Minimum Standards for a good CV

Here under the minimum standards a good CV should adhere to to make a good impression:

    1. As a rule of thumb a CV should not be much longer than 5 pages, but not less than one (don’t include certificates unless requested).
    3. A good, recent professional picture of you (head and shoulders) compliments a good CV. There is nothing wrong with a smile either ☺. The passport size photo should be at the top of the first page, or between “Curriculum Vitae of “and “Personal Details”
    4. Remember that all Headings must start in
      Capital Letters. They all start with Capital Letters below:
    5. Personal Details: Your CV must contain your Full Names and Surname (and “also known as”), Date of Birth, more than one Contact No (e.g. Mobile, Work, Home), full Home Address (e.g. 28 Seagull Street, Sea Point, Cape Town, South Africa), Marital Status and No. of Dependants, Drivers License.
    6. Education: Highest Secondary Qualification at which School and Year. All Tertiary Qualifications: Qualification achieved; Where and When.
    7. A summary of Relevant Courses may be listed: Qualification, Where and When.
    8. Work History. Start with your Current/Last Position. List the following information: Position, at which Company or Institution, Nature of Business, Period (from MM/YY to MM/YY – state “current” if you are still employed), Duties and Achievements, Reason for Leaving. As a rule it should cover your whole employment history without omitting information.
    9. References: Name, Surname, Landline & Mobile Numbers of at least 3 Referees and your Association to the Referee. You may say “References on Request”, but have them ready when requested. Please include referees able to comment on your performance in a work environment over the last 5 years.
    10. A Cover Letter may be included, stating what functions you can perform best and which positions you would like to be considered for, in what area/industry.
    11. When mailing your CV, send it in an accepted format e.g. a MS Word document so that the recipient can easily open the document. Save it as CVSurnameNameDate for easy identification and proper version control.
    12. And lastly – PROOF READ YOUR CV BEFORE SUBMITTING. Put it through a spell checker. And then read it one more time! CVs with spelling and grammatical errors are usually rejected with disdain – one spelling mistake
