What exactly is a CV?

A CV is a written document used to show an individual’s skills and experience when applying for a job. A CV is sometimes referred to as a Curriculum Vitae or a resume.

What is the purpose of a CV?

A CV is a way of highlighting relevant skills, experience and qualifications to an employer or recruitment agent. Employers and recruitment agents often request a CV as part of the recruitment process. The information contained in a CV can be of use when deciding whether or not a person is suitable for a particular job or organisation.

What should I include in a CV?

There is no standard CV format but it is likely that an employer will want to see:

  • Contact information – including name, address, telephone number and email address.
  • A brief summary (2 to 3 pages) detailing your relevant skills, experience and qualifications.
