    We can see on the left hand side of the page there is the "Full Name," first and last and also using the middle initial. It's in bold and a slightly larger font. Below the name are a couple of blank spaces and continues with the mailing "Address," the "Mobile" number, as well as the "Email" address.

    On the right side of the page we can see a "Photo," called a headshot. This is a professional looking photograph from the shoulders up. This is typically included on a CV for the European market; even the Asian and Middle Eastern markets as well. It is typically recommended to the left off if applying in the United States. We can have two formats of the CV or even more, depending on the market on which we are applying.

    In order to have these areas line up perfectly, the demonstrator inserted a table with one row and two columns into the Word document above the dividing line. All the lines are hidden except for the bottom one.

    The black dividing line is the bottom line of the table but the side, top, and center lines are completely removed. It is important when we create the CV that we do not submit a table. The table is only used to get the two areas to line up nicely and professionally but them make sure to remove the lines. This is so that the person receiving the document does not see a table on the screen, which does not look very professional.
