While most of the attention in this blog is focused on
career management in the US, there is value in
the awareness of documents for positions in the
European Community. N. Nicolaou brought the
topic of the European CV into class this week. He
found and sent a site for those interested in creating
a European Community CV.
Some differences that stand out between American
and European versions are:
Personal information, including date of birth, photo,
Experience: list responsibilities and full dates like
Education: certifications and full addresses of
Skills: Emphasis on language skill levels in detail;
complete listing of many skill sets– social,
organizational, artistic as well as technical,
even driving licenses.
