- Your CV
Your CV (Curriculum Vitae) is a summary of your academic and work history. The CV is your first chance to show any prospective employer that you have the required skills and experience to do the job which you are applying for and that you are the right person for the job. It is therefore vital that your CV highlights your skills and achievements
If your CV does not communicate that your skills, experience, and achievements would make you a suitable candidate for the job which you are applying for, in most cases, your job application will not progress any further. As such, a well written and presented CV can be considered to be a passport to an interview.
There are a number of ways of presenting your CV and there are many differing opinions about what is the ideal CV. There are however some common principles and guidelines for CV content and presentation which most recruitment professionals would agree upon. Our CV Builder Consultants help you create a CV in bite size chunks. You can also get advice on applications forms, covering letters and interviews.
