» The mold

A CV should be no longer than two pages, because each application will be mostly dedicated to the pre-selection only a few minutes. The most important thing must therefore stand out when flying.

To achieve this, it is important that the resume is well structured and well formatted. In principle, applicants should avoid using a color other than black. A typeface Times New Roman or Arial should be used. Other fonts can quickly contribute to a dubious impression.

» The photo

An important contribution to the first impression also provides the application photo. It should be placed at the top right corner of the first page of your CV in most cases. Should the resume be accompanied by a cover sheet, place it should find the photo. Important here is that the photo is approximately the size of your photo. Too small photo would be difficult to recognize for the viewer, too big is too strong appearances in the foreground and draws heavily on the actual qualifications from.

In the photo Applicants should have a friendly, yet confident impression. Private recordings should generally not be used. Who wants to have a professional resume, a photo from a professional photo studio should use.

This has the simple reason that more recent information about yourself in general are much more relevant than events that are long back. It should be listed on the left and right of the period the station.

You can do that, for example, by starring them you more stations that are for a specific funding institution of particular relevance. You can also perform precise sub-points to explain this station. In any case, you should formulate a foundation for each new resume and simply send in any case, the application documents copied to several!
