As well as designing the helicopter and painting the Mona Lisa, in 1482, Leonardo Da Vinci produced the first Curriculum Vitae – a list of his accomplishments sent to the Duke of Milan as he looked for work.

But over 500 years later, what place does the Curriculum Vitae have in the modern workplace?

We polled 2000 British workers to find out their attitudes towards using a CV to apply for jobs – and explored how often we bend the truth on them in order to impress.

We also looked at the hiring processes of global companies and recruiters, to find out how and why the perception of the value of the resume had changed.

The result – a report exploring the CV in 2023, and beyond!
