We’ve had a whole lot of Runner position CVs in recently, probably because it’s the end of the academic year, and new graduates are making their first steps into paid work. So, if you’re looking for a Runner CV example, over the next few posts I’m going to giving some tips to help you.

Tip One: One Page

While you’ve probably read that CVs need to be two pages, you’ll have little experience to fill two pages. You’re better off having a short and succinct one page CV, rather than spreading it thinly over two. It shows you recognise you don’t have much experience! People won’t be interested in your GCSE results, just post-16 qualifications.

Concentrate on what work you have done, and how the experiences have shaped your working life. Think about the kind of jobs you’re going to be asked to do as a Runner? What are you responsibilities going to be? Once you’ve worked that out, you should write your CV to show you have those skills.
