A brief description

year. Other diplomas, certificates etc.

Areas of expertise

Personal Details

No need to give your address because employers won’t send you a letter by post in this era. They usually prefer  E-mails or they will contact you by phone. So avoid lengthy address line & links to your social media profile such as Facebook, Skype, Twitter etc but you can give a link to your LinkedIn profile in soft copy. References can be given to employers on request.

Covering Letter

Cover letter is more polite way of asking for a job. You can write a brief summary about yourself & your experience. Ask if there is any vacancy in their company or ask them to keep your CV for any future opportunities.
