Time for your first CV? Just because its first time doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t write a CV. You still have lots of stuff to add and build your CV. CV is still one of the most important document when its come to applying for a job.
CV writing is fun and its more fun when you are going to do it for the first time.
Quick tips for your first CV:
– Ask help from someone who knows what is he/she doing
– You can always get help from a professional CV writer but you don’t have to.
– Check out CV Examples on the net to get an idea but do not copy paste!
– Don’t stress much as it does not help! Employers will know that its your first CV.
Writing your first CV can be daunting if you have no jobs to put on it! But, all you need to do is show your employer what skills and experience you have, along with the kind of person you are, and this should be sufficient along with a good covering letter. I have created a template to illustrate this.

I am a newly qualified GCSE student looking for my first job. I have enjoyed my years in education and have 100% attendance. I was a prefect which meant helping my fellow pupils enjoy school in a safe manner, and I enjoyed assisting colleagues and serving customers, cash handling and communicating with people in the Tuck Room I volunteered in.
- Sensible and practical.
- Approachable and Friendly.
- Neat and Presentable.
- Highly organised.
Professional Qualifications. None.
Work History None.
I Have no work history as I have only just finished my GCSE education. However, during my time at school I was a Prefect, Recycling Assistant and also helped in the Tuck Shop, all of which I think show my responsible nature and trustworthy character.
