When writing a curriculum vitae, it’s important to include all the right information so the hiring manager can see, at first glance, why you are a strong candidate for the job.
What information should a CV include?
– Personal details. Most CVs start with these but take care to avoid superfluous details, such as religious affiliation, children’s names and so on.
– Education and qualifications. Take care to include the names of institutions and dates attended in reverse order, university results before school results.
– Work experience. The most widely accepted style of employment record is
the chronological CV. Career history is presented in reverse date order starting
with most recent.
– Skills. Include computer skills and foreign language skills and any other recent training that is relevant to the position being applied for.
– Hobbies and interests. Keep this section short.
– Referees. These can simply be “Available on request”.
How long should a CV be?
A good CV should ideally cover no more than two pages and never more than three. The content should be clear, structured and relevant.
at first glance – na první pohled
to avoid – vyhnout se
superfluous – přebytečný
affiliation – příslušnost
