Your CV is a working document that should detail your educational, professional and personal achievements. There are many different types of CV that you may use and many different permutations.


  1. Include all contact details - include mobile & home number, email and postal address!
  2. Fill in all necessary dates - do not leave gaps in work or education.
  3. Use bullet points to highlight the main roles in each job. Expand the responsibilities and targets.
