Conseils pour rédiger un CV

Le Curriculum Vitae

Le CV comporte quelques spécificités.

Sur la forme : il est conseillé de se limiter à deux pages, format A4 et d’indiquer au haut de la page votre nom, votre adresse et votre numéro de téléphone.

Vous pouvez commencer par une courte introduction appelée "Objective" ou "Personal Profile" et rédigée à la première personne (4 lignes maximum), qui présente votre expérience, ainsi que le poste ou la fonction que vous recherchez.

Si vos premières expériences professionnelles vous ont déjà apporté une certaine compétence, il est préférable de commencer par la rubrique "Employment" ou "Career History" ou bien encore "Experience". Mentionnez d’abord votre expérience la plus récente. Il est très important d’insister sur les tâches précises que vous avez effectuées.

Evitez les vides chronologiques.

Vient ensuite la rubrique "Education and Qualification" dans laquelle doit figurer votre formation scolaire ou universitaire. Si elle est très spécifique et qu’une équivalence semble difficile à établir, expliquez concrètement en quoi elle a consisté.

Pour connaitre les équivalences entre diplômes français et anglais, adressez-vous au :

British Council - France9 rue de Constantine 75007 Paris Tél. 0033 (0)1 49 55 73 00 information@britishcouncil.fr

ou bien au :UK Naric, Ecctis 2000 Ltd, Oriel House, Oriel Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50 1XP - Tél. 00 44 (0)1242 260 010naric@ecctis2000.co.uk

Les compétences informatiques et linguistiques apparaissent sous la rubrique "Languages and Other skills" : pratique et maîtrise de logiciels et d’autres langues étrangères.

Précisez votre niveau. La rubrique "Additional information" ou "Interests" peut accrocher un employeur potentiel si les loisirs sont originaux ou liés au poste recherché. Mettez en avant les activités associatives que vous avez menées.

Enfin, il est important d’ajouter les coordonnées de deux personnes qui pourront vous recommander sous la rubrique "References" ou "Referees".
Si vous ne souhaitez pas mettre les noms sur votre CV, veuillez ajouter une phrase indiquant qu’ils sont disponibles sur demande "References available on request".
