The CV review process, remains a key, and in many cases, the first step for recruiters to sieve through hundreds, maybe thousands of applications from candidates.
Because your CV, along with all of the supporting information in your application, determines if you get interviewed, it’s obviously a critical first step that requires your very best shot.
There are no hard and fast rules for writing winning CVs, but the overall aim is to market yourself and your skills to an employer and convince them to call you for an interview or assessment.
While the content of your CV is of utmost importance, the presentation, look and feel also matters a great deal. Some key features that will make your CV stand out include, how well you manage the space on your CV, as well as how you arrange, and prioritize the information on your CV.

There are no hard and fast rules to writing a CV. What works for a particular role may not be best fit for another.
However there are some generic concepts that helps put a good CV together.
As regards dates, they come in handy to show your prospective employer how you've kept yourself active from one year or period to another.
So if you obtained BSc in 2000, for instance, and you are applying for a job in 2003, a prospective employer wants to know what has transpired between 2000 and 2003.
Such gaps should be filled up with details such as work experience, schooling, voluntary/community service etc. The possibilities are endless.

It depends on what role you are applying for, in what organisation, in what industry. A CV that works for a bank job may not fly for a role in a law firm, and most likely not an art gallery.
I'll advise one sticks to black and white if you are skeptical about colours. And even if you chose to add colours to your CV, it should just be a touch, with more of white background and black (or dark) text.
Tables surely help with space management, for those who can use them appropriately.

Carfeel:Sometimes when a potential employer wants to know what you have been doing withing this period after school. Supposing you have not been engaged in anything, is it proper to tell such potential employer that you have been submitting your CV and searching for job?
