Transcript

In the previous video, you filled in each company or organisation where you worked, their locations, your role, and the dates you worked there.

The experience section of your CV also includes brief descriptions of your responsibilities, the skills you used, and any achievements related to the time you spent at each place.

In this video, you will brainstorm the responsibilities, skills, and achievements you gained in your previous roles and add them to your CV. Think about your most recent role first: Describe your responsibilities.

Describe the skills you gained.

And describe any achievements you had while you were there.

For now, write down anything you can think of. You can edit your descriptions to be more clear and professional later.

Continue writing descriptions for each position you held.

Then, move on to the next video to add information about your education to your CV. Now, it’s your turn: Describe your responsibilities, skills, and achievements for each job or experience on your CV.
