Bonus tip – Make sure your CV will make you shine
When you read that the CV template can make all the difference, you should believe it. Having the right CV template is something that might take you some time, but in the end, might get you the job. Why? Every market is different from each other, so what works in your home country, may not work in the country that you are applying to. At the same time, corporate companies and startups also require different levels of information. So why not give it a try and learn what CV template is the right one for the job you’re applying to?
By default, in Europe, if you use a Europass CV template, you will be ok, it’s like wearing a white shirt and a blazer at an interview. But if you put a little bit more effort into it, you might easily understand what exactly the company is looking for. Do you have to make a new template every time you apply for a job? No. At Sprint CV, you can convert your LinkedIn or CV to one of the many available templates in a matter of seconds. Want to give it a try?
