Creating a CV

Creating Curriculum Vitae (CV):

The mistake that is often made is that young adults tend to use the same CV that they created at the end of their Further Education (FE) course for an employer! It is not suitable to simply add your Hiher Education (HE) qualification to your CV, you need to revisit everything that you included from the first time you created your CV. Hopefully, over the past two or three years, your repertoire of interests have increased and you have gained more skills! These are all aspects that need to be developed. When you revisit the first CV you created, have a look to see what you can add to the following sections: education and qualifications; work history and/or experience; relevant skills to the job in question; own interests, achievements or hobbies; and some references (this can be an employer or lecturer).

Take a look at this example CV.
