When creating a CV, make sure you save it in a versatile format that everyone is able to open. Here at GF we would recommend saving it in document format which is .doc as it's the most common. Saving your CV in this format means you can be sure no one will have any problems opening it or integrating it with a database that employers or recruiters can search - using .pdf files can create problems.
Make sure you name your CVs sensibly like 'Mark Smith CV - Consultant.doc' so the employer or recruiter knows whose it is among potential others. Never leave the file name of your CV unlabelled such as 'final cv.doc' or 'cv edit5.doc' as this looks very unprofessional.
Small tips like these that I am sharing will hopefully prove fruitful during your transition and beyond, but if you have any tips on a topic I’m discussing, please share!
