What is a CV?
CV stands for curriculum vitae, which is Latin for Your life’s journey. Your CV is your marketing tool, it is what sells you and your brand, it is an advert of your work to date, selling you and your skills and abilities to your next potential employer!
What should it include?
It should include your personal profile, your profile is the first thing that employers will read, so you need to make sure it is short, sharp and to the point, oh, and don’t forget to tell the employer what type of role you are asking them for. Make sure you stand out, be unique!
Your CV should also include any formal qualifications or professional training that you have completed that is relevant to the role for which you are applying for, always include your higher education if you have any.
What not to include?
Never ever put your national insurance number on your CV, you do not need to give this number, you don’t even need to out your date of birth on there if you do not wish to, if you have a LinkedIn profile (which you definitely should have if you are job searching), make sure to include the link under your contact details – It is inevitable that an employer will look you up on LinkedIn – Make sure that profile also reads well (we can help with this too) !
