How to write a Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Writing and maintaining an up-to-date CV is very important. A CV markets an individual as professional and it should be written with the aim of differentiating the individual from the rest of the candidates.
A CV should include:
- Name and full address
- A list of your key/core skills/professional memberships
- Relevant work experience
- Interests and hobbies
- At least two references (preferably one professional and one personal)
A CV should be a maximum of two sides of A4 and be written to match the job being applied for. For a candidate applying for an environmental role, it is important to include details of field trips, voluntary work and interests outside of the workplace.
