Don't be exhaustive. Bullet-point the aspects of yourself which the company want to pay you for, and keep it to one page.

Google for example CV's, you'll want a basic one that covers education and previous experience

Don't say anything negative about yourself
Don't use more than one type of font
Don't include your photo of yourself
Don't lie about yourself

Make sure your CV is no longer than 2 pages
Make sure it looks neat and follows a structure
Make sure to highlight your relevant skills and achievments that would impress an employer
Make sure to include any work experience/voluntary work/hobbies and interests

Here following things you should include in CV :
Personal information: It is quite essential to include the full name, email address, contact number and address on CV. Also, ensure that they are mentioned on top of the CV.
A statement about yourself: This gives you a scope to tell about yourself and get the attention of the reader. Use this to show your achievements and share your career aspirations too. The trick is that you need to customize the statement to the job description or role.
Work Experience: While writing about the work history, include experiences relevant to the job at hand. Your CV must show you as the best candidate of the lot. If you have less or no experience, think about skills that might help you in the role.
Education: Mention earlier education and educational institutions with a year of attendance and also write about achievements or grades.
Skills & Qualifications: Write about qualifications from either work experience or education which are related to the role.
Interests & Hobbies: Though not necessary, but if you are a fresher and you have less to mention about the experience, you need to write about your hobby and interests too.
References: It is suggested not to include name and contact of references on CV. Always ask permission from a referee before passing on the details to an employer.
