How to write a CV
Your CV is the first contact with your future employer. Do you know how to write the right CV to secure your next role?
Basic rule for a CV:
Are you interested in a received CV? Your CV is written for your future employer, not for yourself. Your CV must be relevant, brief and mainly well structured.
What your CV must include
- Personal and contact details
- Education + training courses and study programs abroad
- Job experience from the most recent to the oldest
- Language skills, computer skills
- Other skills or knowledge, certificates and licences
- Driving licence
What you are not obliged to write in your CV
You do not need to write intimate or delicate details: gender, family status, number of children, health or information about your criminal record.
Three other useful tips for your CV
Be ready to explain every detail of your CV
You can closely discus each item of your CV during the interview. You should know what you have written but do not memorise it.
Write more CV´s
Every company is different and is also looking for different candidates with specific skills. Modify your CV to the role you are applying for. Make sure that your CV has all details written in the job advertisement.
Keep your CV updated
You never know what work opportunity you will come across. Be prepared and always have an updated CV so you will not be overtaken by another candidate for the role.
