‘CV’ stands for Curriculum Vitae, a Latin term that means ‘course of (one’s) life’. A CV provides a brief account of a person’s education, certifications, skills and work experience. Job seekers have used CVs for hundreds of years. Whilst the design and format may have changed, the purpose is still to successfully sell a person’s abilities to potential employers. A CV is called a resume in the US.

The golden rule is that you resume should be as short as possible. Ideally one page long, setting out in summary form your work history, achievements, experience and skills. This is especially true for students, apprentices and recent graduates. Employers typically spend only a few moments during a first sift of applications. So It’s all about creating immediate impact and making life easy for them.

A cover letter should be about 200 to 500 words, depending on your experience. You should aim for 3-6 concise paragraphs. Bear in mind what a cover letter is for. It introduces you as a candidate, so it needs to quickly showcase your personality and interest in the opportunity. Hiring managers do not have much time to spare, so you need to be concise and create maximum impact.
