A Curriculum Vitae (CV) is a document which describes your education, work experience and skills you have already had. The purpose of the CV is to attract the employers’ attention. Therefore you need a good and well-structured CV.
A good CV should:
Create a positive impression;
Present your skills and qualities clearly and concisely.
Your CV has to be word processed and should be no more than one page long. A CV must be free of typographical and grammatical errors. The structure of a CV must follow a certain order. It is common to see the phrase CURRICULUM VITAE written in the centre of the page.
Personal details should be shown at the beginning: name, family name, date of birth, address, marital status, phone number, e-mail.
Education and qualifications
List of educational institutions you attended (specifying the dates); subject areas you studied and degrees you got. List qualifications in full.
Mention your present job first and work backwards, descriptions of what exactly you did and were responsible for.
Relevant Information .
Any information which could be helpful (computer skills, languages you speak, driver’s license, hobbies, interests).
Give at least 2 referees: a former employer, a teacher.
Always be honest. It is possible to be creative, but not to lie. Remember, the first impression is the one that matters, so, your CV needs to be perfect!
