A good CV demonstrates you have the right skills for the job in a concise, well-organised, and error-free document.
Employers don’t have a lot of time to review job applications, so you’re significantly more likely to impress them if your CV addresses their needs at a glance. A good CV should begin with a professional personal statement that outlines your skills and key accomplishments in 2–5 lines:
Travel industry sales professional with 5+ years of experience hitting high targets in fast-paced, energy-fuelled environments. Excel at CRM data collection and providing outstanding transaction support while building a loyal customer base of repeat shoppers. Seeking to contribute to Oceans Away’s exemplary growth as your next Senior Sales Representative.
Continue the strong start to your CV by adding concise and well-targeted work experience and education.
For each relevant job you previously held, write 3–5 bullet points outlining your responsibilities and key accomplishments.
Lastly, check your CV thoroughly for spelling and grammar mistakes. An error-free job application shows the employer that you’re thorough and detail-oriented — exactly the kind of person they would trust as their next hire.
