Updated 26 April Anyone who has sat down and stared at their screen in an attempt to document their career history knows how difficult writing a CV actually is. However, taking the time to write a strong CV is so important. Not only will it get you noticed, but it will leave a prospective employer wanting to know more about your skills and experience.
Making sure your CV is tailored to the role you want for is an absolute necessity when applying for jobs, but there are general steps you can take when building the structure of your CV to make sure it always looks good and reads well. CVs should be tailored to each role you apply for, but to save time first create a general CV which can be easily adapted for each employer, based on the job description. Make sure to use the phone number and email address that you use most often. Ensure the first area at the top of your CV is a summary of your experience and includes specific applicable experience in relation to the job ad as opposed to generalities. Include a skills section to capture the reader's attention by making it clear what you can offer. Use a brief bulleted list of the skills and key strengths that you possess that are relevant to the role, such as software packages you have worked with.
No matter what your experience level or industry, you can create an attractive CV and secure a job that you really want. A CV short for Curriculum Vitae is a written document that contains a summary of your skills, work experience, achievements and education. You write your CV and send it to potential employers to show them that you are a good match for the job you are applying for.
