Current CV Format

If you are in the process of looking for a job, the resume you are using to accompany your application letter is what is known as a current CV. This type of resume is written in reverse chronological order. Information or details of the job held last appear first. It is with a particular job or market in mind. You should not simply state educational qualifications in a current CV. Instead, you should relate them to the position applied for. Prospective employers need to see how you fit in with their company’s goals and objectives. Below is a CV that demonstrates a current CV format.
