Curriculum Vitae (CV) Advice

A standard CV isn't suitable for all jobs and levels of experience. A CV must highlight skills that match the recruiter's needs.

Chronological CV
Sometimes known as a traditional or a graduate CV. A chronological CV is used to match qualifications and experience with the requirements of a job. This CV is structured in reverse chronological order; providing clear details of qualifications, employment history and responsibilities.

The skills-based CV allows individuals to emphasize on skills they have developed. This CV can be used if the applicant has a skillset that is required for a job but has limited professional experience, unrelated qualifications and/ or significant gaps in their employment history.
