Work experience details kept to a minimum </li></ul><ul><li>3.

  11. 11. Why write CV <ul><li>In an increasingly competitive job market, a well-written resume or CV is a vital component in obtaining the right job and progressing in a career. </li></ul><ul><li>Curriculum Vitae (commonly abbreviated to CV) literally translated means &quot;course of one's life&quot;.  In the UK Curriculum Vitae is the term usually used instead of resume whilst in the US a Curriculum Vitae refers to a fuller version of a resume. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Employers regularly receive many CVs for each available job and so having a professional quality CV is vital if you are not to be filtered out of the hiring process before even having an interview. </li></ul><ul><li> A professional CV is also vital during an interview as, for example, many interviews use your experience as detailed your CV by as a template for the interview, and so having one which focuses on your strengths and achievements is important. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Although there are many professional CV writing services who offer to tell you how to write a CV for a fee it is relatively easy to produce a decent CV yourself with a little effort.  The tips and samples on this site should help start you on the correct path to achieving a quality resume or CV. </li></ul>
  14. 14. CV tips <ul><li>Usually the best CV format is a reverse one in reverse chronological order: </li></ul><ul><li>Basic/contact information (name, address, email address, contact phone number). </li></ul><ul><li>Profile section detailing your experience and areas of proficiency. </li></ul><ul><li>Reverse chronological employment history emphasizing recent achievements. </li></ul><ul><li>Education (Recent graduates may put this at the top). </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Use plain white paper and black ink. Use a clear font, ideally 10/12 point. Make headings bold and use space to break up the page. It makes the reader feel immediately negative towards you if they are confronted by a full page of small, tightly spaced text. Although you may like unusual fonts and may be proud of your large clipart collection, many people will not share your views.  It is better when writing a CV to aim for a smart, professional look rather than a flash multi-coloured masterpiece. </li></ul>
  16. 16. What NOT to do: <ul><li>Don't include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Birthday </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SS# </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ethnic identity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Political affiliation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Religious preference </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hobbies (maybe in students’…depends </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Marital status </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sexual orientation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Place of birth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Photographs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Physical: Height; Weight; and Health. </li></ul></ul>
