Resumes

Post#1 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 1:41 am

Hey all

Just in the process of updating my CV / Resume. Has anyone out there got a super-stylish CV template (you know, the kind that impresses). Also any suggestions?

Cheers,

Hawk

No idea if mine is particularly good but it seems to have got me jobs. A bit lengthy at 7 pages, but you are welcome to a look. Where do I send it.

I'm not sure if it really applies to your job market, but for what it's worth:

My uncle is ultimately responsible for the hiring for Lotto for one of Germany's states and he has studied Psychology.

He was usually 100 % focused on the cover letter, which he said would be looked at for a maximum of three minutes, and in those three minutes, it had to explain to the reader what huge advantages they would have from hiring you.

The Resume itself is just a formality here in Germany, where you use a maximum of two pages to give a rundown of your education, professional career and skills.
Wirklich reich ist, wer mehr | Truly rich is, who holds
Träume in seiner Seele hat, | more dreams in his soul
als die Realität zerstören kann.| than reality can destroy.

Keep it short like Rimstalker said. 3 pages or less.
Anything more and it gets a struggle to find the info you are looking for. I have a few interviews to do in July/Aug. and I hope all the applicants keep it short :?

Yeah dude - been working working here for the same company for three and a half years. The boss said that once I made instructor they would help me out with my supervision. Well I made instructor, but no help was forthcoming. The industry is too small to kick up a stink about it, so I'm leaving them to it :D
