    Hi All,

    I've been updating my CV and trying to sort it out as I'd like to start applying for some jobs in the next few months along with continuing my MCDST. I got my A+ in December. Its just tough writing the CV. I feel like I'm banging my head off a brick wall at the moment. I've attached it, any suggestions on how I could improve it would be most helpful!! I've had a look around online and at the pinned posts which have all been helpful. I'm just looking at the standard entry level support job, I'm just struggling with the experience. :(

    Hi Im in the same position as you at the moment, however trying the same thing but in france!

    for what its worth here are some suggestions. Hope it helps.

    - keep it to one page if you can- increase the margins etc
    - cut the description, and any repetitions in the cv.. if you mentioned you are a team player once, thats enough!
    -play up your degree and the skills you have learnt i.e harden up sentenses like

    • Learnt basic skills in C and Java programming through designing and building object oriented programs ...

    you could just put

    • C and Java programming through designing and building object oriented programs

    - I think the volunteering work makes you sound interesting so put that nearer the top if you can

    -- get rid of the profile statement... your skills and current experiences speak for themselves.

    o.k gonna shut up now and start looking for more jobs myself lol

    hope it helps
