A-Z of The Best Words and Phrases to Use in Your CV

One of the hardest things when writing a CV is avoiding repetition of words.

Please find a list of words and phrases that you may find useful in compiling your CV.

Remember though – whichever you decide to use, you will need to be able to explain them at interview!

Keep your bullet points brief, but vary them in length to make it easier on the eye.

Most important of all –  this is your brochure and NOT your autobiography.

Good luck and have fun with this!
