Curiculum Vitae - A CV Centre Guide

What is a "Curiculum Vitae"?

Well, for a start, it's actually a "Curriculum Vitae". "Curiculum Vitae" is just a very common mis-spelling.

The simplest dictionary definition says a Curriculum Vitae is "a summary of your academic and work history". Well, that's basically true, but we see a Curriculum Vitae (or 'CV' for short) as more of a personal marketing tool, one which should be carefully crafted to ensure you have the best possible chance of getting the job you want.

"Thank you for the CV and covering letter that you updated for me. The result was unbelievable, in that once I submitted it to the recruiting websites I had a hit in 5 days. An offer of an interview from a local recruiting agency - and, after meeting with the employer, I was offered the position 6 hours later. It just goes to show how a well-written CV and covering letter 'gets you into the frame' for employment opportunities."
