How to write a CV
A CV or Curriculum Vitae is:
Your Life History
Your Job History
A CV or curriculum vitae is a marketing tool. With your
CV you will be able to promote yourself. Imagine the CV as being a
brochure that will list the benefits of a particular service.
The service being your time and skills! When writing a CV look at it
from your employers point of view. Would you stand out against the
competition (the other candidates) and would the manager want to talk
you for a possible job? You have to ask yourself these questions when
writing your CV or curriculum vitae.
Networking and interviewing are essential for your job hunt and your CV
is just the first step in the job search. However a CV will be your
first contact with potential employers and will open the door. If you
are invited for an interview you would then be in a position to explain
and expand on what is in your CV.
A CV is an essential tool in your job search. When applying for a
vacancy you generally first have to send your CV to present yourself to
the prospective employer.
