CV coaching is not the same as CV writing. As CV coach, my role is to help you identify and communicate your skills, knowledge, experience and personal qualities. This happens through questions and discussion, encouraging you to find your own answers. 

What is a curriculum vitae, or CV?

A CV is a sales tool. It is a document whose purpose is to impress potential employers, and convince them to invite you for an interview. Your CV should be honest but promote you in the most positive light. 

There are a lot of CV templates available to download and there is no right or wrong format to use. 


Here are a few tips to get you thinking about writing your CV:

Avoid jargon

Avoid negative language (can't, didn't, haven't etc)

Keep sentences short but relevant

Always keep in mind the role you are applying for. If you are looking at different jobs and/or different industries, edit your CV so that the information is relevant

Don't include a photograph, your date of birth, nationality or address - none of these things are required in the UK
