Need help - resume / CV review

Hello collective wisdom of the English Forum Switzerland

I am looking for a new job (in the US or Canada), and I haven't had much luck yet. Some of it may be me, some of it may be my resume.

Is there someone on this board with resume optimization skills and / or HR / hiring / recruiting experience, preferably in a US / Canadian environment, who (in return for a reasonable fee or bier or whatever) could help me improve my resume??

Thanks!

A big THANK YOU to the friendly folks that helped me pimp my resume.




Is anyone interested in being the guinea pig for the new & improved CV?

Re: Need help - resume / CV review

hi, perhaps I may be able to help you with this. I do quite a lot of editing work, though I am not quite sure exactly what you need help with in terms of the cv.

Re: Need help - resume / CV review

Hi,

Which term is normally used in Switzerland; CV or Resume?

I'd guess Resume is the norm?

I'm planning to submit my CV/Resume in English.

Thanks

The problem may not be your CV at all, but you, well not you, but your citizenship. For example, if you are not Canadian, it is not easy to obtain permission to live and work in Canada. Many companies just can`t be bothered making the application and dealing with the paperwork involved and then waiting many months for an answer. It isn`t any easier if you are married to a Canadian, as this still does not give you the right to automatically live and work in Canada.

Mrs. Doolittle - I know that it adds complexity to hire a furner, regardless of whether it's in the US or Canada. Thanks.

In the meantime I will continue to polish my resume, play the US Greencard lottery and finally send my immigration paperwork to the Canadians.
