Resume format  

The electronic form of the document is a matter of course today. For example, use the text editor Word, you can then save the file in PDF format so that it can no longer be changed. If you want to stand out, you can choose from the available patterns and templates. But remember, especially when creating documents like CVs, less is more and don't overdo it with your creativity. The length of the CV itself is also important. Consultants go through dozens of resumes every day and therefore appreciate brevity, 1, max. 2 A4 pages are ideal. Additional information may be provided in the cover/motivation letter.

What should a resume contain?

Basic data:

  • name and surname
  • birthdate
  • home address
  • telephone number
  • e-mail address

Check the contact details carefully.

A key part of a CV is information about your work experience. Sort them chronologically from newest to oldest. Enter the given period, name of the employer, place of work, job position and briefly complete the main activities. Does your practice have “blind spots”? Don't be afraid to mention, for example, study leave, career break, retraining or travel. Be honest and be prepared to be asked for details.

The performance of some professions requires a relevant professional education or a requirement for a minimum level of education. Put in the period of study, the name of the school, the field of study and the degree achieved. If you have a high school education, you do not need to write down your primary school. Did you study a different field? Does not matter. Proven experience is more often the deciding factor.

Don't forget to add language skills including your level, computer skills and other skills - ideally those related to the job. If you are applying for a position where active knowledge of English or another language is required, attach your CV in that language.

The completed courses and further education also report positively on your activity. Do you have an interesting hobby? Don't be shy to include them at the end of your resume. 

Our tips:

  • clarity - use spaces, bullet points, bold font, don't overdo it with colours, beware of excessive originality
  • brevity - state only the essentials with regard to the selected job position
  • spelling - avoid mistakes in the document, let your resume checked if necessary
  • truthfulness - always provide correct and truthful information, detected inaccuracies, for example in the stated language skills, do not look good and can lead to exclusion from the selection process
  • checking - before sending your response e-mail, check that you have attached all the required information (CV, motivation letter), check the correct addressee, i.e. the name of the potential employer or recruitment agency and do not forget the correct name of the position you are applying for
