The Perfect CV

Having a relevant and up-to-date CV is vital to get the job you want. So what makes the perfect CV?

Over the years we've seen every type of CV  - some good, some bad and some frankly a bit odd!

Protocol Education have come up with a few ideas which we feel will make your CV stand out in the crowd - in a good way!:

  • Keep your CV to a maximum of 2 sides of A4
  • Make sure formatting, spelling and grammar are accurate. We have seen a few "Moths" teachers in our time…
  • It is not necessary to include a photo of yourself
  • List your most recent experience first. We’re really pleased you did well in your exams when you were 16 but we’re more interested in your last job and what you have achieved since then!

For more tips take a look at our CV factsheet here.
