    Can anyone reccomend any good sites that offer templates and advice?

    I help people with cv's everyday, we don't use templates, just stick to this format

    name
    address
    phone

    personal profile

    Key skills

    employment history

    Education

    Interests

    Refs

    Centre the first 3, make your name a bit bigger, and bold.

    Bullet point your key skills list.

    Order employment history and education by date, use indents to keep it all tidy.

    For references just put "references available on request"

    Don't put your DOB on

    i use to think CV's were really hard, but they're really not

    I'd agree with chipsticks advice and this site sort of shows you how it should look.

    can u keep the reference list on or do u have to put "references available on request"?

    also why no DOB and should you put a title infront of ur name e.g. Mr/Miss/Mrs etc

    You're meant to take references off now, because of the data protection act :thumbsup:

    No DOB is just because employers are not allowed to age discriminate, some still do, whether they like to admit it or not, lol

    Hmmm I've never put a title on, but I don't see why not. We never do though
