A curriculum vitae (CV) provides an overview of a person's experience and other qualifications. In some countries, a CV is typically the first item that a potential employer encounters regarding the job seeker and is typically used to screen applicants, often followed by an interview, when seeking employment. - Curriculum vitae
Before beginning to draft your CV/résumé, read the advert carefully so that you are clear about the specific requirements of the job you’re applying for. It’s important to tailor both your application letter and the CV/résumé to the job in question, focusing on qualifications and experience that are particularly relevant. A CV/résumé should be clear and well structured, with a limited number of main sections, so that an employer can pinpoint the information they’re looking for quickly and easily. - Writing a CV/résumé
The basic format for a CV includes: - How to write a successful CV before applying for a job
- Personal details, including name, address, phone number, email address and possibly any professional social media presence. You no longer need to include your date of birth, owing to age discrimination rules
- Career history, starting with your most recent job first. Include dates and temporary or voluntary jobs if appropriate
- A personal profile which sells yourself and your qualities, tailored towards the job you are applying for
- Achievements from previous jobs that are relevant
- Qualifications and training from previous jobs, with the most recent first
- Interests, if they are relevant and especially if the skills or teamwork concerned are relevant for the job
- Any extra information, such as reasons for a career change or reasons for gaps in career history, such as caring duties
- References, ideally two or more and including a recent employer
