The CV is an overview of your experiences, competencies, merits and your general ‘profile’. You therefore have to limit all the things you include in your CV and find a balance where you include enough information to paint the right picture but still keep the CV clear and easily comprehensible.
This means that every time you need a CV, you have to reconsider what is relevant and how to best communicate your message and target the specific company and job.
Your CV is more important than you might think – most employers skim your CV through as the first thing to see if you match the need – and in many cases they only read your application if your CV is a match. That's why it's a good idea to make sure your CV is relevant, targeted and easy to skim for the person you are sending it to!
