How to prepare a CV

We would like to provide the general rules on writing a CV, as agency consultants who discuss CVs of candidates that we provide to our clients:

– Good CV should not be more than two pages.
– It is better to use a common font, such as Times New Roman or Ariel. Avoid fancy fonts as they may not be read on other computer.

Desirable position

- It is preferable to specify an exact job title that you would like to find. Do not list several positions, especially if they are very different from each other, HR specialist can get lost.
- It is better to create a separate CV for every position.

Personal information

– The most important is to make your contact information noticeable and readable. Provide contacts, where you can be QUICKLY found, especially if you review offers and are interested in finding a job. Contacts can be included in the headline so that they would appear on each page.
– Specify your age, place of residence (you do not need to mention entrance number and the floor), but your area (especially if you live in a big city) and the city are desirable, relationship status, age of children.

Education

– Begin with basic higher educational institutions, it is also advisable to mention your GPA, if you are A-level student.
– Next – advanced training courses in your main specialty.
- If you have certificates in your specialty — do not forget to mention them.
– Graduates are advised to provide the topic of their thesis, or internship.

Try to avoid unnecessary information:

– Courses having no relation to work.
- School and kindergarten.

Experience

– The first line is your current/last place of work. If you are not on the staff or are on outsourcing — write the name of the head company, the brand under which your company works.
– Always use exact dates (month and year) for work experience.
– The job title has to reflect the essence of your position instead of formality of the service record. Very few people will understand how the leading specialist is different from the chief specialist.
– Duties: provide clear and concrete information. Do not write about something that you have never done. Though, it is worth mentioning something that you have had experience with, even if not much.
- After each place of work do not forget to include your achievements and specific results. It is difficult sometimes, especially for some specialties, but you can always manage a couple of lines.

Professional skills

– Describe your main competences, your particular strengths and areas of competence.
– Do you know any foreign language besides Russian and Ukrainian? if yes — include the level of proficiency, best of all, in foreign terminology.
– Extra skills that you consider important for your work.

Additional information

- Include any publications, club memberships, hobbies, anything that tells about your personality.

Remuneration level

- Indicate whether you want to be offered no more than what you want. Some state a lower level in order to receive more offers, and others make it higher, expecting that nobody will guess the real income. All in all, it is a reason for discussions and negotiations.

CV Don’ts

- Do not make it a table with text in a separate line.
- Do not make it featureless, using generic phrases copied from others.
- Do not make it too short or too long, turning it into job definition.
