Tips for a Tip-Top Technical CV.

Technical Recruitment Agency - Precision People

If you’re looking for a new technical engineering job, it’s important to update your CV inline with the most relevant formatting and up-to-date information. Whether you are a recent graduate looking for your first role or an experienced engineer who hasn’t updated their CV for some time, our advice below will help make your CV ready to send to your technical recruitment consultant.

Top Tier Talent

As a technical recruitment agency, we scour hundreds of CV’s daily. For that reason, we speak from experience when we say; the top of your CV is the most important. As the first thing we cast our eyes over, the opening sentences should contain the most relevant information so that your CV is not dismissed. We recommend including contact information and your current job title at the top, making it easy for recruiters to see who you are, your main skills and how to get in touch with you quickly.

Break It Down

According to research, when a technical recruitment agency allocates your CV to a consultant, you’ve only got 7 seconds to impress. With this in mind, chunking your skills into manageable categories is key to showcasing your technical ability. Whether it’s organising your roles by sector or creating a sub-section of skills related to mechanical, electrical and PLC experiences, ensure that your different areas of expertise are clearly highlighted.

Machine Magic

Once your CV has made it through our rigorous technical recruitment consultancy, it is likely that it will be reviewed by an engineering manager, perhaps one who has never worked in your industry. Make it easy for them to spot why you are an ideal candidate by including any machinery you have worked on in the past, as this is a good way to detail your transferable skills.
