What Should Be Considered While Preparing a CV in English?

 

It is known that knowing a foreign language provides a significant advantage in business and social life. English, accepted as a universal language, is one of the most sought-after foreign languages ​​in the business world. However, people who develop themselves by learning several languages ​​are in an advantageous position in their career life.

Today, domestic and foreign companies ask candidates for CVs in English for job applications. Because employers can indirectly understand their level of knowledge in English, as well as measure the suitability of candidates applying with a CV in English to the relevant job posting.

Do you wonder how to prepare an English CV professionally? Using the information, we will provide in the following topics, you can easily create a remarkable CV and stand out from other candidates.

 

Create an Organized Structure

 

Dividing your English CV into sections will allow you to create an organized structure. A CV with a regular structure is easier to read. It also ensures that the qualifications sought by the employer are clearly visible in the CV. Therefore, when choosing a CV template, you should consider this information.

The primary purpose of dividing the CV into sections is to try to get the employer to have an idea about you within 5-10 seconds. For this reason, including your name, surname, and contact information in the first part of your CV will be the right step to start.

In other sections, you can talk about your career goals, describe your talents, and summarize your work experience and education life. In addition, if you have participated in student exchange programs, it is recommended that you include this detail in your education life.

After creating a few sections, you can talk about your work and education life in chronological order and write your references in the last section of your CV. Another critical aspect of creating a neat CV is paying attention to margins, font, and size when creating a page layout.

 

Use Keywords in Your CV

 

Keywords are the names given to the most searched words by users on the internet. These words are used on websites to attract user traffic. Employers use a filtering method, paying attention to the keywords in your CV.

With the advancement of technology, many companies read the CVs of applicants with artificial intelligence. Keywords expressing the qualities and features sought by the employer were coded into artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence carries out the pre-selection process by focusing on CV keywords. The CVs of the candidates who successfully complete the process are checked visually. For this reason, when creating your English CV, you should use the keywords related to the position and department you want to apply for.

 

Edit a One-Page CV

 

A very high number of applications are made to job positions opened in a certain quota. While this situation brings fierce competition among candidates, it also increases human resources burdens. Furthermore, considering that most companies will finalize the recruitment process on a predetermined date, it is known that the time allocated for reviewing each CV is limited to seconds.

Creating a CV with short and understated sentences is enough to attract the attention of the personnel who are interested in hundreds of candidates' CVs. For these reasons, it is recommended that you build your English CV on a simple structure and create it on a single page.

 

Customize Your English CV According to the Job Posting

 

The vision and mission of many companies in the same sector differ. When the subject is considered in this context, the qualifications sought in applicants vary. It will be the right decision to update your English CV to adapt to the variables in the companies you apply for.

However, it is also important in which country the job application you want to make is located. For example, if you are applying for a job posting published in our country, you need to add your driver's license, military status, and marital status information. However, it is up to you to include this information if you are applying to work abroad.

For these reasons, customizing your English CV according to the relevant job posting is an important step that you should not skip.

 

Avoid Grammar and Spelling Errors

 

The sentence structure, grammar, writing, and reading rules in English are quite different from the Turkish language. Therefore, a minor grammatical or spelling mistake that may be found on your CV will be a negative score for you.

For these reasons, it is recommended that you check your English CV several times after preparing it and have it checked by a person you trust with English language skills.

 

Finally

 

It would be best if you did meticulous work while creating your CV. If you pay attention to our underlined points, you can easily prepare a regular CV. The traditional structure will enable you to stand out among the job postings that many candidates apply for.

For these reasons, it will be the right strategy to aim to appeal to the eye, create short sections, prepare straightforward content with the help of keywords and customize your CV when creating in English.
