In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.
A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have, rather than our work history.
Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.
Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:
- It has to be very neat and formal so the employer will be more inclined to employ you.
- If it is your first job you should make a skills based CV, because you have little to no job experience.
- You always need to make sure the spelling and punctuation are correct, this can be the difference between getting the job and not getting the job.
