delirium happy
I've just written a CV. My first ever. It does look very thin on the ground, but I think that's probably as it should be. If anyone fancies taking a look at it for me then it's at http://www.22cr.org.uk/rachel/temp/cv.doc (yes, that's MS word -- if there's anyone who could seriously advise me on changes I could make who can't view that then say and I'll put it up in some other format).

I also think it would be a good idea to include interests (anything collaborative is particularly good, and at least one unusual-but-not-too-controversial item is good as a talking point) and any voluntary work you have done, or any positions of responsibility held (even at school will do.)

Another useful thing can be to include a section on "ambitions in personal life" - it makes you sound more interesting and more focused, without being too threatening (i.e. it makes you sound ambitious without implying you're after the interviewer's job!) Mine says "To own a narrowboat and run the London Marathon", for instance.
