The Purpose of the CV

The term ‘Curriculum Vitae’ is commonly abbreviated to CV and is used to refer to the document that you provide to employers to give a summary of your career history. Employers will ask for a CV, as when they have a potential vacancy, they will create a list of criteria and specifications for the job and obtaining your CV will enable them to quickly determine whether you match what they are looking for. It is estimated that a typical employer will spend on average less than a minute looking at a CV, it is therefore imperative that your CV showcases your achievements, skills and demonstrates the skills that a potential employer is looking for.

The Purpose of the Cover Letter

When applying for most positions, you will almost certainly need to prepare a cover letter as part of your application. The purpose of the cover letter is to introduce yourself, explain your reasons for applying for the role and highlight your skills and experience.

For this reason the contents of the cover letter matter, it is your introduction to an employer and the first impression that you create matters. The cover letter will not only highlight your achievements and skills, however it will also demonstrate your ability to effectively communicate. Therefore, it is essential that you take the time to make your cover letter the best it can possibly be.
