CV Workshop

Some basic advice for you CV:

  1. Place a short paragraph at the top of your CV explainging what added value do you bring to a position, based on all the work experience you have so far (from all positions)
  2. Explain what did you do at each position you held and what value did you bring - not the job description
  3. Include in your CV keywords that are relevant to the position you are applying to
  4. Keep your CV clean with the most important information at the top of the page - this is your most valuable real estate on your CVs, the area with the highest chance of being read (and where decision to read further are made)
  5. In general, for most positions your academic background is not as important as you think, push it to the bottom of your CV

This might merit a post by itself one day
