The layout of your CV is crucial to your chances of landing interviews, as employers and recruiters take just 30 to 60 seconds to decide who they want to interview. In this article, you'll learn how to improve your CV layout and what information you must include.

Please see our free CV examples if you want to see actual examples of how Bradley CVs lays out a CV - these were produced by our professional CV writing service.
