How to create a good CV
Remember, your resume is your first chance to convey your skills and experience to prospective employers. It is a snapshot of your personality, skills, education, work history and other achievements.
Present your experience clearly
Highlight examples of skills and experience relevant to the job you are applying for. Please pay attention to the details included in the recruitment advertisement.
Tailor your CV
Make sure you update the ‘About Me’ section to highlight why you are the best person for the job. Do not include a full detailed history. Focus on facts and main points that match the job you have in mind.
Make it readable
Make sure your CV is easy to read. Use clear and simple language. Use strong verbs (e.g. ‘managed’, ‘developed’, ‘increased’).
Use reverse chronological order
Always list the most recent experience on the top followed by previous ones. In case of long gaps in working or learning, include an explanation.
Polish and fine-tune
Check for spelling and grammar mistakes, provide a professional e-mail address, and add a professional photograph of yourself.
Your Europass profile
Your Europass profile is the place to keep a record of all your skills, qualifications and experiences. If you keep your Europass profile up-to-date then you will always have all the information you need to create tailored CVs and job applications quickly.
Good luck with your applications!
