CV Headings

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Q: Can you please tell me the required info in headings to be included in a CV. I am reading so many different ways to write it up and its getting very confusing. Thanks

A: There are many views on this topic. It is probably expected that your CV will include the headings “Education & Qualifications”, and “Work Experience”. 

After that it is more a case of what information is relevant for the read. Other headings include: “Additional Information”, “Key Skills”, “Technical Skills”, “Interests & Activities”, “Professional Memberships”, and “References”. 

In the past I have created my own CV headings to help highlight relevant information, or enable the positioning of key information on the front page of the CV.
