Curriculum Vitae

What is a CV? The abbreviation CV stands for Curriculum Vitae. This Latin term literally means “course of (my) life”. In general, CV provides a summary of one applicants’ life, with an emphasis on education, qualifications, and work experience. CV layout A CV is composed of different parts and topics. The structure should be in chronological order (from the most recent to the oldest). What information should a good CV include? Your personal details and contact information A Curriculum Vitae usually begins with personal details such as your name, address, nationality, and contact information including phone number and email address. You can also include your LinkedIn account link to provide even more professional details about you since you are not as limited with space on your LinkedIn profile. Try to avoid irrelevant personal information such as marital status, religious affiliation etc. Work experience A list of your work experience should also be stated in a chronological order. Always include name of the organization's name, the position as well as the month & year you started and stopped working there. Did you have a lot short-term jobs?

Meet Farina

I am Farina, an intern at Triple 3 Group Recruitment. While reading my post, you will probably soon realise, that I am a very special case of a person and not just in recruitment. Whenever someone asks me about myself, it takes a long time to explain my background. This post will make it so much easier! I am a half Russian, half Indian girl, born and partially raised in Kazakhstan. When I was 4 years old, my parents and I moved to Belgium where I have been living for past 16 years.
