How to write your resume?

The information you display in your resume has to be clear, concise and logical. Make sure it contains no mistakes that might confuse the reader. People in charge of selection do not spend more than 10 seconds scanning your resume to see if they will read it or not. They take about 30 seconds for reading it in order to make a decision on inviting you or not to an interview. DO NOT FORGET THIS! For each position, they may receive more applications than you think!

Before writing and sending your resume you must ask yourself a few questions. Write the answers down and later there will be time to shape the resume. 
  • What do I think the company and/or the selector are looking for? 
  • What abilities are required in somebody to develop and carry out the traineeship?
  • What achievements have I carried out that can help me to do well in my traineeship?
  • Do I have the correct preparation? Have I updated my knowledge?
  • Which languages do I speak?
  • Do I have other life experiences that have helped me to develop skills and capacities to solve problems? 
  • What type of position is ideal for me? Do I like to work alone or in a team? Am I creative or do I prefer to be directed in a project?
  • What did I like about my previous traineeship? What aspects or functions would I rather skip this time?
  • What have I learned so far and what abilities have I used, for example courses, part time jobs that matter?
Organize the answers in blocks, like this: 
  • What is my objective? What level am I looking for?
  • Summary of abilities, acquired skills and knowledge.
  • Experience. ( other traineeships and or jobs)
  • Studies/training.
  • Use of computer programs/Internet.
  • Languages.
  • Points of interest that I want to emphasize: things I like, interests, voluntary work. 
When you write the CV or resume you must present what you want to communicate through your resume: the information the resume contains is relevant. It is only necessary to reflect your interests and hobbies if they are relevant to the position to which you are applying; for example, if you like to read, and the position is in mass media, or for example you like sports and you decide on a position in a sports company. If you are a volunteer and help people, yet you choose a sales position, it is possible that the selector might think that you are not going to meet the hard and competitive nature of a commercial position where people often come second after sales and targets.
