Preparing a CV when you have experience in your field

The general information in  What makes a good CV? * still applies when you have some relevant experience, even though you may organise your CV differently now.  You must still make sure you target your application towards a specific job.  It's useful to have a basic CV prepared as a starting point but you must always adapt this to demonstrate your knowledge, skills, experience and motivation for a particular job.  

This section deals with aspects of your CV that are specific to making the most of your experience since graduation.

For more information on all stages of the recruitment process see I need help with applications and the recruitment process .  Don't forget how useful your people resources can be in talking through your ideas.
