One of the most important parts of your CV is the experience section. This is where you share detailed information about your work and volunteer history.

In this video, you will add your work experience to your CV draft.

There are many different types of experiences that could be relevant. Think about the jobs and volunteer positions you have had in the past. Perhaps you helped a relative who was moving to a new town. You could highlight your organisational skills in your CV. Or maybe you collected donations for a charity in a community boot sale. You could list fundraising as part of your experience. In a CV, experience is listed with the most recent positions at the top. So list your work experience now, with your most recent job first. Fill in the company or organisation name, the location, your position or job title, and the dates you worked there. You will add descriptions of each job in the next video.

Continue adding positions until you have at least three work, volunteer, or other relevant experiences listed.

If you need to reorder the list, highlight the text you want to move. Then, cut it.

Place your cursor in the document where you want the information moved. Then, paste it in.

Don’t worry if the formatting or spacing isn’t perfect. This is just a draft, you can correct errors later.

Once you have at least three experiences on your CV draft, move on to the next video to add descriptions for each role. Now, it’s your turn: Fill in your work, volunteer, and other relevant experience, with your most recent position first. Include the company or organisation name, the location, your role, and the dates you worked there.

And use cut and paste to organise your experience with the most recent position first.
