Job Hunting Cvs


Recommended Posts

Oh, I can't bear CVs!!! They don't allow you to tailor your application to the job spec.


I have seen a few CVs recently that the college have sent me for their Apprentices. They must get trained in writing them at college as they all have the same headings!

  • Name, address and telephone number at the top in the centre
  • Sorry - date of birth goes in with this
  • Personal Profile (a few sentences outlining your career or education - make it link to the post applying for)
  • Key Skills - bullet points, e.g. excellent team member; enthusiastic, etc
  • Education and Qualification - most recent first
  • Achiievements and Hobbies

Good luck with it!

Hi Mundia,

if you have Microsoft Office have you tried opening a 'WORD' document, clicking on FILE and then the 'new' tab and then doing a search in 'Templates on Office Online'. There are sample CV's for loads and loads of situations that you could use or adapt! Good luck with the job hunting :o
