Retail CVs should reflect what experience you hold in the retail industry that qualifies you for the position that you are currently applying for. The CV should also clearly state what your potential employer can expect from you should they decide to give you the job that you are applying for i.e. What do you have to offer that any other employee cannot offer.
Jobs that one may apply for using a retail CV include trader, retail manager, office manager, shift manager, store manager, salesperson, supervisor, product manager among others. A well written CV will help you to get a job in any of these fields. The CV that you prepare should not be general; it should reflect the job that you are applying for as well as the skills that you possess that will help you carry out that job effectively.
