A Curriculum Vitae is a summary of your skills, accomplishments, experiences and education designed to capture a prospective employer’s interest.

The CV is a key document to use because a good CV will:
– Get you an interview by intriguing a potential employer
– Encourage the interviewer to focus on your achievements
– Help you to remember the key points that you want to emphasise at interviews
– Leave the interviewer with a clear reminder of what you could do for their organisation
In order to achieve these aims, you must ensure that your CV stands out from other CVs. Your CV must be distinctive and professional. It must create an impact and stimulate interest with the potential employer.
