CV Basics

At its most fundamental level CV should tell the employer something about you, and what you can do for the employer. If you don't say at least this much then it really defeats the object and it is highly unlikely that you would get a positive response from your job application.

This help page should give you an idea of CV basics. However, if you really want your job applications to succeed, then you really need to go well beyond basic level.

More information on CV basics is given below

Typically a CV should include your contact details together with details of your education, work experience, qualifications, and skills.

This is really the bare minimum. However, in addition to this many people include more information including amongst other things work achievements, competencies, a personal profile and personal details.

This advice on CV basics is based on CV book extracts by one of our senior consultants, and is not for copy or distribution.
