[This information goes on page 3.] PROFESSIONAL HISTORY Position, Employer, Month & Year Began to Present or Month & Year Ended Responsibilities: Outline the responsibilities the job entailed.
eg. The job entailed caring for children between the ages of 5 and 10, preparing a healthy afternoon tea, general cleaning and centre maintenance work, and also required that staff meetings be attended on a bimonthly basis and that training and certifications were current and up-to-date.

[List these in order of most current to least current. List all your jobs that you had for a period longer than a month, including seasonal work. If you feel the job isn’t very relevant, list it but make the responsibilities section no longer than a sentence. Try to keep these to one page if possible.]

VOLUNTEER WORK Junior Soccer Coach, Generic Soccer Club, 2007 to Present Responsibilities: As a coach, it is my responsibility to teach my players the fundamental basics of the game, in an encouraging and fun-filled way, so as to encourage them to become life-long players with our club. I endeavour to create team-orientated goals within my players, and to actively involve my players and their parents in our team’s successes. Door Knocking, Daffodil Day, Cancer Council, 2004 to 2008 Responsibilities: Travelling by foot door-to-door, asking for donations and promoting awareness of cancer and the upcoming Daffodil Day events. I was required to present a friendly and welcoming outlook, and to be sensitive to the reaction of people as they opened the door, so as to maintain a positive representation of the foundation and to accept rejection graciously. [List these in order of most current to least current. List all volunteer work, obtained personally in spare time, through your education, vacation or work practicals, etc. Try to keep these to one page if possible. BEST OPTION would be to limit both Professional History and Volunteer History to one page each OR cover both Professional History and Volunteer History on the same page.]

EDUCATION [Begin with your earliest Education, and end with your most recent education.]

[If you are a school leaver, your High School education and results may be of importance. If you are a University student, results from your degree may be of importance. If you are a Tradesperson, the completion of any certificates, TAFE courses, training or tickets may be of importance. If you completed your education more than five years ago, then you are less likely to re quire in-depth information concerning your education, and should, if possible, merely state your highest level of education attainment in a section prior to Professional History.] [End of Education.] [Example of Education.]
