Reflecting on your achievements and recording your experience.
The Latin ‘Curriculum vitae' actually means 'the course of your life'. We suggest you create an extended CV in your first year then continue to add to and maintain the document throughout your degree course. The point of this extended curriculum is to encourage you to record your achievements and experiences. By doing this exercise, you can create a CV when you need to, by editing and tailoring your extended CV.
A good CV should contain the 'edited highlights' that will sell you to a prospective employer. Effectively prospective graduate employers are seeking knowledge, skills and experience from candidates, and a CV is your opportunity to present these attributes.
