1 Structuring a CV

1.1 Before starting

Your CV has to be tailored to meet the specific requirements and interests of the institution (be that a university or a company) you are applying to. The first thing to do is therefore to get in touch with the Careers Advice Office of your university, so that you can use their advice and expertise to produce the best possible CV.

Since standardized documents make the processing of applications faster, some universities might ask you to fill in an application form. Normally you should still submit a CV.
