A CV/résumé should be clear and well structured, with a limited number of main sections, so that an employer can pinpoint the information they’re looking for quickly and easily. Here are some broad guidelines on how to structure an effective CV/résumé.
Always begin with your personal details, i.e.:
- telephone number (home and/or mobile)
- email address (personal, rather than work)
- personal profile
There’s no need to include your date of birth, your marital status, or your nationality unless the job advert has specifically asked you for this information.
