Tips for writing a CV

Although writing a CV correctly may seem relatively easy, perhaps a few tips and useful advice will come in handy so that you can avoid possible problems.

Remember one simple rule: precision – brevity – clarity, and of course, truthfulness. The most important information must be at the beginning, so stick to the following structure:

  • Your name and contact details
  • Education and special courses
  • All your previous jobs (period, name of the position you held, name of your employer) listed in reverse chronological order from your current position
  • Then indicate your skills: computer skills, foreign languages, other skills, certificates/permits (drivers licence)
  • Your hobbies

Catch your employer’s interest

Ideally, you should combine your CV with a covering letter, which gives you the opportunity to catch your potential employer’s interest and stand out. Be creative and forget those pre-prepared forms on the internet. Employers always appreciate originality. In your letter, explain what you can offer, what you would like to focus on in your work and what motivated you to apply for this specific job.
