What are cv’s and why do we need them?
Cv’s are documents that most jobs require which we use in order to present ourselves in the best light in order to get a job.They summerise our achievements, goals, qualifications and our skills that hopefully impress possible employers as this is often the first introduction to yourself. This being the first stage of communication between you and the employer is why making a great impression and a even better CV is of the upmost importance in order to move along to the interview stage. Showing your passion for the job whilst remaining professional and using proper spelling and grammer as that could possibly be the difference between you getting the offer.
Creative CV’s just like any other Cvs are used in order to highlight your achievement and your character in order for an employer to see wether you are the type of candidate they after. The difference in doing one that is for a more specific field such as a creative one is that it is more focused on your experiences within the arts. I have yet to apply for jobs within the creative field but hope to in the near future.
