Learning objectives

In this module you will learn how to create a good CV. You will get information on different CV types and formats, CV structure and sections and CV layout.

At the end of this module you should be able to write an effective CV, appropriate to your personal history and experience, and adapted to the requirements of a specific job. Input on sector-specific CVs will be provided during the group coaching session at UAMS.


You should have completed the module on self assessment.


This module consists of 3 parts: theory, practice and case. You can either choose to start reading the theory or, if you prefer a more problem-oriented approach, you can begin with the practice and case head-on.


This module was developed by the University of Antwerp and the University of Antwerp Management School. Team: Liesbeth Opdenacker, Luuk Van Waes and Anne Verheyen.
