Job search: step 2 – a skills-based CV

Today I’ve done some research on skills-based CVs and found an example of what one actually looks like.  The main headings are:

  • Personal statement
  • Skills
  • Education
  • Work
  • Additional information
  • Referees

The areas covered in the section on skills are:

  • communication
  • planning and organisation
  • teamwork
  • training
  • computing

These seem reasonable headings to begin with and are the kinds of areas I was thinking of including, although I may have to add to or refine these when I consider and group together my own skills.

My next step is to write up the education section.

Have you taken your first steps yet?
