Резюме на английском языке

  1. Английский в резюме должен быть безупречен.
    Даже если Вы считаете, что знаете английский в достаточной степени, все равно дайте прочитать Ваше резюме еще кому-нибудь с отличным знанием английского языка. Помните - плохой английский в резюме уменьшает Ваши шансы до бесконечно малой величины.
  2. Составляющие резюме.
    Как правило, резюме состоит из следующих секций - Personal Information (Личные данные), Qualifications Summary (квалификация), Education, Professional Certifications (профессиональные достижения и сертификаты, если есть), Work Experience (опыт работы), IT Skills (навыки работы с ПК), Language Skills (владение иностранными языками).

Ниже, приведены подробные инструкции по написанию резюме, сопроводительного письма и по прохождению интервью на английском языке.


Anyone who wants to find a job, as a rule, undertakes the definite, well-known steps. First, it’s a search of a vacancy either in the classified advertisements or in Internet. When a suitable vacancy is found, you write a CV and a cover letter, and mail or e-mail the letter with enclosed CV to the advertising employer. Then you wait for an answer. The positive answer is usually an arrangement for an interview. At the interview the employer should decide whether you are suitable for the position. Later they deliver a decision to you or call to inform that you are admitted. If you failed, start the process from the beginning again.

Creating a CV

The purpose of your CV is not to get you the job. Its purpose is to get you an interview, and after your meeting to remind the person you met about you.

General Principles

Target Your CV.
Different companies will be looking for different information. But don’t write an all-purpose CV for everyone - it may not work. Study the requirements and find information about the company you’re applying.
Think carefully about the difference between a CV and a covering letter. Your CV is about facts, which should speak for themselves and should not include much text.

What you do

  1. Keep your CV to 1-2 pages in length.
  2. Make your CV easy to read. Your prospective employer should know exactly where to look for what.
  3. Use positive language and adopt a confident tone.
  4. Ensure that the first page contains enough personal details for a potential employer to contact you easily.
  5. Make the chronology of education and experiences clear by keeping dates (months and years) down the left or right side of the page. Highlight more recent experiences and education by arranging lists in reverse order (most recent first).
  6. Headline key skills relevant to the job. Ensure that bullet points and headings provide reasonable detail and do not read simply as a checklist.
  7. Leave out information that is irrelevant or negative.
  8. Put more relevant information that demonstrates your suitability for the role near the beginning of the CV.
  9. When drafting your career history try to give an impression of your role, status and achievements. If possible give examples of interesting and relevant matters which demonstrate your skills.
  10. Ask someone else to read your CV and find out his or her impressions. This is essential in revealing embarrassing typing errors.

What you don't do

  1. Don’t attach a photograph to your CV. You're applying for a job as a specialist, not joining a dating agency. But you must have it.
  2. Don’t lie. This can lead to instant dismissal if discovered. Employers sometimes carry out an auditing exercise where this can be unearthed. Also be aware that past employers may reveal a different picture if contacted.
  3. Don’t joke. Not everyone will share your sense of humour.
  4. Don’t write your whole life story. Positions of responsibility at junior school are rarely of interest and give the impression of doing little since.
  5. Don’t leave unexplained gaps in your career history as it gives the employer the feeling you are trying to hide something. State whether travelling, taking a career break etc.
  6. Don’t write banal profile/objective sections. Statements such as 'highly motivated team player' can be better demonstrated through examples in the body of your CV.
  7. Don’t list your interests unless they are current. Think carefully about the impression they will give the reader. Very special interests may raise questions about your ability to integrate and not everyone will share religious/moral/social concerns. Only state those interests that you can talk fluently about and demonstrate positive skills that the company may be looking for. If you know that the company represents travel agents, or pop stars, or IT companies, then it's worth stressing those interests if you genuinely have them.

Guidelines For a Typical CV

A 1-2 page CV typically has the following sections (and traditionally follow this order):

  1. Name / surname and Contact details
  2. Summary or Profile
  3. Education and qualification
  4. Work experience
  5. Other experiences: IT skills / Language Skills / Interests (optional)

1. Name Surname / Contact Details

At the top of the first page should be your Contact Details. For visual impact, the text should be centred. It's not necessary to give the document a heading i.e. 'Curriculum Vitae'. Instead, your name should be the heading. Type it using a larger type size e.g. 22pt and in bold type.
To save space, write your address on the line below your name, not as if you were addressing an envelope - but as a string of text with commas separating your house name/number, street name, town and post code with commas.
Type in your contact telephone numbers. An e-mail address (if you have one) should also be recorded in this section.


12 Any Street
Anywhere ANI lNA
Telephone: XX0 XX XX
e-mail: any@smth.xx

2. Summary / Profile

After the name heading qualified professionals may write a short profile summary in order to highlight the scope of areas they’re specializing in and the major skills and abilities they posess.

Corporate lawyer with 6 years experience as corporation house counsel and 2 years in law company practice. Areas of expertise include financing, re-financing, tax counseling, contract drafting and negotiations, investment projects, issuing share and securities, financial planning, AGM (annual general meetings), annual reports.

3. Education and Qualifications

This section should include all professional memberships as well as your general academic skills. If you're currently studying for an additional qualification, this should also be included (at the top of the list) with an anticipated result. Lay it out in reverse chronological order, most recent first. Ensure that you include: the name of the establishment and the dates you attended the institution.

1995 - 1998

Juris Doctor
University City, Law School, City

1993 – 1994

Colledge Name,
Finance course

1990 – 1993

Bachelor’s degree,
University Name

4. Work Experience / Career History

Starting with your current or most recent job first, compile the following information:
Dates: The dates should be placed vertically in either the left-hand or right-hand margin.
Organisation and location (city or town name only): Underneath the organisation's name, give a brief narrative about the core business this allows the reader to quickly make comparisons about the size and complexity of the organisation, complexity of challenges, etc.
Job title: Underneath the job title, construct a 'function' statement, i.e. what you were employed to do. Be selective in what you write here: mention the principal tasks and responsibilities of your role, to include those things you enjoy and are good at doing. It might be best to omit other things you do but don't enjoy so much, unless they are crucial parts of the job you're targeting. The function statement should be no longer than 4-5 lines in length.
Achievements:. Each achievement statement should include: whether you worked independently or as part of a team, what you did, and the result of your actions (this can be quantitative and/or qualitative). Achievements should be written in the form of short, punchy, bullet-point statements of fact. They are designed to arouse the reader's interest and generate questions like how? What? Why? etc. so that the decision-maker will shortlist you to obtain the answers. There's no need to provide salary details or reasons for leaving on your CV.


XXX & XX , LLP, partner
PRACTICE AREA group leader; responsibilities include ………………..
Achievements: has managed ……… has been performing …………….
Provide ……… participate in ………

1998 – 2004

House counsel lawyer in a group of X lawyers, ………………….

5. IT Skills

Try to give an impression of your familiarity with computers. List any software packages that you are familiar with using that would be relevant to the job e.g. word-processing or spreadsheet software and your level of proficiency (beginner, intermediate or expert). All companies nowadays want to see that their potential trainees have some experience in tools used for information research e.g. CD-ROM's and primarily the Internet.


MS Office Programmes - advanced level
Word - intermediate level
Internet - advanced level
WestLaw and Butterworths consistent user

6. Language Skills


English – fluently (reading, translation, communication skills).
German – intermediate.

7. Interests and Activities

Companies are also looking for evidence of your team working and social skills in an extra-curricula capacity. Therefore mentioning your involvement in sporting teams and other organizations can highlight positions of responsibility you have held and your outgoing nature. However, you should be careful not to give irrelevant activities/interests that don't demonstrate any skills to the company e.g. reading, or listening to music. As in all of these sections be laconic and relevant.


Sports: Roller-skating, Volleyball.
Keen on plastic arts

Instead of above two columns there may be a column Other experiences where you inform about your knowledge of foreign languages, IT or other skills and interests.

Languages Conversational French
Computers Word; WordPerfect; FrontPage 2000
Interests Humorous poetry, politics, travel, chess, reading, sports


Before you submit your CV to any employer you need to contact potential referees to obtain their agreement to act as referees. It is not conventional to reveal the identities of your referees on the CV. Some employers will request such information prior to an interview, in which case you provide the names and contact details in your covering letter. Other employers will wait until they have met you and decided on whether they want to take matters further.
You are responsible for referee management. That means, when a potential employer or recruiter asks you for your referees, this is the cue for you to also contact them. Explain to each referee the nature of the role you are applying for. Detail the skills the employer is interested in. This will enable the referee to have a relevant, constructive conversation with the employer/recruiter.
No example seems possible here.

Cover letter

Before Putting Pen to Paper

Read the companies literature or information. If they do not produce any, find out as much as you can about them. You will then be in a better position to compose a letter about why you are suited to the company.
Consider the companies requirements and decide what they are looking for. Consider then whether you have the skills, abilities and qualities, and, if so, how these can be best conveyed.
Look again at your C.V. - does it cover all the necessary points? If not, you may need to revise it. If it does, what points are there on the C.V. that you would wish the employer to note?

General Points

Writing a letter is not always as straightforward as might be supposed. It is worth taking time to create the best possible impression. Size, quality of paper, layout and neatness all contribute to this effect. By the time the letter has been read, the employer will have been influenced by the way it has been written, as well as by its content.
Every CV sent by post needs to have a covering letter to introduce it.

The letter ought to:

  • - encourage the employer to take your CV seriously;
  • - set the reader's expectations of what will be in the CV;
  • - persuade the employer that you are a suitable candidate for the job;
  • - indicate evidence for the claims you make about yourself;

The letter should include:

  • - the purpose of the letter i.e. the application for a training contract/pupilage;
  • - the reasons why you are applying to that company;
  • - the highlight of the best two-three things you can offer the company;
  • - a sign off - ('Please accept my enclosed CV as application for a training contract/pupilage. I hope you will look on my application favorably.').

Job Interview


The key to a successful job interview is preparation. The more prepared you are, the more relaxed and confident you will be during the interview. The suggestions below will help you in your preparation and get you on your way to a successful interview.

Research the employer. Know the practice areas of the company and the background of its members.

Carefully analyze your skills and abilities and formulate your career goals. Once you have a clear picture of what you can offer an organization, you will be better able to express that at an interview.
If possible, review some of the typical questions employers ask and practice answering them in ways which highlight the appropriate skills/abilities.
Always back up statements about yourself with proof (i.e. don't just say you are organized, demonstrate it with examples such as how you developed a more efficient client database at your last position, etc.)
With regard to areas of inquiry which may be uncomfortable or flaws, develop an answer with which you feel comfortable, so as to avoid being caught off guard or stumbling over the answer. Re-direct to some of your positive qualities. (i.e. grades-did you do better in practical vs. theoretical courses; did you show improvement; do you have work experience.)
Make sure you know well where the Company is located and how to get there.
Include in your briefcase or portfolio, copies of your resume and documents, reference page and any other materials you may be discussing.

At the Interview

Be on time.
Appearance - clean, neat, and professional - look and act like a specialist, not a student.
Deal with secretaries and associates with the same respect and professionalism you would with a senior partner. Your relationship with all members of the company impacts the hiring decision. Remember the interview begins the minute you walk in the door.
Convey a positive attitude - many a job has been lost over lack of enthusiasm.
Demonstrate a real interest in the employer.
Try never to answer with a simple yes or no; if a direct yes or no is required, answer and then elaborate, but be brief and to the point.
Control excessive, fidgety, nervous behavior.
It is OK to exhibit a sense of humor; not by throwing out one liners, but by displaying humor appropriate to the situation.
No matter how lax or informal an interviewer, always remain professional.
Be honest when answering all questions.
Be prepared for multiple interviewers and day long interviews, especially with larger companies and corporations. Knowing something about each interviewer can arm you with new information for each interview.
