In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.
A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have, rather than our work history.
Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.
Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:
- Is a brief (usually but not always) account of a person’s education, qualifications, previous work experience and other useful previous experience.
- Is submitted when a person applies for a job and gives employers an idea of the suitability of a person for a particular job.
- Promotes you as the right person for the job and should make an employer want to find out more about you ie. offer you a face to face interview.
