Updating or creating your CV? We spoke to CV expert Jo Hazlitt from CV Edge to understand the elements you need to include in your professional CV.
It’s easy to let your CV become outdated, or you may not even have one. Jo creates professional CV’s for everyone from school leavers, to those returning to work and CEO’s across a wide range of industries.
Her advice is one CV doesn’t fit all jobs; you need to tailor your CV specific to each job application.
“New Zealanders don’t know how to promote themselves, they are quite humble. My job is to promote their personality, experience and qualifications for the job they are targeting.”
Jo recommends the length of your CV should be 2 pages, “keep it short and to the point” and to use bullet points for clarity.
