  •               In your CV, try to make use of fonts like Helvetica, Arial, or Times New Roman so as to make sure it’s not hard to read . Using a common, clean font may not make your resume the prettiest out there, but it will make it more readable.
  •        Delete the career objective. That is the reason why you are writing a CV in the first place, so adding it up again is not important.Use the space to write more of your accomplishment.
  •        Spell check , and correct any mistakes.
  •       Save your resume as a PDF if it’s in any other format. That way, the formatting won’t get messed up when your resume is opened on a different computer.
  •       Let your file name be your  First Name and Last Name,it makes things easier for hiring managers and ensures your resume doesn't get lost in the crowd.
  •        If you stay in a far place and you desperately need that job,I advice that you remove your address. This is because your employer might put the distance and time into consideration and decide not to give you the job.
  •        Add your LinkedIn profile, as well as any other relevant social media as far as it is professional, it could be twitter, instagram but please do not add your Facebook account.
  •       Make all of your hyperlinks live. Your resume is most likely going to be read on a computer, so making things like your email address, LinkedIn and other social profiles, and personal websites click able makes it easier for the recruiter to learn more about you.
  •        Omit any references to your birth date, marital status, or religion. Since employers hardly consider this when looking at your application, they can’t request it.
  • .       If you’re more than three years out of college, remove your graduation year. Recruiters only really want to know that you got a degree, and you don’t want them to inadvertently discriminate based on your age.
  •        Let your education be below your experience unless you’re a recent graduate. This is because your last one or two jobs are more important and relevant to you getting the job.
  •       Need a little more space to work with,reduce your top and bottom margins to 0.5″ and your side margins to no less than 0.75″. This will keep your resume clean and readable but give you more room to talk about what you've got.
