CVU • Curriculum Vitae (translated as course of life) provides an overview of a person's life and qualifications. It differs from a résumé in that it is more comprehensive. • Focus more on education then resume. • Personal details at the top, such as name in bold type, address, contact numbers and, an e-mail address. Photos are not required at all, unless requested. • A personal profile, written in either the first or the third person, a short paragraph about the job seeker. • A bulleted list of the job seeker's key skills or professional assets alone is somewhat unsophisticated • A reverse chronological list of the job seeker's educational qualifications and work experience. • A reverse chronological list of the job seeker's education or training, • Date of birth, gender if you have an ambiguous first name.. • The job seeker's hobbies and interests (optional)
Resume Résumé (translates as summary) provides an overview use for seeking employment in the private sector. More focus on a specific purpose or target audience Typical resume includes: • Personal details - Full name and contact details including address, telephone number(s) and email address. • Education and training - A summary of your education and training history, starting with your most recent studies, • Employment history - Start with your most recent work history and work backwards chronologically • Skills and abilities - A list of the things you're good at.

ABN (Australian Business Number) What is an ABN? • The Australian Business Number (ABN) was introduced on 1 July 2000 to enable businesses in Australia to deal with a range of government departments and agencies using a single identification number. • The ABN is a public number which does not replace your tax file number. Why should I apply for an ABN? • The Australian Business Number (ABN) is your key to a quicker and smarter way of dealing with other businesses and government • helps you claim goods and services tax (GST) credits • facilitates a single business activity statement • lets you claim any energy grants credits that you qualify for • stops businesses deducting pay as you go (PAYG) withholding tax from payments to you • allows businesses to easily confirm your details for ordering and invoicing purposes • If your business has an annual turnover of $75,000 or more, you must register for GST and you'll need an ABN to do this. If your business has a lower annual turnover, it's up to you whether you register. • All non-profit organisations with an annual turnover of $150,000 or more must register for GST and therefore need an ABN. Also, businesses that need to be endorsed as a gift deductible recipient or an income tax exempt charity or both, require an ABN. How do I apply for an ABN? You can apply for an ABN online from the Australian Business Register (ABR) web site. If you require further assistance with your application, please call the ATO on 13 28 66. http://www.abr.gov.au/ABR_BC/
