Nobody can avoid writing an application. One of the most important documents is the résumé. It not only gives the application letter its own character in order to be able to convince the special company, it should also be kept up to date at all times. Inga Symann from the editorial team at answered a few exciting questions about it.

JOBVERDE: Why is a good résumé so important?

Inga Symann:The resume represents together with the Write to the whole, so to speak personal business card of the application. The curriculum vitae in particular contains all important information from life and shows whether applicants * fit into the respective job profile. Every resume is individual and unique, depending on what the applicants have already done and achieved in their career. It is important that the curriculum vitae is attractively designed, uniform and clear structured and is free of spelling, grammar, and formatting errors. Because HR managers usually don't have a lot of time. Therefore, the résumé must show within a few seconds or minutes that the applicant is accurate the right one for exactly this point.

The goal of a résumé is to be accessible to the reader without spending a lot of time important factors to be presented clearly and objectively. He is so to speak the appetizer before the interview, with which those responsible are to be made curious. Since the scope should in principle not exceed two DIN A4 pages, the content must be selected as specifically as possible and still be complete. This means that applicants should read the job posting carefully and post their application or résumé on the conditions align. If you apply for a position in marketing, the internship in the daycare does not need to be explained in more detail. And one of the important résumé tips: You don't have to include all the points in the job posting. Of course, if you don't have extensive IT skills yet, you shouldn't describe it that way. It is better to describe this with a great affinity for IT - this shows the new employer that interest and also the ability to express yourself. Problems with the old employer were also not included in the application. The employer will ask, but the applicants do not have to go into it in detail. The absolute no-go for every employer, however, is one Gap in resumethat cannot be explained. At this point it is good if the applicants are honest.

What criteria can be used to determine how “creative” a CV can be?

There is no real recipe for a resume. The creative design always depends on the job description and the position for which you are applying, of course. A media designer has more freedom than a bank employee - on the contrary, artistic professions usually require even more creativity. Another important résumé tip, however, is that structure, overview and unity should always be present.

Especially with regard to sustainable and green jobs - what tips would you give applicants to make a lasting impression?

A lasting impression is always created if the application profile fits the job advertisement well. When design and structure go well together. With regard to sustainable and green jobs, it is important that applicants can show experience in this area on their résumé and make it clear why this topic is so important to them. That arouses the interest of the readers. After all, they are looking for employees who work just like they do. And of course the CV tips already mentioned apply here, such as that the application is tailored to the position.

What makes the dot on a good résumé?

The icing on the cake of a good résumé are basically the evidence that can be provided for the information, i.e. certificates and information on further training. Have the applicants acquired special certificates, qualifications or even awards that they can insert? Letters of recommendation can - depending on the employer - also represent a dot on the i. Was the applicant particularly committed or highlighted? This is also important for the new employer, as the person then clearly focuses on the expected commitment based on the recommendation.

What are the different application options and which would you prefer?

A few years ago, the classic application folder by post was the only way to present yourself to new employers. Nowadays there are many other variants and the classic application is almost obsolete. However, that mostly depends entirely on the individual companies and their HR departments. The advantage of the classic application is that you can feel the care and individuality of the applicants even more. In principle, however, the same rules apply to online applications - you just don't have anything in your hand anymore, but on your computer. Here, too, care and accuracy apply just as much as with the paper version. The big advantage for the company is that the documents can get to the right place internally more quickly. And of course, the aspect of saving paper with the online variant is a very special green advantage.

As an employer, what do you pay particular attention to in these CVs?

In general, the important points, i.e. the résumé tips, have all already been mentioned. It is very important that the application and the résumés are geared towards the advertised position. It's really no fun to read the application if nothing really fits together and the documents are carelessly prepared. You immediately notice that the applicants have no desire to apply or have not yet found the right employer. If, on the other hand, an applicant is really passionate about something and you can already tell from the data, reading applications is also a lot of fun. Then you like to invite you to an interview and you are really excited to get to know them.
