Your CV and Cover Letter

A Curriculum Vitae, otherwise known as a CV, is a common document that is required for most jobs that you will apply for. Loosely translated, Curriculum Vitae means 'the course of my life' and is quite simply a document containing pertinent information about your career history and your skills.

In addition to providing a CV most employers will also ask candidates to provide a cover letter, which is an opportunity for you to introduce yourself to a potential employer and explain in more detail why you are right for the position.

Preparing these documents can be hard work; that's why we've put together a selection of useful articles below to give yourself the best chances of securing that job.
