banned#3

I thought you said CEO's don't need a cv brah?
#5
Yerp that's right mate, keep the 300k a year after tax in the "Interests and Achievements" area.

Goodluck with the job hunt!
#6
layout is fine, might want to title it Curriculum Vitae

also, you cant lie on a CV so remove the 300k after tax rubbish, if you were on that you are beyond the level of applying for a job with a CV. you would be invited to take a job.

safe fam almost forgot the title

Buy a domain. Hotmail email address just looks tacky.
#10
don't title it Curriculum Vitae, i wouldnt title a letter 'letter', they know what it is. put your name in bold and centered instead

reverse chronological order for education and work experience, so gcse's last, degree first.

Can buy a domain for a couple of quid a year.

[email protected]">[email protected] looks better, anything to give you an edge over other potential employees.

Not enough lies on it, add even more.

Disagree, make sure Curriculum Vitae is clearly visible on the front page.

Agreed, when you are sorting through 50 or 60 of these you need to see the relevant information quickly. so spell it out.
banned#17
Probably also wise to include your current income, the car you drive and all the portfolios you hold for property and shares. Dont forget to mention how fast you can run, the modelling photoshoots you've been in and the influence you once had on a shopping forum.

And lastly, always tell the truth in your CV otherwise you may end up looking stupid in the end.

Surely it is better to have the person's name at the top then, as you can find the CV you want quickly then. Obviously it is a CV without having the info on. I always get my students to put their name, big and bold, bang centre at the top.

BG, your qualifications should be in reverse chronological order i.e. starting with most recent. Same for employment history.

Definately not, Curriculum Vitae should always be at the top, youu get your 'students' to create cv's without showing they are cv's? what sort of teacher are you?

Curriculum Vitae

Name
Address
Telephone
Mobile
Email
(all of the above centered and bold)

(Each of these as titles in bold alligned to the left)
Personal Profile (Keep it short, sell yourself in the cover letter, don't include personal information like d.o.b)

Employment History (in reverse chronological)

Education and Training (in reverse chronological)

Personal information (Not necessary, but could be done, just put date of birth and anything else you think may be important about you and your circumstances/achievements)

Can I just ask why you have put 'students' as opposed to students? Seems as though you might be trying to be patronising which would be a bit uncalled for just because someone on an internet forum has a different opinion to you. As for what kind of teacher I am, well I'm a very good teacher thank you very much for your concern. Of course we show them a range of CV's, some with CV or Curriculum Vitae at the top, others with a name at the top.

Perhaps some CV layout is down to personal preference as the layout we use is the one approved by the exam board for which the CV forms part of the portfolio. The centering of personal details is also subjective; their is no hard and fast rule. Many students come to college with a CV they have either done at school, with Connexions, Job Centre or parents; they are all different. Even the chronological or reverse chronological order varies yet I would say that reverse chronological order is the way to go. Last tip to BG1 make sure your spelling is correct in your CV and covering letter e.g. definitely rather than definately.

Not meaning to be patronising at all, just doesn't seem like good practice to teach your students to create a CV that may fall through the cracks in systems. eg, post room staff need all the help they can get to send mail to the correct person, so spell it out to them what it is they are distributing.

As for the reasoning that it would be easier to find a specific CV, I don't think it would make a difference, bearing in mind the name would be one line below 'Curriculum Vitae'.

I'm sure you are a good teacher, however, don't you think it better to give you students the best chance? rather than what can only be put as a cop out. The simple fact of the matter is, employers will look for something that stands out from the rest for the right reasons. Now if I recieved 50 CV's, and 5 couldn't be bothered to simply put 'Curriculium Vitae', for me, that would make my job easier in weeding out the people willing to go the extra mile, not the other way around.

Also, i do apologise for spelling 'definitely' wrong, thats what you get when you are typing fast on an iphone. Your post isn't free of errors.

So not putting Curriculum Vitae at the top is a cop out? In what way? And how does it show people have gone the extra mile by typing two words? Don't think it's a case of 'can't be bothered' either. It doesn't take much effort either way. AA well written CV is more importnat, irrespective of what is at the top. It's not a case of good practice either. Good practice for me is ensuring my students pass their course; to not do a CV to exam board requirements may jeopardie that.

Mail getting to the right person? Well I normally send things in envelopes addressed to the person I want them to go to; I find it makes life much easier for post room staff.

I believe you have fallen into the trap of either it is your personal preference or your organisations preference that a CV is presented in such a way. The way I lay out a CV is actually based on one given to me as a good example by the HR Director of a large multinational who first advised me about not putting Curriculum Vitae at the top. As I said before, I do think it is down to personal preference.

Please, good people, stop wasting your time on the rodent. He is a liar who claims to be a stockbroker, a model, a restauranteur, an actor in Lost - and yet here he is on a shopping forum asking about writing a CV!!! Let's not forget what he was doing only 2 years ago - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/194269/bored-at-work?t=194269

You're all wasting your time trying to help him - he is just taking the mick.
