Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is well!

Since I will be applying for a job after my graduation soon, it would be good to have a CV screening from some more experienced people and how I can maybe compensate weak points in my CV (I already network a lot, to compensate a little and get referrals).

Ongoing Challenges:

Grades/Extra curricular:
- How do I take the view off my GPA and into my strong fields (e.g. volunteering and language)

Professional:
- How do I sell my work experience better?
- How can I sell that I was the first working student ever in the company where I worked to be allowed to do client pitches (also won those) and work at the client side?

I got rejected from some companies in the CV screening part already (partially due to COVID-19), invited to an interview by some others and already passed the first round at some of these. For the companies who rejected me in the screening process (sometimes even with recommendation), I asked for feedback and implemented this into my CV.

I hope this helps for a quick overview and I would be happy if someone could help me improve my CV to perfection.

Best wishes!

Hi,

This is very hard to read/process. Can you send it through?

Also, this actually demonstrated a very important theme in writing a CV/Resume/Cover Letter: Visuals

Just as important as one's experience is content + layout. Key words need to pop (skills, responsibilities, languages, locations, firms, etc.). Without that, you can have the best, most comprehensive list of experiences, and still not get an interview.

Dear Tobias,

It's dificult to give an abstract recommendations, because it works more efficiently when you see actually the thing. So feel free to send me you CV and we can discuss it.

Best,
André
