A bigger percentage of companies usually require you to apply for a job opening by sending a CV, so it is best for you to create a good impression when writing down a CV. Here's a look at four key things that a CV should have;

1) Try to relate the skills you possess with the job- Companies always look out for a candidate whose skills are relevant to the job needed. Let's say they are out to recruit a marketer, they would probably seek a vocal, outgoing candidate as opposed to a reserved one. So please tailor your skills to the job advertised.

2) Let your CV be easily read- Employers don't have the time to sit down and read through an eye-sore CV. They probably have less than a minute to gauge whether your CV is good or not. Make your CV 'pleasant to the eyes" by using bullets, use of white space, clearly illustrated points and remember to write relevant information only.

3) Include interests that add value to a Company - You should always strive to mention interests that bring out certain good qualities that companies like e.g. leadership abilities, teamwork etc. A good example would be to write " was chairman of the finance club in university"

Remember to always point out what value you would bring to a company in a legible and your CV will stand out.
