Resumes & CV Letter Writing for International Jobs
Preparing an International Resume
Regardless of where you are in the career search, an incoming freshman or a graduating senior, you should prepare your resume immediately for possible employment. Even if you don't think you have anything important, still start to put a resume together. These are literally organic documents that you will continue to add to and edit the resume throughout your college career and beyond. The Advantage: you will always have a resume "ready", and you are less likely to forget or omit relevant experience or positions.
Once you've decided it's time to search for an overseas job position, what should you do? Well, it's time to make your resume, also known as your curriculum vitae, standout. By common practice outside the US, the term curriculum vitae, or "cv", is used instead of resume.
