A Curriculum Vitae, or as it is better known, CV, contains information about

  • your education,
  • your work experience,
  • your skills,
  • the languages you speak, write, and even understand and/or can translate from and to,
  • your volunteering experience,
  • your extra-curricular experience,
  • your references,
  • a summary of your persona.

A summary of what your persona stands for may or may not be present in your CV. Depending on what template you choose out of a myriad of those available for free or for a fee, the order of those may change, but essentially every CV contains these things to one or another extent. This should lead you to think two things. One, your CV must have all of those components to make it a document that every reader will recognize as a CV. Two, your CV must present all of those things in a way that stands out.


This book is exactly about that, how to make YOUR CV stand out. In this part of the book, I discuss in great detail what each and every part of the CV is. I discuss what every part means and also what it does not mean; what to include, what to exclude, what to highlight, what cliché phrases are, how to avoid cliché phrases, and how to create a meaningful content that will actually stand out and not just promise to stand out.
