CV TIPS - Work Experience

The work experience section of your CV includes information about your work history and contains your job responsibilities, accomplishments, and skills.  This section of your CV will help the recruiter decide whether you have the necessary work experience that is required for their role.

Top tips:

  • Customize your CV for every job application you send.
  • Keep your work experience up to date.
  • List your work experience in reverse chronological order (most recent first) and don’t go any further than your last 5-6 jobs.
  • Include full-time and part-time jobs, temporary positions, volunteering, and internships.


Important information to include:

  • Job title
  • Job Location
  • Dates of employment
  • Responsibilities/Achievements



Follow the layout below to keep your work experience section clear, uniform, and simple for recruiters to follow.

Bullet points:

Use bullet points to make your responsibilities stand out and easy to read. Add more bullet points for your more recent and relevant jobs and use fewer bullet points for older jobs. Keep each bullet point brief and to the point.


Try starting your responsibilities with action words for added effect. Using strong and confident words can make your responsibilities, achievements, and skills have a greater impact on the employer.

  • Accomplished
  • Produced
