You might have written a CV when you applied for previous jobs or internships or you may never have written a CV before (maybe take some time now to create one using our CV Builder). Either way, the Curriculum Vitae (CV) is your first opportunity to tell potential employers why you’re the right person for the job, so it’s worth spending the time and energy to make it as good as possible for every job application.
Check out our top tips above for making sure yours is ready to be seen by potential employers and is helping you to stand out from the crowd. We’ve reviewed an example CV to help bring our top tips to life.
