CV Basics

« Back to CVs index

Your CV needs to be:

  • Clear - you want the information to be understood straight away.
  • Concise - you shouldn't give irrelevant information.
  • Well laid out - so that the information given can be quickly found.

To achieve this you could:

  • Use clear headings to separate the various sections of the CV.
  • Use bullet points rather than writing paragraphs or long sentences.
  • Keep the CV short - preferably no more than two sides of A4.


  • Your CV is an advertising document for yourself.
  • Make sure you don't overlook your skills and experience.
