Information and guidance for young people aged 13-19 Writing your CV Keep it brief and to the point – no more than two pages of A4. 33 Use a computer, use the same font throughout and use clear headings. 33 Write your current position or qualification first and work backwards. 33 Include any achievements or courses you’ve been on outside of school (for example, passing music exams, getting a driving licence, getting a first aid certificate or doing voluntary work). 33 Include a covering letter with your CV. 33 Read through the CV before you send it off, checking for any mistakes. 33 Make a copy – you may need to use it again and it will be easier to update.
