CV Tips
A vital part of your CV is your work history. Always include ‘Reasons for Leaving’ each position and company. Be honest and see them as a selling tool and an opportunity to show the reader who you are and what you stand for.

It’s helpful to include a brief description of what the main function of the company you worked at was, to ensure that the reader of your CV puts your responsibilities into context

There is no right or wrong way to write a CV, but there are some common sections you should cover. These include: a tailored motivation for the position (summary of your career and skill set), personal and contact information; education and qualifications (with dates and institutions); work history (Company Name, relevant industry, your position, the person you reported to (and their position within the company), your responsibilities, your achievements with the company and your reason for leaving), your interests/ hobbies and personal achievements and two references (with contact details), of those your directly reported to in
previous positions.

Always add figures to your CV when you are speaking about changes you have made to the organisation. E.g.: “I increased sales
significantly” is great but “I increased sales by 78% or by R247 000.00” is much much better
