How to write a CV and cover letter

When it is time to start looking for a job, the first thing you’ll need to get sorted is your CV, so that when you find the job of your dreams (or at least, one that will get you on the path to your dream job!) you’re ready to apply.

Although you should write a bespoke cover letter for each job you’re applying for, you can prepare sections so that you can put your letter together efficiently. Through this post, we’ll look at what a CV is, detail what should be included (and what definitely shouldn’t!) before we move onto how to write a cover letter.
