Curriculum Vitae (CV), Resume, Record of Achievement, Profile, or Biography are all terms used to describe the different ways you can market your skills and experience to a prospective employer in writing. They are all designed to summarize what you can do and persuade an employer to invite you for an interview.
Your CV is one piece of communication over which you have total control. In your CV, you have the chance to make yourself as attractive as possible. Sadly, there is no one perfect way to write a CV or one style that is guaranteed to be 100percent effective every time. What may appeal to one employer may not appeal to another and facts that are relevant for one job may not be relevant for another. The strategy widely adopted of producing a standard CV and then sending it speculatively to several companies is actually one of the least effective methods of job hunting.
