Consejos sobre como escribir un buen Curriculum Vitae

 

¿Qué es un CV?

CV – curriculum vitae- or resume, es probablemente el documento más importante para ser introducido en un proceso de selección.
De la calidad de este documento dependerá en gran parte que obtengas el trabajo, así que prepara uno bueno!

Tienes que pensar en el currículo como algo para venderte a tí mismo, pues en cierto modo lo que debes de hacer es convencer al seleccionador o miembro de RRHH de que estás totalmente preparado para el puesto ofertado, mostrando clara y limpiamente tu educación, experiencia laboral e información personal.

Una buena fotografía, incluso profesional (pero formal, nada de books de modelos) es siempre bienvenida, sobre todo en trabajos de cara al público.

 

Contenido de un currículum vitae

Un CV -en inglés- debe tener los siguientes apartados:

  • PERSONAL DETAILS

Contains your personal information, such as full name, date of birth, nationality, and contact details. Usually in the first parts of the resume.

  • EDUCATION

Lists  post-secondary degrees; details include name of the university, dates studied, name of the degree or major subjects. Also shorter courses can be listed here. If you have some certificates (e.g from language schools or computer courses), this is a good place to show the off.

  • WORK HISTORY

A chronological list of your work history. Only related jobs should be posted – do not list all the different short temporary and summer jobs you have had in the past. You can mention related internships, placements and voluntary jobs you have had.

  • SKILLS

This part shows all your skills that can be useful in the desired position– display your language skills, computer skills and programs you can use, interpersonal skills and skills related to the position you´re applying for.

The following chapters aren´t absolutely necessary, but you should consider if they would be beneficial for your CV.

  • REFERENCES

References from reliable, recognized sources can greatly increase your CV´s authority. Use references from fields related to the position you´re applying for, eg. If that´s a technical job, use references from your former workplace´s technically qualified manager or expert, who knows and can answer questions about your line of work. For recently graduated students, you can use references from your former lecturers.

Remember, that the more well known the person or company giving the references is, the better it is for you.

  • OBJECTIVE

You can state your career –related objective here. Not absolutely necessary though.

  • INTERESTS

Depending on the type of job you´re after, you can consider having a couple of lines about your interests, hobbies, etc. Remember not to go overboard with the details here – this is part should be like a side dish, not the main course

Menos es más – Incluye información relevante

Piensa a quién le estas enviando la aplicación y que tipo de información considerarían relevante. Tener muchas páginas irrelevantes de todo aquello que has hecho en tu vida, no sirve para nada.
El máximo tamaño de un CV debería ser de 2 páginas.

Máxima recomendación, usa el formato europass!
