My Curriculum Vitae (résumé).

Filed under: Achievements & Skills — Matthew @ 11:29 pm

Hi again, here’s my condensed CV as promised. I have included much more than mere writing experience, as I wanted to give a broader view of my skills to prove I am more than capable of producing quality work. Consequently, I have included university and other skills i.e. essay writing, research, IT and more. Furthermore, I’m continually expanding my knowledge of writing; I firmly believe one is never too old to learn. I hope this information gives a clearer picture of the type of person you would be dealing with.

As always, if you have any questions whatsoever please contact me. Thanks for reading.

1998 – 2002 University of Glamorgan: BA (Hons) History & Welsh Studies 2:1

University subjects: as a combined studies’ student. I studied a majority of history and Welsh modules (including Welsh language) plus a variety of independent research projects e.g. Owain Glyndŵr and native Welsh castles. I also worked extensively with computers.

1997 WMCE Treforest

City & Guilds Level 1 – IT Computers & Computing.


Computer and IT Literate:


Internet and IT based research skills.

I am confident that I can make effective use of web/Internet technologies to compile thorough information on most topics.

Libraries/Journals and paper based information skills.

My enthusiasm for information/research is proven by the fact that I planned and chose 4 independent research projects (mini dissertations) throughout the duration of my degree. As a result, I am confident that I am methodical, meticulous and able to compile large amounts of data and information into simple, understandable formats; e.g. compiled field study reports of 25 native Welsh castles into a 3000 word essay.


Microsoft Office (working knowledge) especially Word, and intermediate keyboard skills. Advanced knowledge of the Internet. Extensive, practical experience of using the Linux operating system, which I am currently using and have done for the past 2 years.

Java Programming Basic knowledge.

Web Design Intermediate knowledge.

Personal Skills:

Thorough and meticulous eye for detail

I am frequently asked, by family and friends, to proofread text as I have an excellent, scrupulous eye for detail.


I completed my degree with a 2:1 grade and maintained my family commitments.

Effective planning and time management

The combined studies degree programme allowed me to plan my own agenda. This, out of necessity, required me to be more autonomous and to research the modules more thoroughly to ensure I designed a coherent programme that suited my research and analytical preferences. In fact, I prefer to work with the minimum of supervision.

Intellectual challenge

This is my main motivation in life; studying at university – late in life – being a prime example.
