  • The Mail Sorter role is a good example of entry-level jobs that do not require any specific or high-level of education. It is therefore advisable to focus more on your previous work experience and skills rather than your educational achievements; place the Personal Profile, Achievements and Employment sections of your CV ahead of the Education section.
  • The length of your CV should be ideally between 1 and 2 pages max. If you’re a school leaver or a person who hasn’t “done” much in their career, then a 1-page CV should suffice, and there is no need to try to fill the 2 pages.

Good Luck!
