When I speak to people about their CVs – be it friends, or potential customers – there is always this underlying anxiety surrounding the topic.

Anxieties vary and range from what format the document should be in, to how formal it should be written to whether or not you should smile in your photo (if there should even be a photo!).

I have put together a short list of some common misconceptions about the CV to help make the topic a little less daunting for those attempting to nail it by themselves. For those who still feel uncomfortable doing so alone, KatyCan is always here to help.
