What should I include in my CV?
This is a question we are asked often and the biggest problem we have when answering it is that there is no one right answer. At times it may be best to focus and promote your qualifications, at other times the achievements you have gained in your career are more important.
The content, style and focus of your CV can depend on a number of other factors including:
What stage of your career are you at? eg School Leaver, Graduate, Experienced
What type of jobseeker are you? eg First job, return to work, career changer, career developers
How you will use your CV? eg Applying for a specific job, posting to an online database, registering with an agency, internal application
