This reporter scored Fraser his job at FE Week, and is a prime example of how a targeted and paired back approach really can work. Rather than focusing on filling up the whole page, this CV instead gives the experiences Fraser really wants to highlight room to breathe, meaning they’re the first thing hiring managers will focus on.

You’ll also notice how this CV is filled with examples of pieces of work Fraser has done – he doesn’t just say he wrote stories, he lists and links them, and he’s also picked examples which are relevant to the job he’s applying for.

Even when you get down to the education section (at the bottom and rightly so), this CV is tailored – rather than talking about modules of his degree, Fraser instead highlights his work at student publications and student radio, showing one clear story all the way through.
