Starting to Think about Your CV
Part of the CVs For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)
Get some paper and a pen or pencil, or grab your laptop and start making some notes for yourself before launching into writing your perfect CV (Curriculum Vitae):
Think about the type of job you want to nab.
Write your key skills such as IT, languages or academic achievements.
List the dates and titles of your previous positions (use years; miss out the months).
Make a note of any additional information the employer might want to know, such as your climb on Kilimanjaro or the charity you volunteer for.
