    Try and keep it to 2 pages or less, which shouldn't be too much of an issue if he's not got a great deal of work experience.

    I've had to do mine recently as I'm looking for a job and goes along these lines:

    Name, address and 'phone number;
    Personal statement - 3 or 4 lines with your key skills and attributes;
    Key Skills - a couple of lines on each one. Aim for 6 or so skills;
    Personal Strengths and Attributes - just one word on these, list of around 8 or so;
    Career History - most recent first, break down each into Responsibilities and Key Achievements - make sure that these link back to the Key skills and Strengths/Attributes;
    Training and Qualifications;
    Interests;
    Personal - married status, DOB, mobility and health.

    Happy to email you a copy if you want a look, and promise not to laugh:lmao:
