Get Your CV German Style To Get A Job

04 Feb 2013

It’s important to get your CV drafted as per German standards before sending out to German labour market. If your information is as per German employer’s expectation, it will be much easier for them to process and decide at a glance.

"It's really important to know what you're doing when writing your German CV. It will get thrown out if you don't do it in the style which Germans are used to,"

CV should be in one or two pages in a formal, fact sheet format

“The Lebenslauf is a datasheet, a fact sheet,” “The cover letter is a briefing – where you show how you're right for the job. Both texts are best when they are factual, sober list free of egotistical statements.”

German CVs are written in a two-columned table. Include the below headings in your CV on the left column:

  • Personal Details
  • Professional Experience
  • Education and Training
  • Voluntary Work
  • Scholarships
  • Computer and Language Skills

A few must-have personal details that should be included: A photo, your marital status and place of birth. Also make sure you mention your language and computer skills in detail.

"German employers are used to seeing a photo on a resume, they can't explicitly demand in the job advert that you put one because that goes against privacy laws,"

"But they'll be looking for it so always put one. A photo allows potential employers to make a different kind of personal connection with someone and will help them connect your skills with your face when you come to an interview."

 “If you can do it in German, make the effort, it doesn't have to be word-perfect,”

 “If an applicant has no or only a little German but has written their CV in German it would give the impression they had better language skills than they actually had, which could lead to problems,”

“Personally, if English was my first language I'd write applications in Germany in English – unless I had to prove excellent German language skills for the job,”
