What Shall I Put On My Cv?

Recommended Posts

I am doing my CV like this:

Profile: bit about me and my situation

Then straight into my employment history with is all in the field of IT.

Then I am listing my qualifications including my degree and TEFL cert.

Is there anything I can add to it to make it more teacher-y or do they expect this type of CV from people with no relevant exerpeince?

Also, should I put a photo in my in the Word document?

Thanks.

Did you visit real schools for your teaching practices on your TEFL course? You should have. You can list those schools under experience on your CV.

A formal photo is good. It helps employers remember your CV.

Don't do it that way. As you have not really got any real teaching experience, do a "skills" style CV and then you can easily highlight the skills and experience that you have gained that are teacher/teaching related. Search the web, visit the library, or a good bookshop to see how to format a "skills" style CV.

Good luck.

Hi HalfSquat

A photo does help, do you have mentoring experience within your field, any training experience will help to convince a prospective employer that you have the core skills to impart knowledge, Loaded also gave a good tip.

Good Luck

Most importantly, the truth...

Excellent advice! And, in preparation for an interview think seriously about how you are going to answer any question about lack of experience. I'm assuming there will be other candidates with experience, so you will need to be able to demonstrate how you are more valuable a candidate than are they.
