Congratulations on creating a draft of your CV! This document will help you present yourself professionally to potential employers, admissions officers, scholarship committees, and other decision-makers.

In this lesson, you created a draft of your CV using a template in Google Docs. First, you chose a template that suited your personal style or the opportunity you are applying for.

Then you replaced the template text with your information.

You added your own Contact Information, Experience, And education.

You decided which sections of the template to fill in, change, or delete to fit your needs. You made a lot of excellent progress, and the most important parts of your CV are complete. However, this is just a draft.

Before submitting your CV for a job or school, there are a few steps left to complete: First, make sure each section of the template is filled in completely.

Proofread your CV closely to correct any spelling or grammatical errors.

Likewise, even though templates are very helpful guides, they cannot guarantee that formatting or spacing errors won’t occur. Be sure to correct any inconsistencies in the layout of your CV, such as missing bullets or differences in font style.

Consider sharing your CV with a friend, family member, or classmate so they can give you additional feedback.

Anytime you want to work on your CV, find it in Google Drive, where it is saved automatically.

Go to Google.com, and sign in to your Google account.

Then, find the CV in your Drive. Or type the file name into the search bar.

Open the file and continue working on your CV.

Congratulations on starting your CV. You are on your way to achieving your professional, educational, or personal goals!
