CV Template Examples

Types of CV

There are two main types of CV templates used by job seekers when writing their CVs, these are: the Functional CV and the Reverse Chronological Order CV.

The Functional CV

Functional CVs are usually pretty short in length and cover your career history. They mainly focus on your skills, abilities and expertise. Some functional CVs may not mention a specific industry, this is because your skills are seen as transferable.

Reverse Chronological CV

Reverse Chronological Order CVs detail your career history in reverse chronological order (your most recent employment detailed first and working backwards). Your complete career history is detailed with a complete education and training record. This type of CV is seen as the most frequently used CV.

At CVSafe we use the reverse chronological order CV template style when creating CV's, as we believe most employers tend to prefer this style of CV format. This may be due to the fact that the reverse chronological order CV format lists history starting with the most recent items first.

The first page of the reverse chronological order CV should highlight your most recent role and this should be evident to the reader at a glance. Remember, when writing your CV, you only have approximately 30 seconds to impress a potential employer reading your CV, so you need to make sure you get all of your strong points across as early as possible.

Career Objective

I am a postgraduate in MSc International Management with excellent communication and customer service skills, keen to begin a career in the financial consulting industry

Skills

  • My role as a committee treasurer requires me to pay attention to the details of every single payment that is requested or spent by other committee members. I ensure no mistakes are made when recording transactions. The experience of working as a waiter has also allowed me to pay attention to every guest's body language, which allowed me to identify their needs to help them as effectively as possible.
  • In my role as a financial consultant, all financial advice I have given was based on accessing financial information and making logical decisions. The degree modules of strategic management and business analysis both required significant logical thinking and analysis in order to provide the most appropriate solutions within a variety of assignments.
  • High level of attention to detail
  • Team working
