A CV or curriculum vitae, is a written description of your work experience, educational background and skills.
It is your key to open doors to be invited to interview and should tell an employer why you are the right candidate for the job. It should reflect you as an individual, your skills and experience and also match the requirements of the employer. Consider that employers spend as little as 30 seconds scanning a CV for the keywords they want to see – matching you to the job description they have advertised. This means that you should tailor your CV for each job application.
