    Hi everyone, i have been looking for my first IT job for about 18 months now and im starting to think that my CV may need changed. Maybe its not laid out right, maybe its full of rubbish...

    Can anyone have a look at it for me and give me a few pointers as to where im going wrong?

    I have been in my current role for 10 years now and never needed a CV since then.

    Thanks VERY much for anyone who can help me out with this.

    Ok... first thing that leaps out is this is YOUR CV, don't write in the third person it just sounds weird.

    I'll take a proper look at the rest later on but that should get you started!

    I actually don't have an issue with third person CVs as long as its use is consistent. Jumping between first and third all the way through is a problem. Here's a few of my thoughts. Haven't had the time to try a rewrite yet. View attachment CV Template response.doc

    I've uploaded a .doc with a load of comments on for you already... or were they terrible suggestions?
