About the resume

One of the milestones of the job search is the compilation of the CV. Be thorough, because a good CV is half the battle, it gives the first impression of you, which can often be decisive. Prove that you are the most suitable person for the given position.

The CV should:

  • transparent, easy to read: it is important that the employer immediately finds the detail she is interested in in the CV.
  • short: CVs longer than 1-2 pages are not read by prospective employers. (the cover letter should be a maximum of 1 page)
  • factual: it is important to emphasize the essence, the facts; no need to write a novel!
  • typewritten: the CV is more transparent with the help of a computer text editor. It may happen that they ask for a handwritten CV, the purpose of which is usually to create a profile of the applicant. In these cases too, a typed biography should be included so that the appraisers can do their work more easily.
  • perfect: spelling is very important (especially names), so it's worth reading it several times before we hand it out!
  • Do not mention our payment request in your CV or cover letter!

The CV should include the following points:

1. Personal data: year of birth, place, notification and residential address, phone number, e-mail address, fax, marital status, citizenship

2. Studies:

3. Special trainings, scientific works: it is worth listing those that can be associated with the applied position.

4. Work experience, professional practice:

5. Language skills: list which language you use at what level, and when and what exam you passed in the given language! (the level according to the exam is not necessarily the same as the actual knowledge!)

6. Computer skills: list the software that we know at the user level, or on which we can program.

7. Driving skills

8. Other: any other skills, areas of interest and related knowledge can be listed, e.g.: typing skills, hobbies

If you are a recent graduate with relatively little work experience, but at the same time with extensive theoretical knowledge, follow the above order when writing your biography. Later, when you have more experience in the labor market, it will be worthwhile to put point 4 before points 2 and 3, because by then your strength will probably be practical skills.
