Smart Life Skills

A CV is more than a document outlining an individual’s experience and qualifications; it is a personal marketing tool that varies in style, format, and content across different cultures. This section explores the global variations and nuances in CV preparation.

Structure and Format: While a one-page resume is common in the United States, other countries such as the UK or Germany may expect a more detailed two-page CV. In some Asian countries, including personal information like a photograph or marital status is standard, which would be unusual in the US or Canada.

Content and Language: Language proficiency is a key component of a CV, especially for non-native English-speaking countries. It’s essential to highlight language skills and certifications. The way achievements and experiences are described can also differ, with some cultures preferring modest language and others expecting more assertive self-promotion.
