Creating a C.V

A while ago we had a talk about how to create a professional c.v and a creative c.v and what are the differences between both of them. I learned alot from the lecture  which i will be able to put into good use when creating my c.v’s.

Creative C.V

In my creative C.V I will talk about a role in the games industry I want to achieve, I will place images of work on them along with a link to my portfolio, I will talk about all of the skills I have learned over the last few years.
