Book Reviewer CV Template

The job of a professional Book Reviewer is to read new literary and journalistic works and provide an expert commentary on whether they are worth reading at all. Some days, the job is rewarding, while most are not as they often have to read through some of the most atrocious reads ever published just so others won’t suffer the same thing. They are often retained by publishers or work as freelance reviewers. A resume for the position would need a portfolio or membership in book review clubs or listing of books reviewed that have been published.
