Curriculum Vitae
Or a resume. It is a current and concise report on what you have done so far. It is your first appearance and allows the reader to build a positive image of you as a candidate. It also allows to make a good impression on the employer. To a large extent, it is what decides whether you are invited to the interview. There are many models of writing a CV, many of them to be found in books or in the Web. The layout may be as follows:


Personal data
Note: Give your full name and address, phone number, e-mail address, and if the employer’s requirements include candidates of a particular age, possible the date of birth.


Professional experience
Note: Use an opposite chronological order. When describing your professional experience, start with the most current information. It is best not to include a long list of any possible experiences gained during your career. Rather, give only those which are most relevant for the employer and the post. Start by giving the time period in which you gained the experience, with month/s and year/s. The word “experience” may cover: earlier employment in a company, post-graduate internship, voluntary work for some company or institution, student internship, social activity in various organisations, political parties, societies, academic research groups, sports clubs, even seasonal fruit-picking work abroad. Indicate the name of the entity and of the department you worked in, then the name of your post. Follow with a general scope of duties. Do not use acronyms when giving names of companies, institutions, universities, etc., as a particular acronym may not be clear for each reader.


Trainings
Note: In that part, indicate the trainings or courses which are confirmed by certificates. If you took part in an uncertified training which, however, would be significant for the employer’s point of view, you may list it, and say during the interview that you have no certificate as such but your practical knowledge can confirm that you had taken the training effectively (if it can). Note down first who conducted the particular course or training (institution or person), what the subject of the course/training was, and the time (in hours, if possible). The courses and trainings show your initiative and willingness to develop, and indicate in what direction you may want to develop.


Skills
Note: Indicate here which skills indicated by the employer as required you actually have, and other ones that may be useful for the given job. Skills include e.g.: knowledge of foreign languages, computer skills, touch-typing, use of office equipment, driving licence, etc. Indicating knowledge of foreign languages, say what language you speak and at what level. It is best to divide the knowledge into three skills: reading, writing, and speaking, and then give your level for each of those. Considering computer skills, write what types of programmes you are able to use, and how advanced is your knowledge. Skills do not cover “soft” abilities (in other  words, our character), such as patience, reliability, creativity, diligence, ability to execute high-risk tasks, and other. Such skills are not popular in CVs anymore, as many candidates gave non-ending lists of their good qualities. You can describe your soft skills in your cover letter, providing real-life professional, academic or private situations to confirm the skills.


Achievements
Note: It is not necessary to list those. If you have any achievements, present them within your CV. It may be e.g.: winning or even participating in secondary school contests, participating in a competition, e.g. for the best Master’s thesis, being elected the best (nicest, etc.) employee in the department, organising a scientific conference, trade fair, increasing sales in a company, launching a new product in the market, implementing a new marketing strategy, obtaining a scholarship, etc. When providing such information, write the time when it took place and specify by whom and for what you were awarded.


Other information
Note: Give such information which may be relevant and important for the employer. It may be a certificate of disability, military status (usually: reserve), unemployed status, etc.


Interests
Note: The interests you give in your CV should correlate with the job you are applying for. List 3-4 interests at the most, rather than give any and all information within the scope of our interest. Do not write too generally, e.g. books, music, film, sport – it is better to give the particular sports discipline you practice.
