Your CV is often the first contact you have with potential employers. Instead of just dusting off the old CV you have and sending it out, here are 5 tips to help you create a CV that will make a real impression.
1. Not a Resume
Remember that a CV or Curriculum Vitae is not a resume. What’s the difference? A CV is a credential-based document. It’s where you provide the history of your education and training, certifications and research experience as well as professional affiliations and memberships. A CV showcases your qualifications for a job, while a resume showcases the skills and work experience to date. Be sure account for any gaps, too.
You may not have a laundry list of qualifications, that’s ok. Don’t pad your resume with pre-med school training. Your CV will grow with your career.
