Copy Writer CV

Like a journalist CV, the copy writer CV cannot afford to contain any mistakes. Simple mistakes in grammar and spelling are enough to cause employers to write you off. It is therefore important to go through your CV when you have compiled it for the last time.

Before you begin preparing a copy writer CV, find out more about the company or organization you want to work for. This will help you identify the skills that will most likely be of interest to the recruiters from that specific organization. Copy writing requires creativity, analytical skills, writing skills and computer skills. These should be clearly demonstrated.
