Tips

  • Making a difference: The key reason why many individuals become Politicians is to make a real difference in the lives of people in their community or country. As a public representative, it is your duty to look after the needs of your constituents and resolve their problems. Your CV should, therefore, mainly focus on the “human side” of politics, including your passion for helping people, getting satisfaction from making a positive difference in the community and proudly representing your local area in national politics.

Good Luck!
