Hi Veronika

Essentially it's OK. However a potential employer looks at hundreds of these and you need to make yours stand out.

Take lots of time over the layout.
Have a long version (max 2 pages) & short version (1 Page) ready and up to date all the time.....just in case that job you really fancy has a short deadline.
Review all the time.....
and probably my top tip is to give a 1 paragraph 'profile' statement that sells you. If it's good (and it should be placed after your basic details) then the reader will want to know more, if it's bad (or missing) your CV will probably be discarded!

Good luck with your search......


PS your English is excellent.
Hi Mark-- welcome to English Forums. Thanks for helping out, and we hope to see more of you around here.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi there

I recommand you to re-write your educationnal and training, and experience paragraphs by stating first the most recent date instead of writing first your oldest date ( Imean by that, state first your university between sept 2001 and sept 2004, then sept 1997 feb 2000, ..., and last secondary school 1985.1992). When reading your resume, the employer finds first your most recent qualifications and experiences.
the rest is good, but why not adding a paragraph for your interests, it could be the place to write something about you that would make you stand out of the pile of resumes the employer may have to consider??
Good luck!
Thank you for having a look at my CV.
I thought about stating the most recent dates first, but I was not sure. It's not usual in Germany, but as I apply for european studies I will change it.
I also thought about what I can write for my interests. But there is nothing special (no much time besides working). The truth is: family and friends. But I don't think this makes me more interesting. So I left the passage out.
Thanks, Veronika
you have never been part of a sport team, music group, or volunteer organization??..I think, if so, that you can mention it..
