A CV is a brief account of your career so far. It’s your chance to talk about you.
- Don’t title it CV - it’s obvious what the document is, but do remember to include as many contact details as possible (address, home/mobile phone numbers and email address).
- No more than two sides of A4, in a clear typeface.
- Avoid long paragraphs. Use short sentences and bullet points to keep it simple and concise.
- Start with your recent careers experience and work backwards. Focus on the most important and relevant aspects, competencies, responsibilities and duties.
- If you’ve just left school, list your achievements in sports, hobbies and projects. What you have achieved is just as important as your responsibilities.
- Always check spelling and punctuation. Ask a friend to proof read your CV for you and to provide constructive comments.
I like the interaction with clients.
