1. Personal information
- name and surname
- phone number
- optional: date of birth, nationality, marital status, age, gender, date of availability
Especially when there is no room for a cover letter (e.g. online forms), people like to include a profile-section in their CV. In this section you briefly state what kind of person you are and what skills you have. The more you adjust your profile to each individual job the better.
3. Professional goal
This optional section allows you to briefly summarise what your ideal job and future career goals are like.
Organise your relevant skills for the job under different headings and give brief examples for each skill.
5. Professional experience / career history
Include the following:
- job title
- start and end date
- name and location of employer
- optional: tasks and assignments, accomplishments
Use the reverse chronological order and provide the following information:
- name of the program
- start and end date of the program
- name and location of the school
If relevant, you can include major courses and dissertations, but be brief with information about education if experience is more important.
7. Other skills
Use the "Skills" section to highlight skills and abilities that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Only include references if asked for. Note that a reference can refer to a person as well as a document.
