9. Add Skills from Outside of Your 9-5 Job on Your CV
Of course you need to have your current or most recent job on your CV, but if you do something outside of work that is relevant to the position, don’t be afraid to highlight it on your CV.
Maybe you make a good side line from a blog or website that you built and run, or maybe you get paid to install secure systems on business websites for a friend.
If the skill is relevant to the job, don’t be afraid to mention it. Many employers prefer a proven record in the industry to a qualification with no experience.
