This time it is the CV (Curriculum Vitae) that is concerned: applying for a job starts with a well-written one, and this is mainly the American-style ‘CV’, i.e. resume. It should be kept in mind that HR people have no more than a minute or two to read through it. Therefore we have to set up a temporary objective of what we want to achieve with our resume and highlight the corresponding skills, achievements and qualifications only – certainly accompanied by one or two well-formed sentences to support them.
