I’ve been researching what information I should include in a professional CV through some websites catering to those with less experience- I have made various CV’s over the years that cater towards a search for a part time job in retail/ hospitality/ customer service as a way of gaining experience in a working environment. I have not, however begun a search for jobs that relate to my current area of study (Fine Art) since I didn’t have the qualifications nor the certainty of what job area I wish to go into. I have found a site that gave more straight forward tips on creating a cv, including what not to write as well as examples. I have taken screenshots and will display them below:
