How to write a CV and cover letter

Your CV is your professional calling card: it should be well-structured and concise. Submitting a version which specifically emphasizes information essential to the position you are applying for is always a good idea. Be as truthful as possible – and avoid spelling mistakes. The overall look of your CV also matters, try to stand out in the crowd.

Your cover letter should clearly indicate why you seek a particular position and highlight the qualifications and competences which make you a suitable candidate.
