Curriculum Vitae - A CV Centre Guide

What is a "Curriculum Vitae"?

The simplest dictionary definition says that a Curriculum Vitae is "a summary of your academic and work history". Well, that's basically true, but we see a Curriculum Vitae (commonly abbreviated to 'CV') as more of a personal sales brochure, one which should be very carefully written and presented to ensure you have the best possible chance of getting the job you want. Getting it right means the difference between getting your foot in the door for an interview, or ending up in the 'no thank you' pile - also known as the bin!
