About this book

Are you a graduate, postgraduate or PhD student?  Building a CV or profile can be difficult for anyone, but especially for those whose first language is not English.  This book is essential for those looking to promote themselves in the academic community, and can be used both for self-study, as well as in an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course.  The book contains tips, do's and dont's, and discussion points that can be used by instructors.

Based on interviews with recruiters and an analysis of hundreds of CVs from around 40 different countries, the book is structured as a series of FAQs. Topics covered include:

  • how recruiters and HR people analyse a CV
  • whether using a template is a good idea
  • how to present your personal details and whether to include a photo
  • how to write an Objective and a personal profile
  • what to write in each section (Education, Work Experience, Skills, Personal Interests)
  • how to highlight your language, communication and team skills
  • how to get and write references

The last chapter of the book contains a simple template to help you get the job of your dreams!
