CV WORKSHOP

💭The two most important things to find a job are our skills (formal and soft-skills) and our attitude when selling ourselves. But what is more important nowadays is to know how to show all these things in a good CV. 

The CV is the first information that the employer receives from us. Without seeing us, without talking to us, the CV serves as a great sieve in selecting candidates. 📑

That’s why we want to help you to make a good CV!!!

Here are some sample templates that you can fill out and send to us later so that we can give you some first-hand advice (You can contact us through this page if you have any problems using the templates). Once you fill out the CV you can upload it here and we will give you feedback 😄

Important points for your CV:

✔️ There can be no spelling mistakes in the CV.

✔️ Use a formal email for the contact section. For example, it cannot be myfavouriteblondie18@gmail.com. It can be, for example, johansson.william05@gmail.com 

✔️ If you decide to use a photo, it has to be a photo in which you appear normal and smiling. 

✔️ If you are proficient in languages and/or digital skills, don’t forget to mention it.

✔️ When we talk about training and experience, we have to put the duration. We can put hours and the year or from what date to what date, but the format must be consistent. 

✔️ If we do not have much experience, remember that all knowledge is essential! When we don’t have long-term experience, any volunteering or work counts (e.g. babysitting, a waiter in my grandfather’s bar, editor of the university newspaper, volunteering in x,…).

✔️ Also, any kind of information is essential. If you have a university education, do not put that you finished high school, but if the highest degree you have is high school, put it. Also, add any courses or training you consider relevant for: the company’s reputation, the knowledge you acquired, show something about you…

✔️ If you have many experiences and none of them is related to the job offer, you can talk about all of them and your skills. On the other hand, if the job offer is related to some of your previous experiences, try to highlight that experience or training more than the rest.

✔️ When you mention training or work experience, remember to highlight 2 or 3 points of what you learned. 

✔️ Although it may be hard to think about it, we all have skills that we can put on our CVs. Here we leave you a list with examples so that you can look for the ones that represent you the most:
