The C.V. is the first tool by which the employers evaluate the skills of the
candidates. They provide a summary which includes information on
personal data, education, professional experience, personal abilities and
The C.V.'s main objective is to
attain an interview with the prospective employer. In the process of
searching for a job one is competing with many good candidates, therefore
the C.V. must be attractive enough so the employer will prefer him or her
from other candidates.
The information should be presented
in an orderly consecutive and readable fashion. The information should be
written from the present to the past, marking the years.
Following are the titles that should appear in a C.V.:
Personal data: Name, date of birth, place of birth, date of immigration,
marital status, address, telephone.

listed in a brief fashion, the term of employment, company's name and the
