for an Accounts
Payable job!
            Design your CV well
Be kind to the Selection Panel.
Your CV must be easy to read.

   Font size – 12 point for text; 14 or 16 for headings

   Underlining – do not underline - use bold
   Boxes, tables – do not use them, not helpful
