Without a well-written CV you will struggle to even get an interview for a job that you are applying for, therefore it is important for every candidate looking for a new job to eradicate any common CV mistakes before they submit their next application.
Your CV, and cover letter, are usually the first correspondence you will have with the recruiter handling your application or the company you are applying for a job with.
