Writing a CV
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. WHAT IS A CV?
Your CV should be: - A well-presented, selling document - A
source of interesting, relevant information - A script for talking
about yourself Remember: The purpose of your CV is not to get you
the job. It is to get you an interview!!
What it should include: Choose a presentation format that
allows you to headline key skills, key achievements or key
attributes. Your employment history should commence with your
current or most recent job and work backwards. Achievements should
be short, bullet- pointed statements and include your role, the
action you took and the result of your action. Hobbies: Drop them
if you run out of space!! Information that clearly demonstrates
your suitability for the role and enhances your chances of being
short-listed should be included near the beginning of the CV
Include details of recent training or skills development events you
have attended which could be relevant. List all your professional
memberships and relevant qualifications.
