Creating a CV
Definition - The right CV gets you an interview!! Your CV is your passport to a job interview and gives you the opportunity to make a good first impression. A CV is your first opportunity to “sell” yourself to a potential employer.
|What to include in your CV?||What NOT to include in your CV?|
|Full name, address, telephone numbers and a professional email address tip: to create new email address solely for job searching as this will make it easier to track.

||Words that are too casual
|Education and qualifications
||Spelling mistakes and bad grammar
|Relevant work experience (most recent first)
||Date of Birth
||Details of children
A covering letter should always accompany your CV and should include:
- Why you are writing to the employer (State the vacancy title and reference number listed in the advertisement)
- Why you would be suitable for that particular role (Highlight specific information from your CV, such as skills and qualifications that the employer is looking for)
Your covering letter should:
- Attract the readers attention
- Interest the reader
- Be personalised for the job you are applying for
- Have perfect spelling and grammar
