What to Include in a CV ?

 What information should a CV include?

   Personal details. Most CVs start with these but take care to avoid superfluous details, such as religious affiliation, children’s names and so on.
Education and qualifications. Take care to include the names of institutions and dates attended in reverse order; university before school results.
Work experience. The most widely accepted style of employment record is the chronological CV. Career history is presented in reverse date order starting with most recent. Achievements and responsibilities are listed against each role. More emphasis/information should be put on more recent jobs.
Skills. Include computer skills and (genuine) foreign language skills and any other recent training/development that is relevant to the role applied for.
Hobbies and Interests. Keep this section short.
    Referees. These can simply be ‘Available on request’.

How long should a CV be?

A good curriculum vitae should ideally cover no more than two pages and never more than three. Aim to ensure the content is clear, structured, concise and relevant. Using bullet points rather than full sentences can help minimize word usage.

    Technical specifications for motor oils can generally be found on the particular brand’s website,
    although sometimes it may be necessary to contact the company to ask that
    they provide them. Safer operation – Higher flash points, fire
    points, and spontaneous ignition reduces the risk of fire and equipment loss –
    saving you money.
