Why do you need a CV?
A CV is a standardized form of self-introduction to an employer. If an employer offers a job by sticking ads on a pillar, you are likely to get a job without a CV, but creating a CV only shows a certain sense of responsibility for the job, and personalized to a specific employer shows your serious purpose for a specific job . Be sure to check with your employer, at least the information that is available to you. This will be useful not only for you when writing your CV, but also for your future job interview. Find out about the achievements and achievements of your employer’s company and relate it to your employability. Remember that you will probably need to compete and that first impression often determines almost everything. Don’t tell yourself it’s not worth sending a CV. If you need this job, send it even if you do not fully meet the selection criteria. After all, it is often the case that the selection criteria are drawn up by the administrator (s) and that the selection process itself is carried out by senior management. Therefore, it is quite possible that they will focus on your other qualities or traits, rather than just meeting the basic requirements for the selection criteria.
Why a cover letter?
It has been noticed that people who have been out of work for a long time and are frustrated with everything are just sending their resumes chaotically, without going to anyone or sending them several times. In the recruitment process, you have had to obtain the same CV three times for the same job advertisement, and for another job the same CV four times. Just a CV with no explanation. It is clear that such a person has no employment plan, no employment philosophy and no guidelines to follow. The motivation for applying for a certain job is not fully disclosed to the employer. I understand that the motivation of such people could be: I have to be noticed and then I think. Then you need to think about how to get you noticed and the reasons why you are seeking a particular job. It is actually you who choose, but the employer has to recruit. So convince him with good arguments. Avoid intrusive and unnecessary emailing or calling. Do whatever is up to you and wait. Don’t be lazy to write at least a generic cover letter. Obviously, personalizing your cover letter when applying for a specific job will make it much easier and easier for those involved in the selection process. You have to be interested. Provide a reason for your employment and a favorable decision in your favor.
What documents should the prospective employer send in the first letter? Do you attach diplomas, course certificates, etc. copies of documents?
Initially, unless otherwise required, two documents are sufficient: a CV for self-presentation and a cover letter to substantiate your presentation. Do not overload your prospective employer with unnecessary information, just write your achievements on a resume and write a cover letter if you want to highlight something.
What is the Curriculum Vitae to be?
Sincere and flattering. Of course, there is something to beautify or select, but it must be clear and understandable to the employer. It is not so much what font you choose or what margins you make (obviously if you are not in office work), but how you present yourself. The facts of experience and learning and the qualities that are unique to a particular job are very important and significant.
Can a CV be written by hand?
Both hand and chalk are available. Just know what your goal is. If you need a daily newspaper for your job and you write very nicely, it might be a good idea to write by hand and with a stylus pen, but if you want to get a job as an IT professional, it’s hardly a wise decision.
What is a Europass CV?
Europass CV – A curriculum vitae of a European standard. Yes and no otherwise? In general, it depends on the job you are applying for. It is possible to “break the standards” if you have thoughts, ideas, and are a creative person who can realize your ideas. Then start with your resume. Send a message to the prospective employer and “fall out” of the format. Will you succeed?
Can you send me a resume template?
We cannot because it goes against our business philosophy. Everyone lives differently and according to their own template. It is not even clear what that resume template should be. It’s the same as asking us to send you a snapshot of your future bride with a description of where and when you will meet her. There are many examples and templates on the Internet, but we work individually and each case is unique to us.
What can you advise if a person is out of work for more than two years?
Review your search methodology, set search goals, and formulate tasks for yourself to accomplish your goal. In short, keep your hands down and look further, just think about whether you are doing everything right or whether it is worth changing something. For example: presentation form, appearance, etc. Let’s say it is your right to walk in torn jeans, but you are unlikely to get a job as a head of some legal department when you come for a job interview with that outfit. Every profession has its own dress code, however undemocratic it may seem.

Suggest a CV to draw the attention of your employer.
Write your CV on a piece of yellowish-green paper. You will certainly pay attention, but will you be interested? MaybeJ Paying attention is very important, just don’t overdo it so that exclusivity doesn’t look like stupidity.
What are the most common mistakes when writing a CV?
The main mistake is writing a lot of unnecessary words “embellishments” and uninformative phrases. Not everyone writes that they love reading books, but your employer may be able to read and ask you about your reading experience by asking specific questions. It would be a shame if you lied and formed the image of an untrustworthy person. Don’t lie, but pick the right words. For example: I read as much as possible, and I was impressed by the book X.
Very often you have to shorten already written CVs. It only matters what matters and only what matters. Your employer is least willing to find out where you lied and where you wrote the truth. Therefore, try to argue or explain each statement briefly but reasonably. Highlight the experience that is or may be relevant to the job you are applying for.
Is it necessary to put a picture on my CV?
Not necessary, but certainly not hurt. Visual information about a person is also very important. Of course, you have a lot of beautiful photos, but it is advisable to put only the right photo on your CV, unless the nature of the job determines otherwise.
Can supplements be considered as pay?
The salary of employees is divided into two parts: tariff and bonuses, bonuses, bonuses. Bonuses, bonuses and allowances are variable components of pay, which are determined by reference to the employee’s professional characteristics, the quality and quantity of the work he or she performs, and other factors.
Can I send the same CV to different employers?
Of course you can. Mostly people only know specifically the segment of the job they would like to work in. It is enough to have one good curriculum vitae, unless you know exactly where you want to go and what position you want to take, then it is definitely worth taking a step further: gathering as much information as possible about the job you are applying for,
Why does your employer need a cover letter?
First of all, you need a cover letter to motivate your position as to why you should be recruited. The curriculum vitae is the reference medium for the factual information about you, and in the cover letter you set out your motives for getting a job. The motives should be honestly rational. It is understood that a person without experience may have the most important motive for gaining employment and gaining such experience, while reward may be of secondary importance, while for a man with a large family, wages will probably be a very important factor. Your sincere motives, meeting your employer’s expectations, may be a prime reason for hiring you.
Which employers should be avoided?
It happens that only an established company promises huge salaries or other “gold mountains” far higher than the incumbents who do the same. We do not say this cannot be the case, but prudence would not hurt, so we recommend first making sure that the company is able to pay the kind of reward it promises. This usually depends on the company’s actual revenue – cost ratio and its intensity.
What is the ideal scope of a CV?
The CV should not exceed one or two A4 size standard pages.
Why don’t employers call back to report a negative response?
They simply may not have enough time to go through a lot of CVs, interviews with applicants, which usually last from 30 minutes to 1 hour, so all they have to do is interview, select and recruit the best candidate. For other things, they just don’t have the physical time. In some companies, recruitment specialists still perform many other functions, so they simply do not have enough time.
What is the structure of the CV?
Your CV should include:
- contact information, photo;

- education (copies of diplomas, certificates, etc.);
- achievements and recommendations.
The order may be another.
What to write on a CV for recent graduates with no work experience?
You should simply state what practice you did, where you did it, what your main functions were, or if you were still working in the summertime (you should write down exactly where you were).
What format is better for sending my CV?
We recommend the standardized Europass format, but there is nothing to stop you from choosing a unique CV, style or format.
What are the main mistakes in your CV?
The most serious and the most striking are the grammatical errors, so make sure you do not include those mistakes in your curriculum vitae. Another mistake is CV templateing. Whoever has been involved in recruiting knows that almost half of all CVs are almost identical and uninformative, especially in those sections where personal qualities and hobbies are concerned, almost everyone is dutiful, hardworking, loyal, caring, honest, almost everyone loves to travel, read and to be innovative, strive to be unique.
Use professional jargon on CV?
It depends on who will read and pre-select your CV. The initial “filtering” of the CV by the supervisor may be done by the office administrator (s) or secretary and your special jargon will simply be misunderstood or even illiterated, as these employees are not required to know all the nuances of your professional subtlety. If you decide to use professional jargon, we believe this is best done in the cover letter, where this jargon can serve to define the extent of your interest in a particular profession or profession.
How to explain unemployment gaps in your career?
We advise interpretation in a very simple, understandable, honest and clear manner. Your life is for you only, so you have no obligation to justify how you live, work with or without breaks, study, raise children or care for the sick, and if your potential employer already has questions, say it as it is because you are lying, you will probably still be exposed to your gap in time from the labor market. Especially since nowadays the possibility of employment is determined not by the type and format of previous employment, but by specific work motivation, subject-matter characteristics, and various (not only work) experience for a particular job or position.
What are the main mistakes of a cover letter?
The cover letter should reveal the employee’s attitude towards the job, its essential stimuli for the job. The potential employer needs to understand from the cover letter what motivates you and encourages you to apply for a job. Substantial errors are a cover letter that is too long to transfer essentially all of the information from the CV; the cover letter must be concise but also specifically detailed. We recommend you to write longer cover letters when your workplace is uniquely unique in terms of the nature of your job, with very few or no candidates applying for it, or where you are seeking regular employment in popular and popular occupations, the cover letter could range from half to full A4 size.
At university, I was involved in organizing events and had a great finish. Do I need to specify this on my CV?
You should think for yourself how significant this is for a potential employer. If you were a great graduate of the university and had a great run 20 years ago, and after graduating all 20 years on the career ladder and in your professional, professional activities, then it is clear that your student achievement will look strange and ridiculously professional achievements. However, in a completely different case, if a person has no work experience but has worked hard and had a good education at a university or other educational institution, then it would be worthwhile to highlight all the most significant achievements and achievements.
What are the major mistakes in finding a job?
First of all, you have to come up or we can make a job search plan for you. When you do not know what you are looking for, you also do not know what you are looking for. It does not mean that a well-publicized employer is really looking for an employee; Always evaluate the real situation on the job market and take a critical look at yourself from the point of view of your employer to see if you have 50 candidates, similar to your CV, for your application. If you do not choose such a candidate, then at least temporarily let go of the demands of your job. Look critically at your employer as well. In the real world, employers who offer very good salaries also fall into millions in debt, so the employer’s credit risk element should be assessed as much as possible. Don’t be afraid to ask if your employer will pay the agreed salary on time. Often people become enthusiastic and put their hands down, but job search is a very responsible and decisive factor in your quality of life. If you know what you’re looking for, don’t underestimate yourself if you haven’t found a job for a year or more. It is advisable to subdivide a job search into phases, after which one stage of the job search should be done, generalizations and conclusions should be made, mistakes should be searched, goals should be reformed and new tasks should be set. Your biggest enemy when looking for a job is frustration or even panic that you can’t find a job, but far from being as bad as you seem, you just need to make some adjustments to your job search and you will succeed.
How do I list my CV education if I’m just a student?
It should be noted that your education is not a graduate degree, be sure to write the name of your educational institution, your specialty and the course you are pursuing. Also write down the year when you will graduate.
Who has to call for results after the first job interview: jobseeker or employer?
Be calm if you have chosen your candidacy will definitely contact you. At the best end of the interview, just ask how you will be informed of the results, will call you or you should call. Notification opportunities via e-mail or other mutually convenient means are becoming increasingly popular. Don’t be afraid to ask, this way you will avoid long internal hesitations to call or wait, or I won’t hurt myself if I call and so on.
