Targeted CVs

« Back to CVs index

A targeted CV focuses on a clear, specific job target listing appropriate capabilities and supporting accomplishments. Each job target requires a different CV.

  • You must be clear and specific about your job target, the particular title or occupational field you want to pursue.

  • Capabilities and accomplishments must be stated briefly (one or two lines) and must be directly related to your job target.

  • Your list of capabilities should answer the question: 'What can you do?'

  • Experience and education are included, but not the focus; they should support the overall impression conveyed by the CV.

  • The CV should fit onto no more than two pages with plenty of white space.
