Student Example CV

This student example CV will assist you in laying out your own CV.

To improve your CV and get more interviews, you might want to take a look at Bradley CVs professional CV writers.

Please note that you may need to modify the layout of this example student CV when you write your own CV, so that it fits your own circumstances.

For example, the work experience section may need to be placed before the education section, if your work experience is far more relevant than the education section for any jobs you are applying for. A separate achievements section might also be a good idea, if you have lots of relevant educational, vocational or work related achievements.

When you are thinking about how to write a CV that wins you the interviews you want, you need to consider every aspect of your CV, especially the layout and the actual information that you must include. CV writing also requires careful identification and analysis of your skills, experience and results.
