Hi people! 🙂
At the beginning I didn’t intend to write separate post about the CV, but when I realized, that there are so many details and tips I would share, I quickly made up my mind. Your CV is one of the most important thing during your whole application, so make sure it is as perfect as possible. The recruiter has less than a minute to have a look at your CV and your photo, so you have to make it remarkable and clear.
Your CV should be:
– Maximum 1-2 pages long
– Only with relevant information (no one cares you have driving license or you completed a language/scuba diving course)
– There is not too much to read, you do not need to write in sentences
– Colorful (always have 1-2 extra copies with you!)
This is a part of my CV. I had five sections all together:
– Basic information
– Social activity
– Work experience
It should contain only your most relevant details. These are should be your full name, your mobile phone number, your e-mail address and your date of birth. Your address in simply not relevant, the recruiter has nothing to do with this information.
In the beginning I did not write my date of birth down, because I have heard everywhere, that this is something which is not important. When I was in Bratislava on the assessment day in June and I submitted my CV, the recruiter asked me about my date of birth and when I answered, she wrote it down on my CV. For any reasons, it was important for her to know. This is why I would suggest you to put it into your resume, because the same could happen to anyone.
Nationality is another thing which you do not need to detail. If you write your mother tongue down, the recruiter will have a clue about your nationality.
I put my volunteering experience on the top, because I think this is the most important detail about me and I wanted to make sure, that the recruiter was going to notice it. This is something you need to be proud of, so that’s why it should be on the top :).
I also detailed four of my work experiences, all customer service or child care. 3-4 thoughts for each is enough, as you can see below. Do not write more than this, because the recruiter is not going to read it due to the lack of time. Focus only on your customer service or manager experiences, or something which gave you useful skills for cabin crew job.
One thing I would highlight: In the education section I also emphasized my results like this: 94% final result or 80% final result. If you really had good results during your studies, this is something you need to highlight, because it can be a big advantage.
Hungarian: mother tongue
That’s it, very simple. You don’t need further details like “fluent in reading, fluent in speaking, fluent in listening” etc. This information is obvious. Having language exam is also something which is not that important. They wanna know your REAL language knowledge, having a piece of paper about any certifications doesn’t provide anything.
Here we are guys, I hope you found this post useful and easy to follow :). If you have any additional question, feel free to ask!
