    The career guide for engineering specialists. Writing a proper CV

    When it comes to job search, the first step is creating a decent resume. This issue deserves some mindful consideration: the CV you send to recruiters is the first impression they get about you as a specialist. Put yourself in shoes of a common recruiter: he\she goes through hundreds profiles every working day and spends only a few seconds assessing if one’s resume matches the basic requirements of a particular vacancy. Therefore, it is worth to take your time composing an abstract that catches the head-hunter’s eye.

    Here is our checklist you can use when composng your resume.


    Make it easy to read. Your CV is a brief and cohesive story about you as a professional. It is important to make it well-structured. Therefore, avoid massive sentences, use subheadings and insert spaces between text sections.

    Be honest with yourself and your potential employers. If you are offered a job, your supervisor will expect a real application of skills and knowledge you claim to possess.

    Be careful with details. When mentioning something think twice if it is really important to include in your resume. It is unreasonable to add information that is not relevant to your professional profile.

    Work experience ? the most significant part of your resume. Former workplaces should be presented in a way so the most recent company you worked for appears the first in sequence. The accent of a proper CV has to be drawn to results that were achieved during the period of one’s employment. Use the following questions to build your work biography.

    What was the official title of your position?
    What were you in charge for at the every stage of your employment?
    Who did you reported to?
    Whom did you supervise (if applicable)?
    Which goals were specifically reached by you?

    When answering these questions, apply figures and objective facts to support your statements. For example, it can be an estimated increase in users, reduce of failures in a system, enhanced characteristics of a product such as speed or resistance etc.

    Educational background matters. This information allows recruiters to make an initial judgment if you have sufficient knowledge to perform a job you apply for. Make sure you that the whole university name, your specialty and years of studying are indicated correctly. It is worth to mention your thesis title, especially if it is closely connected to vacancies you are interested in. If you attended additional courses and training sessions relevant to your speciality, it is beneficial to list them as well.

    Additional information – your extra chance to shine. When composing a CV, keep in mind your main purpose: to get invitation for interviews. Additional information is a great resource to describe facts that can put weights on your side. List computer programms you are fluent with. Focus on your achievements such as publications in solid journals or reports at professional conferences and seminars. Your membership in an acknowledged association would be beneficial to announce as well. Your language skills can play a decisive role if you get selected or not, so include ones you can speak and specify at which level.

    Customise it. If you are considering different jobs (even within one industry), it is advantageous to make several CVs tailored for each position. Accestuate competences which are more relevant to one or another job and describe them in detailes. Importantly, make sure your resumes contain specific keywords linked to desired job functions. These keywords will increase chances of your CV to be found in search results.

    Double check. Read your CV carefully when it is finished. Check spelling and punctuation. A good option is to ask your friend or a relative to go through it as well for correcting possible mistakes. Your literacy tells much not only about your intelligence, it reveals the amount of time you investeded in your application – the crucial sign of your motivation. Verify your contact details. If you don not want to get disturbed in certain hours, better emphasise this in your CV. Assertain your profile picture is made on a neutral background. Take your time to make a professional photo or ask your friend to help you with that. Make sure that your resume is in Word or PDF format and is not archivated.
