Appearance & Classification

– It would be better to put your profession information (your title) right under your name.

– Your CV looks more like an “article” as there are long sentences with very narrow line spacing. Consider that a CV should normally contain two pages at most. However if we assume that your profession requires such a CV, I can tell you that may not be changed. Tough, to make it clearer for reading you can use shorter sentences.

I suggest you to state your birth date in the personal information, assuming that it may be important for the employers.

– It is a well prepared, neat CV. You reveal yourself by using a very correct ordering of information. In that respect, it wouldn’t be unfair to say that you’ve prepared a CV that can set an example for the ones in your sector.


No grammar mistakes.

We cannot be sure that we identify all the points that can better your CV, however if you benefit from this free service of ours, please share it with your friends.
