Idiot's guide to writing a CV - example

Getting writer’s block sprucing up your CV? Try this fool proof technique:

FIRST LINE:

State the name of the company and what dates (MM/YYYY) you were from and until.

SECOND LINE:

State your job title.

THIRD LINE:

Say what challenge your team was tasked to solve, in one sentence.

FORTH LINE:

Say what the solution to that challenge was, in one sentence.

FIFTH LINE:

Say how that solution was implemented and what technologies were used to implement that solution.

SIXTH LINE (if appropriate):

Explain how you took ownership or responsibility for anything.

REPEAT FOR EACH JOB YOU HAVE HAD / REPEAT FOR EACH PROJECT YOU WERE A PART OF.
