Your CV is of vital importance if you wish to present yourself successfully in the job market. A good CV will substantially boost your chances of securing an interview by marketing relevant skills, experience and value to a potential
employer. There are no right or wrongs when it comes to writing a CV as each one will be as individual as the person writing it. Do not copy standard CV samples! Your CV should be your own and reflect your talents and personality. However, it is important to follow a few basic principles to ensure you present the information in a clear, concise and effective manner.
Personal details – include your name, address and phone numbers. If your name does not obviously show if you are male or female, please make this clear. Add an email address if it is checked regularly. Details of your nationality and date of birth would be appreciated but are not compulsory.
Work experience – list your work experience using short, straightforward sentences. You list your most recent experience first and continue from there. Make sure you give the name of your employer, job title, and most importantly, your tasks and responsibilities. Part-time work experience should also be included.
As well as describing the job, point out any additional qualities gained during your employment. For a clean, well-organized look, use bullet points.
Education – Briefly list the details of your qualifications. Highest level of attainment/ current degree should be listed first. Include type of degree, name of University, location and (anticipated) date of graduation. List other degrees, relevant higher education coursework, ongoing professional education/training courses and study abroad.
Skills – include specific skills such as IT skills and languages. Make sure you include your current level of spoken/written fluency as well.
References – it is customary, although not obligatory, to provide names and contact details of two referees. Graduates and those with limited work experience can list college lecturers, teachers or managers during work experience. Be sure to contact your referees in advance, so they will be prepared.
Hobbies – details of hobbies is optional. It can provide your employer with a more complete picture of your personal qualities but do not overdo it. Do not use a long list of hobbies to cover up a lack of work experience.
