Get your resume together

Hamakita A curriculum vitae or resume is your presentation tool. It should be clear, compelling, and of interest to those who read it. The information you include is key to revealing your skills, experience, qualities and interests and helps build my resume. You need to include the necessary sections to assemble it.

Personal Information:

  • First and last name.
  • Document number.
  • Date of birth.
  • Citizenship status.
  • Nationality.
  • Contact information: address, phone and email.
  • You can also add a photo, but it is not required.

Employment history

Ariel If you are looking for your first job, keep in mind when filling out this section of your resume:

  • Apprenticeships, fellowships, or other forms of work-study programs.
  • Paid internships.
  • Volunteer work in a neighborhood, parish, club, or other institution.
  • Collaborating in stores or working for relatives, acquaintances or neighbors.

If you have work experience, list your previous jobs. It is important that you list each job:

  • The name and title of the company or employer.
  • Position held.
  • Year of entry and exit.
  • Brief evaluation of tasks performed.
  • Academic background.

Mention your academic background, both current and completed. Be sure to include the following information:

  • Degree earned or study in progress.
  • Name of school.
  • Year of graduation or final year of study.
  • Additional training.

You may also refer to other courses taken, regardless of academic background, that may be of interest to your position. Detail:

Languages / Computers

In these two sections, you simply need to indicate the language or program you are using and the level of proficiency (basic, intermediate, or advanced).

Personal Interests

This section is optional and serves to indicate personal interests and recreational activities.

In a position where good physical fitness is required, it may be helpful to explain, for example, that you play a sport. But it makes no sense to report that you like video games or listen to music.
