Your CV is your first opportunity to market yourself to potential future employers. This booklet has been produced by the Careers Service to show a range of different CVs devised to cover a number of scenarios. There are examples from undergraduates, Masters and PhD level students, and the CVs have been tailored for a variety of positions - internships/placements, graduate roles, postgraduate study applications, academia, and industry.
