Balancing CVs 'can be difficult'

It can be difficult to "get the balance right" when people are creating new CVs, an expert has advised, though this aspect is crucial if candidates are to enhance their employment prospects.

According to Peter Panayotou, senior consultant at The Write Stuff, there are two ends of the spectrum when it comes to CVs – people who blow their own trumpet and make outlandish claims, and others who fail to sell themselves effectively.

The key is to find a happy medium where the individual is highlighting their skills and achievements without fabricating their attributes.

Mr Panayotou said the best option sometimes is for job candidates, including sales recruitment hopefuls, is to get a second opinion or ask for assistance with creating and tailoring their CV.

Recently, Becci Newton, senior research fellow at the Institute for Employment Studies, said that people who are struggling in the labour market at the moment may find that taking part in some voluntary work could give their CV an extra dimension and set them apart from other candidates.
