What to include in a German CV?
A German CV typically starts with your personal information, followed by your work experience and education.
Your German CV should include the following sections:
1. Personal Information: Include your name, date of birth, address, and contact information, such as email address and contact number.
2. Work Experience: List your most recent positions first, followed by your previous jobs. If you have worked in the same field for many years or have an employment gap, you can list the posts in reverse chronological order. Include the company name, your job title, the dates you worked, and a brief description of your responsibilities.
3. Education: Educational history, degrees you've obtained, schools attended, and the dates, should be included in your CV.
4. Skills: Outline any talents you have for the job you are applying for, such as language skills, IT knowledge, project management expertise, computer skills, or anything else you may find relevant.
In addition to the above sections, it is good to include a part for a short personal summary. This brief one or two-sentence introduction should highlight your essential skills or experience.
