Transcript:Quick Tip: How to Write a CV Qualifications Section

Hi, this is Christopher Berrien for About.com, and today we're going to talk about how to write a CV qualifications section.

Why Include a Qualifications Section

CVs in the United States tend to be aimed at academic and other professional positions, and it is important that you be extensive and complete.
