    Think this was fantastic. Have been struggling with my cv for so long and am going into work properly so I need to get one done. Never written a cover letter so even though it was short I know what to write and can get one done. Thank you so much, it was very informative and I now feel confident enough to write a cv 🙂 Thanks dude

    Hi Graham,

    This is very interesting information. Looking at a cv from the perspective of the recruiting manager's viewpoint is the golden nugget, even though common sensical but so easy to miss.

    I appreciate the effort you have taken in making this information, rather knowledge availalbe for one and all without any cost. Thank you!

    I have a question on how does one show sabbaticals, voluntary or forced. My wife moved to australia a year ago, just after I got married to her. She didn't wanna live alone in a new country, so i migrated from my country to australia and left my Project manager job. The work rights for me came after a year of relocation and i haven't been working all this while as i wasn't allowed up until now. Now i am looking for opportunities.

    How to show these gaps in the CV. Also should we say anything about these in the cover letter…?

    Kind Regards.

    Hi Graham,
    I've recently finished my study at university in a tv & video production degree and I've been applying constantly for work the past 2 months. Any chance I can send over my C.V so you can have a look?

    Thank you Mark from USA, have not done this for 30 years (age55) . ? Had worked in auto industry for 21years at different dealers, can you just list industry and manager titles without each store; to shorten list?
    Thank You

    You said to list college courses and grades but how many courses / grades do you list? A college graduate takes dozens of courses to graduate and it would be too long to list every class and grade…wouldn't it?

    Thanks for that very helpful. Is it two pages or both sides of a page of A4 to do a CV? Would you include an age? And finally I have collected ' To whom it concerns' type of references in my portfolio. Where should I place these in my portfolio and are they valuable in the eyes of a new employer? Thank you for any help :-)
