CVs: an overview
Using CV builders
There are several online tools to help you organise and present your information. They’re useful if you don’t feel confident designing your own from scratch but may not always be suited to the complexities of a more developed career. In addition, some online tools are not fully accessible to screen readers. In such instances, you may prefer the freedom to design your own CV on a word processor using the suggested formats included in this article.
