Tips To Create Professionals CV

Tips For Create Professionals CV

To write a good CV you must first make sure you know what your goals are. You need to write your CV with a specific job in mind. The right CV will get you an interview quickly, while a badly written CV may mean you won’t even get a rejection.

There are a few things you need to do to get the most out of your CV and show prospective employers why you are the only person for the job. 

This guide will give you our top tips and the best CV examples, showing you how to write a great CV that gets noticed. 

What information should be included when writing a CV?

The format of a CV is flexible, and many different styles are used. While you need to tailor the content of your CV to the job in question, there are elements that most employers would expect to see: 

Name, professional title and contact details 

You don’t need to include the words ‘Curriculum Vitae’ as your heading. The title of your CV, at the very top, should be your name, professional title and contact details – anything else is just a waste of space.  

What contact details should I provide?

Your email address and contact number(s) are all that is required – you don’t need to include a postal address. Do not add your age, nationality, date of birth or marital status – these are NOT required.

Feel free to add an up-to-date professional profile, such as LinkedIn. 

Here’s an example of how your header might look: 

Forename Surname | Professional Title

Location: Town, County

Phone: +49 1234 567890

Email: name@example.com

Personal profile

This is simply a few lines about you, who you are, what you hope to achieve, and your goals. Make it fit the job you are applying for if you can. The person described in your Personal Profile (you) should sound like the ideal candidate for the job. 

Work history and experience

This section is where you can really shine. Set out your previous roles, experience, volunteering, placements or internships. You should list these in reverse chronological order – that is, most recent first. This is because your most recent role and experience are the most important to your prospective employer. 

For each job, you should include:

  • employer details
  • your job role/title
  • your employment dates
  • no more than three to four lines of what you did in that role.

Significant achievements should be identified using the STAR method. Active words, such as ‘planned’, ‘built’ and ‘created’ are useful in detailing things you have achieved. 

Here’s an example of how each item could look on your CV: 

mmm yyyy – mmm yyyy

Company Name, Location

Role Title



Key responsibilities

  • xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Key achievements/projects

  • xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Top tip: If you have a lot of experience/previous positions, you don’t need to include roles from more than 10 years ago – unless, of course, they are particularly relevant to the job for which you are applying. 


Again, these should appear in reverse chronological order, the most recent first. Each item should include: 

  • Institution (School, College, University) 
  • Qualification with grades/distinctions, etc. 
  • Dates attended/completed 

So, this section may look like this: 

Institution name – Dates attended (from – to)

Qualification/subject – Grade

Or for space-saving if needed, try the more compact: 

Qualification, grade – Institution – Year

If you have a degree, it’s a good idea to list a few relevant modules, projects or assignments underneath.

Additional sections 

If you have room, or again, if they are particularly relevant to the role for which you are applying, then you can add extra sections for things such as: 

Key skills

This is an opportunity to add some key skills (also known as ‘soft skills’ or ‘core skills’) that are super-relevant to the job you are applying for.  You could include, for example, experience with a particular piece of software or application, courses you have attended, or anything that will help you secure your dream role. 

Hobbies and interests

Try and keep this section of your CV interesting, if you use it. Include unusual hobbies, ones that add to your suitability for the role. Try to avoid really common hobbies and interests, such as reading, walking, etc.
