Quick Reference


A record of achievement—a personal history detailing education, qualifications, previous work experience and achievements, and current job responsibilities. A CV needs to be a concise, yet informative, summary of career achievements. The contemporary approach to constructing a CV is to detail work experience in reverse chronological order, thereby starting with the current job and listing responsibilities and achievements in clear bullet point format. There are numerous companies that now offer ‘professional CV services’—in other words, for a fee, they will design and print your CV so that it (supposedly) stands more chance of being read by prospective employers.

Subjects: Human Resource Management.
