CV & cover letter template

Use these downloadable templates to create your own CV (also known as resume) and cover letter. You can also look at examples of completed CVs and cover letters to help you personalize your own documents.

Which CV style to choose

The CV style you use depends on the job you are applying for and your history, circumstances, focus etc. You can choose to emphasise either your work history (work-focused CV) or your skills (skills-focused CV).

Here are two CV styles. You can alsoe use a combination of the two CV styles.

Skills-focused CV

The skills-focused CV emphasises your skills by having a well-developed section on skills at the front of your CV. The work history information in your CV can be kept to a minimum.

If you have no work experience, you can leave the work history section out altogether, but make sure you give evidence of how your skills were developed.

Use a skills-focused CV if:

  • you want to emphasis on your skills more than on your work history
  • you are applying for your first job or only have limited employment history
  • you are re-entering the job market after a long absence.

Work-focused CV

A work-focused CV puts emphasis on your work history by having it at the front of your CV. If you choose a work-focused CV, you may decide to keep the information you include in the skills section to a minimum.

Use a work-focused CV if:

  • you want to emphasise your work history over your skills
  • you want to emphasise your career progression.
