Tips and Tricks

Here are a few tips & tricks from our recruiters to showcase your talent, your personality and your passion:

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A CV
Your resume should focus on your most recent experiences and highlight the elements that make you the ideal candidate for the role. A classic resume outlining your work history is always popular among recruiters.
  • Keep it short: ideally 2 pages
  • Make key information stand out: customized CVs are interesting but keep in mind the information should be readily identifiable by recruiters who review hundreds of profiles
  • Pay attention to details: avoid typos, incorrect phone numbers, overlapping dates, etc.
  • Describe quantifiable accomplishments on your projects
  • Use action verbs
  • Highlight your academic and continuous education, professional affiliations, technical and language skills
  • Simplify your presentation and avoid logos
  • Include your community involvement and explain how these projects fit into your career progression
  • Use an email address in good taste
  • Avoid using special characters, bullets, and columns for your formatting. They may change when the recruiter opens your document
  • Do not include pictures or special effects
In short: Your resume is an opportunity to make a good first impression and draw our attention.
