01

In what regard? To a person or in a division, or something else entirely?

02

The personal pronoun here is both distracting and inconsistent with the rest of the document.

03

Are there any worth referencing?

In this field you may wish to highlight a variety of clients and catering for different markets. This would help to express the scope of your freelance experience.

04

Whilst the terminology here is correct, it does also sound a little colloquial, particularly on that first, 30-second viewing. Can this be made slightly more formal in language?

05

Full addresses are probably not required at this stage. The only circumstances where addresses should be on a CV are your own contact address, and also possibly those of your two referees.

06

What role did you play within this?

07

The styling of the bullet-points here is inconsistent with the majority of the document.

08

How did you go about doing this? Promotion can occur in a variety of different forms.

09

Which departments were these? The employer will only gain a clear impression of your experience if you explain such details as this.

10

Think about the wider implications of this - did you have to fund this yourself?

11

Any reference to a dissertation or seminar/coursework/project work?

12

This is quite a bulky section with a lot thrown into it.

Remember, you do not have to include everything you have ever done, though it is true that this is a sector where further interests may well colour your character more suitably for the job.

13

This is a sector in which the employer may be interested to see such things as your portfolio, so including details of your blog may be worthwhile.
