Specific question about job applications

Regarding something like: https://www.cvmaker.dk/storage/CV-pa...k-eksempel.jpg

In short: In the left side of this CV, you can see bars 1 to 5 in leadership, customer skills, and so on. Is this used in Switzerland?

The long version: Me, my wife and child are moving to Switzerland in a near future, and i really want to have a nice CV ready. In Denmark i have a feeling i make good CV's but i just have a feeling that there is some elements that are different from Denmark to Switzerland. I hope i can get some hints and advise. Or if anyone have a link to real CV's from Switzerland i would love to look at some of that also.

Kind regards
Victor

Re: Specific question about job applications

There is no standard and this cv is usable in CH. In fact it is quite a nice template.

A few notes, though:
Photo is desired on a swiss CV, as well as birth date, nationality and swiss permit type.

Regarding self-evaluation of skills I would be more cautious. I would just list all the skills you have and elaborate at the interview, how good are you in one or the other. The reason is, a lower self-mark in a critical skill will stand out and may prevent them from inviting you. With languages maybe this makes sense, as there are official levels and certificates.
