CV Research

It was suggested  this week we looked into cv’s for the industry! What and how to write something down on paper. Below is some cool websites that helped me understand and also some creative ways other’s have created theirs and real cv’s examples;

Your CV should be clear and relevant as all your work when preparing for interviews or employability. Always remember;

  • to add your contact information in a place that won’t be over looked.
  • Give a brief description of what you did when listing previous experience.
  • Chronological order – latest at the top with dates
  • Your personal statement should be directed towards whatever company you are sending your cv to
  • Mention what skills you have and what software you have experience using, possibly a rating system.
  • Leave out hobbies
  • Mention any awards

Questions where asked if we should mention our education, GCSE’S/A Level’s to fill the space of lack of experience most of us have or don’t have…

    Creative CVs are best when they demonstrate the skills you claim to have in them. That said, many recruiters don’t like them for a variety of reasons. So before applying to a company, research employees’ CVs to see what worked there.
