Do you need a job? Are you looking for a new professional challenge in a Spanish speaking country or company? Then it is time for you to start working on your CV in Spanish!
In this post we will give you some tips on how to write it and how to make sure you include everything you need. Here are some important rules that will help you create a strong, concise and well-structured resume:
- Be brief, succinct and direct. Your resume shouldn’t have more than two pages, maximum. Remember that companies receive lots of resumes every day!
- Make sure that you use a clear font and that you use spaces that will make it easier to read.
- One thing is to have a well-designed resume, but don’t use too many colors and make it look like a paint by numbers. Keep it professional and clean.
- Remember to be consistent; if some of your titles are in Italics or something is in bold, make sure all of them are!
- Avoid grammar or spelling mistakes.
- Don’t attach any documents or certificates, unless they specifically ask for them.
So, what should you include in your Spanish resume? Let’s review some important vocabulary:
- Datos Personales (Personal details): Here you will put information such as your name, contact number, email address, etc.
- Experiencia Profesional (Work Experience): In this section of your CV, you will detail the different jobs you’ve had and what you did there. Make sure the most recent one is on top.
- Competencias Digitales (Computer Skills): Do you know how to use Photoshop? InDesign? Adobe? Here’s where you get to show off your “Competencias Digitales”.
- Formación Académica (Education): Where did you go to school? From which university did you graduate? Make sure to include all the information you need in this section.
- Idiomas (Language Skills) Languages are incredibly useful when it comes to searching for a job. Make sure you specify the level of each language you decide to add to the list.
- Otros datos de interés (Other information): Is there anything else you’d like to add? Write it in this section.
- Referencias (References): Lots of companies ask for someone to contact to get to know you better. Make sure you add this section to your resume.
