Split your CV into subheadings such as: Personal profile, employment/work experience history, education/training history, interests and achievements, additonal information and references.

A greater detail on how to write each section is below.

Make sure every CV is tailored to the job and company you are applying for; make it specific, not generic.

A cover letter is your chance to sell yourself to an employer. Show them why you want this job, explain why the role appealed to you and how it will benefit you and the company. Include skills and previous experience as examples to back up your statements. Make sure you tailor your cover letter to the role and company you apply for. So this could be anything relevant that you've done (coursework, previous work experience, etc..) that could be useful when working in the role.
