Writing a CV can be a daunting process. What's the ideal length of a CV? How far back in my work history do I go? It can be challenging to know what's relevant and what's not to a potential future employer.

  • Do I need to create a two page CV?
  • Do I need to include a personal statement/cover letter?
  • Do I list items with bullet points or in a numbered list?
  • Do I list my work experience in reverse chronological order?
  • Do I tailor my transferable skills and experience for the job?
