Writing your CV

For this task you need to prepare two types of CV: a traditional CV and a skills-based CV.

The CV hints document contains advice on how to put together your CV. For ideas for different formats, refer to the presentation and the attached files.

If you have not done so before, you may wish to take your two types of CV to be checked by your Careers Adviser if possible.

If you plan to go on to do postgraduate study you may also wish to refer to the academic CV above as this is the standard form of CV used for posts in academia.
