Make sure you set your margins wide enough to allow space around the borders of the page and if including a footer, be sure there is enough space between it and the body of your CV.
Recruiters and employers frequently scan CVs for key words and if the right words don’t appear in your CV, you are likely to be passed over for someone who’s taken the time to include them. Keywords should be included throughout your CV, in your skills summary and role descriptions.
Your skills summary can include both hard skills and soft skills required for the types of roles you are applying for. Hard skills are those practical, professional or technical skills you possess such as computer skills for example. Soft skills include any interpersonal or people skills you have including communication skills, conflict resolution, team building, creative and strategic thinking and influencing skills.
