Begin organizing your past experiences into some of the different sections required for a CV, such as a professional summary, work experience, education and training, and an area of expertise section. A CV can also list additional information, such as awards, hobbies, references, publications, and presentations. Keep your CV to one page if you are a recent graduate, two pages if you are at the mid-level, and three pages if you are an executive.
Place your contact information at the top of your document. Write a compelling professional summary that impresses the employer. Detail your previous work and academic experiences in reverse chronological order. Use strong, vivid details to describe your past successes. If you have a lengthy work history, eliminate older jobs and focus on relevant work related to the job you want. Market yourself as a strong candidate to get that interview.
