What information should you include on your CV?

Deciding what information to include on your CV is very simple. Just remember that you only need to include information that is going to directly contribute to you actually getting called back for an interview. Any additional information that you can mention or expand on in the interview is probably not necessary. Your CV should not be longer then 1-2 pages, so keep it lean.

Below are the sections that I recommend you include on your CV.


1) Your Name and Personal Information.

Including your name is obviously vital, but what other personal information should you include? You should always add your contact details to this section, a mobile number and Email address should be enough. Just make sure that you are reachable on whatever contact details you provide. As far as other personal information goes only add information that is vital for your application, this is industry and job specific.

2) A CV objective statement

If you are having a problem fitting all your information into 2 pages then you can leave out an objective statement. An objective statement gives you a chance to introduce yourself and highlight your goals and ambitions. If you would like to check out a great article on how to write an objective statement you are welcome to check out this article.

3) Your Employment History

This is the most important section of your CV. Make sure that it is well formatted and easy to read. Your employment history should run from your most recent backwards so that your current or last position is displayed first. Try to identify any large gaps in your employment history and make sure that they are explained on your CV.

4) Your Education History

Keep this section quite short. You do not need to expand to much on your education unless you achieved any exceptional results during your studies. Generally speaking just listing your qualification achieved, the year obtained and the institution where you studies should be enough.

5) Notable Skills

Only list skills that you actually possess. This section does not need to be very long, but it can be useful to grab the readers attention. Make sure that you list skills that are appropriate for the job vacancy which might mean that you need to rewrite this section for each job application.

6) Contactable References

This is a very important section. Hiring managers are always going to want to contact a manager or supervisor from your previous job. I recommend listing 2-3 contactable references. Make sure that you let your references know that you have listed them as a reference.

Add a cover letter to your application

If you really want to stand out from the crowd why not also try one of our awesome cover letter templates. A well written, professional cover letter can set you up for success before you have even been called for an interview, if it is done right. A cover letter gives you a chance to show show off your personality and expand on your achievements before even meeting the hiring manager. Browse though our samples and pick the one that best suits you.
