Learning how to write an effective CV (Curriculum Vitae) is an important exercise in professional development and an essential part of the job hunting process.

Writing a good CV can be challenging. This guide will help you with content, layout and tone. 

There are many ways of writing a CV to fit your current level of experience. For example, if you have very little to no work experience it may be appropriate to put education directly after your personal profile section.

However, if you are looking to move into the industry sector you will need to highlight transferable skills gained from previous experience to support your application.
