Keeping your CV up to date

Posted on September 24, 2014 at 9:34 am

Writing a CV can be a long process and you may feel unsure of exactly what you should include and in how much detail. There are many useful websites out there that will tell you what a CV should contain and show you examples of them.

If you already have a CV then I would suggest trying to update it every six months or so. Even if yo haven’t changed jobs, you may have learnt new skills or been sent on training course that you wish to include in your CV. If you update it as you go along it means that when you do come to apply for a new job, you should have most of the information already on there and it may just be a bit of tweaking.

Many people don’t update their CV for years and then they see a job which they want to apply for but the closing date is too soon to allow them to have chance to update the CV. You don’t want to miss out on the career you have always wanted.
