Curriculum Vitae

The purpose of a CV is also different from that of a resume. It is usually used when applying for college scholarships, applying in an international school, or when taking scientific positions in particular companies. Notice that all of these belong to the academic field, where meticulous investigation is done to choose candidates for the interview. This is the reason why a CV must be written carefully and professionally.

To start the detailed synopsis of your background, write a summary of your personal details. This includes age, birth date, gender, contact details, and nationality. The inclusion of other information such as marital status, number of children, and spouse is optional. Write the employment history next. It must contain details on the job position, employer, and time frame. Discuss your key functions, responsibilities, achievements, and other notable works elaborately. The reader of your CV must depict each situation clearly for better assessment.

Next, discuss your educational background in the same manner you discussed your employment history. It must be laden with details. Professional skills that have been developed in your career must be listed too. This is followed by your awards, organizations, certifications, and publications. Finally, express your interests at the end of your CV.
