  • You should never forget giving your contact information which can include your present contact number, email address, and correspondence address.
  • Your CV should have a summary which dictates the background of your professional work. Or, if you are just a novice entering the market, you would simply state your objective of applying for the job opening.
  • The presentation of your experience after the summary should be in a reverse-chronological order.
