How to write a CV?

A CV (curriculum vitae) allows you to summarize your education, skills and experience and helps you market yourself to employers. CVs are commonly two or three pages long, depending on the number of entries and the chosen layout.

When writing a CV, there are a few helpful rules you should follow:

  • Match your CV to the position. Make sure that you highlight your education, work experience, and skills to relate to the particular industry or job. For example, if you are applying for a job in education, you might want to put your teaching experience at the top of your CV.
  • You can also include keywords from the job description in your CV. This will show the employer that you are an ideal fit for the position.
  • Use a template. You may want to use a template to structure your CV. This will give your application a clear structure, which will help the employer to quickly see your qualifications and experience.
  • You need to thoroughly edit your document to make sure there are no spelling or grammatical errors and that the format is consistent. For example, if you use bullet points in one job description, use the same bullet points in all the remaining job descriptions as well.
