Get your CV up to scratch for part time NN1 jobs

The job market in the United Kingdom right now is as hotly contested as it has ever been. Regardless of the fact that there are dozens of big name job sites out there, most vacancies will see a huge amount of applications as job hunters do their best to get themselves back into the work force. With the economy still struggling, this is a trend that could continue for quite some time, so it's very important that you understand the basics of how to make your CV stand out from the crowd in order to give yourself the best chance of getting the part time NN1 jobs you really want.

It's important that you think of your CV as being your first contact with potential employers, and as they say, first impressions are everything. The last thing you want to do is have errors anywhere on your CV. Not only does this reflect badly on your writing abilities, but it also shows that you lack the desire to ensure that everything you do is to the absolute highest standard.

All word processors these days feature spelling and grammar checks, so make sure to use them! There's no point handicapping yourself in the eyes of employers simply because your spelling isn't up to par.

It's also vitally important that the content is the best it can be. Many people make the mistake of including every job they've ever worked in, whether it's relevant to the position they're applying for or not. This is unnecessary and employers appreciate the fact that you have left out anything that isn't relevant.

This doesn't mean that you should only include things that are directly related to the kind of job you're applying for. It's also important that you can give examples of how other jobs might help you to perform your new role better than others. Use examples of responsibilities you held that you think might be relevant.
