Tips on how to prepare your CV


1. Use English only!

We are matching jobseekers and employers from all over Europe, so we must use a single language. If you use another language we will not find you in our database nor will we be able to send your CV to our employers! If you have troubles writing your CV in English, please contact your local Adviser.


2. Be careful to the contacts you insert

Be prepared to receive a short phone call, e-mail, skype call after you have sent your CV to us. Add more than one contact: e-mail address, phone number, mobile number, skype... so that we can reach you. And don’t forget to update your CV if you change any contact.


3. Give useful information about yourself

Your CV should answer the following questions: What are you specialised in? (your professional strengths) What exactly is your work experience? (if it is your first job: experience from internships, apprenticeship, etc.!) What results/successes have you achieved in your work (internship, apprenticeship, etc.)?


4. Make it keyword friendly

We use keywords in our matching procedures, so make sure to use them!


5. Add a good photo

Photos are not obligatory, but they can increase your chances enormously! But be careful when you choose your photo: nothing too personal!


6. Check it twice!

Check for mistakes (typos or grammatical errors); a CV with errors doesn’t look good! There is a print option on the Platform: print your CV once you have finished it and check it again…


7. Keep your CV up-dated

Every time something significant occurs in your career, record it so you don't later forget something that could be important.
