During my time in the recruitment industry I have seen so many different types of CVs. The CVs that I'm regularly privy to are both really  good and really bad in equal measure. 

I think for candidates, there is a lot of confusion about what should actually be on the CV and how many pages it should be. There seems to be this misconception that the more info on a CV the better but this really isn't the case, it is all about having the "right" information on your CV.

This article which I came across on Recruitment Grapevine from back in October gives some good advice which job seekers will find useful in their quest for a new job.
