REMEMBER YOUR DATES

Employers want to see what you’ve been doing with your time. Include the month and year you started and ended your roles and if there are any gaps be willing to explain them.

PERSONAL DETAILS

Your resume needs to be easy to read without lots of logos and pictures cluttering the page. You may have excellent digital and artwork skills but this can be demonstrated at a later stage.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Your resume needs to be easy to read without lots of logos and pictures cluttering the page. You may have excellent digital and artwork skills but demonstrated this at a later stage.

LITTLE ERRORS

Proof read, not just for spelling errors but also the layout. Keep it consistent – font style & size, page breaks, headings - If you’ve used bullet points don’t switch to numbers later down the page.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Not everyone will know what you do so explain what the company does. Add a job description to highlight the key factors of your role, then you can go into more specifics.
