CV WRITING GUIDELINES

We appreciate the individuality of candidate’s application and there are many ways of writing a good CV. These guidelines are general recommendations only but some important data missing in your CV may cause delays in processing your application and unnecessary work on our side. Below we have listed some major parts of a typical CV with some our comments and hints.
Preferred format is Word, RTF or PDF and your application should be in English for most of the jobs we offer concern global companies. If you insist on including your photo please make sure it is well compressed, the same rule applies to all attached or included scanned documents. Please note that we do not require scanned copies of your diplomas or certificates at this stage of the recruitment process.
Please note that after we received your application it will be seen by a human being very soon, usually the same day. You will also receive automatic confirmation that your CV made it to us and within one or two days you will be asked to provide some additional information either using online entry form or by email.
We accept the applications only by means of email but preferred option is our Entry Form, when using email it is a good practice to use either the Subject line suggested by us (when you click on the email contact) or have some text in the subject line indicating the purpose of the email.
It is also a good practice to have few lines of introductory text in the message body and a signature block. Your application may be accompanied by a cover letter which should have a reference to the position you apply for and highlight your achievements. However, in our opinion one document is sufficient at this moment, submitting more documents has no influence on the outcome of your application.

TYPICAL CV BUILDING BLOCKS
