Always look at your CV through the eyes of a fickle employer who often has only about 10 seconds to make a decision based on first impressions. Make it clear, concise and remember that it is a marketing tool to make the reader want to call you in for an in-person interview. With banking and finance CVs it is important to avoid unnecessary jargon and to state things as succinctly as possible. A functional CV (as opposed to a chronological one), lists your most important or lauded achievements and experience first, to make them stand out. Also make sure to include any personal interests, which, though irrelevant to the position itself, will make you stand out as a well-rounded, personable candidate.
