Very dificult to find a job...maybe the CV is not well done?

Hello, I've been trying and trying and at the beginning the responses were mostly that I haven´t the sufficient German skills.
As time as passed, I'm having German classes to improve my skills and I'm almost at A2 level.

By now, the responses are that my experience and skills do not fully respond to what they are looking for.

Maybe my CV is not very well oriented?

Can anyone with experience take a look on my CV and give me a feedback?

Thanks

Hello,

What I learnt here is, "the more, the better". I'd add details to your experience, goals and so on. Regarding your education, I think it's important to mention where did you do the trainings, hours.

I'd also add an application letter. Reference letters are a plus.

Hope it helps.
Cheers,
Martin

I agree. You really need to flesh the whole thing out a lot more.
Translate the name of your Business Administration school into English.
Give some details on the projects and the experience you've derived from them.
Give accomplishments, not just job titles and duties.

Hello, normally I send attached annexes, cover letter, study plan and reference letters.

What do you mean about trainings and hours?

Thanks
