Explain Any Gaps
Unexplained gaps in your work history can be a red flag for a lot of Recruiters and failing to adequately explain them could stand in the way of your next role. If you have a sound reason for the gap, such as taking a sabbatical to go traveling, it will always be best to include a brief explanation in your CV or cover letter to answer any questions the reader may have.
Triple Check Your Spelling & Grammar
Misspelling and grammatical errors are often a frequent reason why CVs are rejected. If you’re not treating your resume with the time, care and attention it deserves, your reliability and accuracy may be questioned. Your CV is a professional representation of your skills so always triple check it for mistakes and ask someone to read over it before you submit it to a Recruiter.
