    There is a trend at the moment for putting a little one-liner under your name, such as "Marketing Manager opening up new possibilities". It is recommended although I find it quite trite.

    NAME
    PERSONAL DETAILS
    (PERSONAL STATEMENT)
    EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS
    WORK EXPERIENCE
    OTHER SKILLS AND PERSONAL INTERESTS

    Should do it.

    I tend to not put references on unless they are specifically asked for. Otherwise I just say 'appropriate references are available upon request' - make sure you ask your referee's permission before you give out their details.

    Tailor your CV to each job you apply for (i.e. highlight relevant things - change the order around etc). There are no real rules of CV writing except - no spelling mistakes, good grammar and it should highlight who you are and what skills you will bring to that particular organisation.


    Good luck!

    I would only include a personal statement if you aren't including a covering letter. They both serve the same purpose which is to highlight and direct the reader to the important parts of your CV for this particular position that you have applied for. Have a think about what they will be looking for and see what you can bring out of your CV to reflect this.

    they want a cv and covering letter so i would assume my covering letter would expand on the jobs ive done and my interests??

    damn the complication of it all

    The cover letter is you chance to highlight your most important skills and qualities and impress upon the selectors that you are the best candidate.

    No need for a personal statement.
