The curriculum vitae, also curriculum vitae (CV or CV), Vitae Cursus or Résumé, lists the most important individual data of a person. It is usually presented in tabular form, but in exceptional cases can also be written in text form. The creation is usually done with a word processor, in some professions a handwritten creation is also common.
The form of the resume varies by country. In some European countries, the resume for an application is relatively short. If a foreign company shows interest, it sends the applicant an application form on which he has to enter his details in detail. Depending on the company, it can be filled in online or on paper.
In no other country, however, is the application photo on a resume weighted as highly as in German-speaking countries. CVs without photos often end up with rejections. The expectations in the quality of the photos are very different. Depending on the profession, passport photos, application photos (as a portrait) or special business photos can be considered. In any case, good quality is important.
In addition to the cover letter, the resume is the central element in your application. HR managers often read it before you actually send it to you. Therefore, it should above all be clear. The tabular form is common today in chronological order.
In general, your entire CV should be complete. Do not miss anything and have the courage to show personal time-outs.
