Transcript: A document that summarises your academic and work history A written description of your work experience, educational background and skills Personal profile Your name should stand out clearly at the top of your CV. Perhaps make it a larger font size and make it bold. Include your home address, contact numbers and your private email address Update this information when or if it changes Interests and additional information Your CV needs to be concise and easy to read - keep things simple but appropriate Keep all information as short and punchy as possible - maximise the space you have. Put yourself in the position of the reader of your CV - if it not clear to you, it won't be to someone else, and arguably more importantly, if you find your own CV dull and boring, the person reading it will be bored with it too. Make sure you give the name of each school or college, the dates you attended and the qualification you obtained and the grade/predicted grade Depending upon your age and the stage of your career you may want to put the work experience section of your CV before your education. The choice is your's and you'll need to decide what is most relevant for the job you are applying for. If you are just leaving education or have little work experience your qualifications are the most important thing you have to offer. Make sure you cover them in detail. Make sure what you add here is relevant to the job e.g. add that you have a driving license if you have one. Keep it short and positive and maybe use bullet points if that makes it easier There is no need to add a date of birth If you include information about your interests and avoid activities or statements that are passive or vague e.g. "I enjoy watching TV" - that's not very proactive! Be a bit specific; a similar interest to an employer could get you an interview Look critically and objectively at everything you include - if you can't immediately see why it is there, take it out. Ask someone else to look at your CV - very helpful, especially if they know something about the career you're looking at. Make sure the information is up to date and relevant to the job you are applying for. Don't include anything that happened more than five years ago - unless it is still relevant. Employment What is the purpose of a CV? The aim of this presentation is to provide you with some answers to these questions and give you some useful tips when preparing your own CV Companies may ask for a CV when you apply for a job You may be asked to send a CV to accompany an application form CV's are also a good way of keeping information about yourself in one place so if you do need to fill in an application form you have all dates and information on hand Your CV also gives you the chance to inform an employer what you can bring to the role There are three types of statement you could make here: Personal profile - A short statement of around 30 words outlining your key personal characteristics Career profile - A short outline of your career highlights/work experience Career objective - A statement about the specific career or employment position you are seeking (this is useful if you are changing careers) I can do this job and I would fit in well If you have had lots of work experience or jobs, only go into detail about those that are most relevant natalie Include all qualifications and list starting with your most recent This is where all contact information needs to be put What should a CV look like? What are they? What should you include in them? What are their purpose? Your CV is a chance for you to communicate this message to potential employers An employer will not have time to wade through pages of information The information you include on your CV needs to be concise and relevant You need to choose the appropriate information to include on your CV for each job There are no real rules about what a CV should look like or how it's set out. The key is to imagine what the employer would like to see in a CV. A few things to remember: Your CV should be word processed in black ink Using a clear font such as Arial or Times New Roman CV's should not be longer than 2 pages of A4 Information about yourself should be presented clearly and logically in a style that is easy to follow This is where you highlight your main skills, qualifications, achievements and work experience HELLO, I AM... What is a CV? References I AM HAPPY TO HELP! This section is very much up to your personal preference Start with your current or most recent job and work backwards. Add a short description of your responsibilities. List some of your key achievements in that role e.g. top seller, increased sales etc. Keep what you write as short and punchy as possible and avoid using "I". Include details of any work experience you have undertaken Highlight how these experiences are relevant to the job you are applying "CV" stands for Curriculum Vitae and can be defined as: The main message you are trying to get across

Now you can make any subject more engaging and memorable
