A CV is only as good as what you put in it. Recruiters browsing a CV database use specialist software to search through it. If your CV or its text is formatted in a particular way then it can stop the search tool from finding certain important keywords. This is bad as it will mean that your CV will not turn up in any results, and potentially be missed by employers.

Here are a list of things that you should avoid using in your CV:
1. Underlining text
2. Italics
3. Photos
4. Excessive use of colours
5. Unusual fonts

All of the above can stop software from scanning and searching your resume and picking up searched for keywords.
