The first page is critical

  • Your first page should summarise all of the key information about you and why they should interview you. The rest of the CV provides the backup information, which they might read when they come to interview you.
  • It is unlikely that your CV will be read cover to cover, at most the first review will skim through your first page, so all of your key information needs to jump out.
  • Remember, a CV will only get you a job interview. It isn’t a document that needs to provide your exact history, it is a sales document to help frame how your experience applies to the role you are interested in.
  • The introduction, your key skills and your experience summary should all fit on the first page.
  • If education and qualifications are your strong suit, then pull these to the front page.

Australian CV should be a minimum of 4 pages

For most mid-level roles in Australia there is an expectation that you will have sufficient experience to fill 4 pages.
