Your CV

Writing a good CV is the first important step towards getting a job. Distilling comprehensive details of your employment history into a couple of A4 pages can seem daunting. Add to that the many competing theories about the best way to present your working life on paper, and you may find yourself struggling to know where to begin. But there’s really only one rule that matters: keep it simple.
