A curriculum vitae, often abbreviated as CV, is a document that provides a detailed overview of a person's education, work experience, and other relevant achievements. Typically used in employment and research settings, CVs are often longer than traditional resumes and are designed to showcase an individual's professional and personal accomplishments. A well-written CV should be organised, clear, and concise, highlighting the most important information about the individual's professional background and qualifications.
There are several key elements that should be included in a CV. These include personal information such as your name, contact information, a summary or objective statement that outlines the individual's career goals and qualifications; education and academic credentials; work experience, including internships and other relevant jobs; professional skills and achievements; and any additional information such as voluntary work, personal interests and awards. It's important to tailor a CV to the specific position or field in which you are applying, highlighting the most relevant information and skills.
