Shall I mention my German "Abitur" (= school degree that allows studying) in my cv?

Shall I write down the grades of all my degrees (2masters, 2 bachelors) in my cv? (They are better than average, but not 10% of the best)

Hi,

I think it depends on the degree of seniority/experience that you have and on the country where the company that you are applying for is based.

In Germany (where it seems that you are based) I would include them. For other countries I think I would still include them with a couple of additional words explaining whtat the degrees mean in anglo-saxon countries like UK and US.

I wouldn't pay much attention to the grades for the time being.

Good luck!

As long as most of the grades "look good" visually (1.x), I would include them in the CV. If not, then don't include them in the CV.

Cheers, Sidi
