Curriculum Vitae Format

Your CV is the first thing a potential employer will see about you. It needs to look professional, be concise and easy to read. Always have someone else proofread your CV. We recommend white paper and a simple font. Be sure that there are no time gaps. Here is some critical information that should be included.
