  2. A personal summary of no more than 3 to 4 lines explaining 'who you are' professionally.
  3. Work experience listed chronologically with the most recent first.
  4. The more recent the position held, the more detail required.
  5. Be factual and concise.
  6. Highlight key achievements, not just responsibilities.
  7. Be honest, especially with academic credentials.
  8. Personal interests may be relevant, but do not overdo the list.
  9. Personal information is often superfluous (e.g. number of children).
  10. Make the accompanying letter create the links between your CV and the position or company being addressed.
