The CV you write will very much depend on your stage of study or employment, and who you are writing it for. As an undergraduate or graduate you may wish to consider either a chronological or skills based CV, seeing which works best for you. At this stage it is also best to try and produce a one-page CV.
Consider employability skills, the company, their values and competencies and reflect these in your CV, providing relevant evidence from your subject skills, extracurricular and experiences. You will need to tailor your CV to each application.
Use of technology plays an increasingly large part in recruitment and selection and very much so for formal work experience schemes, internships and graduate applications. Thinking carefully and presenting your skills and qualities that suit the role will lead to authenticity and confidence in your application. Again, research carefully the employer competencies.
As a career professional it may be more relevant for you to present a short summary of experience and consider a skills-based approach to your CV, with each one being tailored specifically to the role and company.
