A résumé or C.V. (Curriculum Vitae) is an important part of any job application. It often represents the fi rst document a HR professional or recruiter looks at when receiving a job application. In a resume, you summarise your professional history which should include education, employment history and volunteer work. By presenting these pieces of information, you can demonstrate that you are a suitable candidate for a particular role. Resumes are not a “set and forget’ type of document. You should keep it constantly updated and you need to adapt it for every job application, to ensure you demonstrate the potential employer that you have the right skills for the advertised role.
