Frequently asked questions.

What is a CV?
A CV or curriculum vitae is a document that showcases your qualifications, education history, work experience and skills. Essentially, it’s a one or two-page summary of everything you’ve achieved in your career so far. Your CV is usually requested by recruiters and employers in the UK as part of the job application process – often alongside a cover letter.
What should I include in my CV?

You should include all relevant information about yourself and your experience in a CV.

The following elements should be included:

  • Name and contact details.
  • Summary of your professional experience.
  • Educational background.
  • Work experience and
  • Key skills (relevant to the role you’re applying for).
  • Interests and hobbies – only if you think they show your rounded character and/or are relevant.
How long should a CV be?
Most recruiters recommend sticking to a maximum of two pages when creating your CV. This should be more than and enough room to include the most relevant information for your application. Play around with different CV templates to see which layout and length works best for your experience.
Do I need to change my CV for each job application?
Yes, you should try to make your CV specific to each role you apply for. That’s where the Adobe Express CV maker can help. Once you’ve picked a template and filled out your CV, you can easily go back and edit or adapt your design for different jobs and companies.
How far back should my CV go?
It usually depends on the relevancy of your work experience. However, a general rule is to only include your past 10 years of experience. This can help keep things super relevant and ensure your CV provides the eye-catching highlights.
Can I get Adobe Express for free? If so, what’s included?
Yes, you can get Adobe Express for free. You’ll find thousands of free templates for you to choose from, plus intuitive features such as drag-and-drop editing, text effects, and collaboration tools. Discover what’s included and learn more with our plans and pricing section.
