Yesterday I browsed through some sample CV designs (like the really expensive ones you pay for)for inspiration. I went for a fairly simple design (photo left hand side, name in a nice font in a header above a contact bar with symbols for modes of contact i.e. address, tel and email.) I’ve edited the information I had on my old CV to make it shorter and punchier rather than paragraphs and I’m much more pleased with it now.
Before I mark this goal as done I’d like to have a few more things to put under the employment/experience header, so I’ll wait until I’ve completed my work experience placements and festival work.
I know I’m a perfectionist, but I think if there’s an overall aspiration CV-wise it would be for it to appear more unified, so that my experience and interests etc seem more coherent. At the moment it’s a bit all over the place, but I guess that’s OK considering my age and the fact that I’ve not finished education and started on a FT career path yet. 12 months ago
