Looking for some help to produce a CV


Recommended Posts

Your work experience/qualifications may not be directly comparable to the templates you?ve seen but you can adapt as required. I would suggest a format similar to this example, i.e. start with a brief personal statement of your background and objectives, followed by your work history (most recent first) then academic/qualifications. Another tip - no longer than two sides of A4, preferably one.

If you?ve been out of the workplace for a number of years, the personal statement would be a good place to give your reasons and to demonstrate you?re ready for a new challenge.

I agree with Ruffler and JohnL: you don't need to be overly detailed or fussily chronological whereby every month/year is accounted for as long as you give reasons for 'hollow years'. Depending on the job, work out what qualities and skills you want to stand out. One A4 page or page and a half is seriously advisable. Speaking from lots of experience going through hundreds of CV's and helping others to write theirs.

I'd be happy to help. Suggested services are helpful.

    • That is horrific.  I can't even believe that this a thing.  Really what planet do these so called humans live on...    It actually says that the little fluff balls will be gassed.    It should be illegal.  At least one person took the time to read the letter.   I am shocked.
    • Looking for some advice here! Our little one is sleeping, finally, but still gets upset when going to bed or waking up. Has anyone tried one of the star/galaxy projectors you can get for them at night, and does it distract and sooth them enough to send them to sleep? Recommendations are very welcome here, as there are many different options online, from the suspiciously cheap to eye wateringly expensive. Is it a case of you get what you pay for? Advice gratefully received! LL
    • Wouldn't it be better to have a stall at North Cross Road market with a board explaining what they do rather than obstructing the pavement by "explaining" to people what they do one by one?
    • PETA are on to it,  makes horrendous reading, thanks for bringing it to our attention.💔
