Let your CV become the anchor of your application
Your CV (in some countries also referred to as résumé) is the central element of your application and particularly important at the beginning of the application process.
Of course, you also need a good cover letter, but I believe that its importance has declined in recent years. A great CV with a boring cover letter still gives you a good chance of being asked for an interview. On the other hand, a great cover letter can rarely save a mediocre CV. It’s important to keep that in mind in order to allocate your time resources right.
When creating your personal document, you should pay attention to the following aspects:
- Understand the only goal of your CV
- Gain interest through your previous achievements
- Structure your CV with appropriate categories
- Dispense attachments with care (available in my email course)
- Write target group versions economically
