CV versus Resume – describing the differences (UK tekst)

What’s the difference between a Resume and a Curriculum Vitae (CV) – CV versus Resume?

This depends on where you are living and what you do for a living. There are as many explanations as there are different ways to use a CV versus Resume. There are although some simple rules in the discussion about a Resume versus a CV. Below we will try to enlighten you and give you an insight in the biggest differences.

Differences from Geographical point of view

If you are living in Europe including the United Kingdom, you will be able to use the terms CV and Resume rather interchangeably. There is little difference between them for people living in EU/UK. Although CV is more used than Resume here. If you live in the United States, the differences between a Resume and a CV can be big; you could say that a CV in a way is a special type of Resume.

In North America, most professionals in the business world would always have a Resume, being a two pager, consisting of the most important information about you and your expertise.

If you are working in more specialized areas like highly academic jobs within for instance research, medicine or similar, you would probably know a CV as a presentation of everything that you have done in your career including, all work experience, all educations, diplomas, honours, project you worked on and concepts created in your work. A CV will be a substantial longer document with all this information.

Differences in the Length of a CV / Resume

There are off course more specific differences then how many pages a CV/Resume would consist off. Depending on if you have for instance listings of scholarly accomplishments, publications (academic or business), articles this would be considered a CV. On the other hand more business achievements, skill, and credentials would be part of a Resume.

A basic guideline for a North American Resume would be a 1-2 page document consisting of the most important information, trying to sell you to potential employer. A North American CV, as used mostly for academic positions, will contain a substantial amount of information about everything that you have done, and all educations you have, and typically consist of several pages. Instead of a Resume which is the major accomplishments you have done the CV will have all the relevant and mandatory achievements and credentials.

In EU/UK, CVs can be very short or extremely long, depending on what you want to achieve and what you want to share. It is mostly depending on what position you are applying for.

It is rather confusing what to do

It can be confusing what to do, but instead of just trying to do the right thing, consider sending an email to the employer and simply ask for what level of details they are asking for and offer them further details on request. The only thing that can happen is that they will remember your name and this might give you an opportunity to be seen as professional because you asked what they were looking for – an interview opportunity might not be as far away as it was if you had not asked or if you had made the wrong assumptions and had send your CV/Resume in the wrong format / level of detail.

You should also be aware of the fact that the cover letter or the application will be seen as you trying to get the employer to read your CV/Resume to see if your competences are the right ones for the position.

Reference guide to the major differences between a CV and a Resume

North America

CV or Curriculum Vitae

  • Typically 6-15 pages (can be even bigger)
  • Usually used within academic or science
  • Complete listing of all achievement and experience
  • All elements are thoroughly described
  • Must be read thoroughly and not easy to get a simple overview

Resume

  • Typically 1-2 pages (max. 3 pages)
  • Usually used within business (administration)
  • Summary of accomplishments, credentials and achievements
  • Highlighting the important elements
  • Easy to get an overview

Europe

CV or Curriculum Vitae

  • Can range from a simple 1-2 pages to as long as necessary
  • Can be used in any area of business
  • Depending on what job you are applying for it can be detailed or simple

Resume

  • Not used in Europe

Main objective

The main objective of a CV or Resume is to give the employer all necessary information for him to create an overview of the person applying for a job so that he can decide whom to choose for an interview.

If ever in doubt, call the potential employer and ask them what they need then you already have a “toe” in the door.

Different writing styles of Curriculum Vitae writing (UK tekst)

Different writing styles of Curriculum Vitae writing

It can be difficult to search around in the enormous amount of ideas, opinions and guides that is available today. Here you can find descriptions on the different writing styles of CVs that is recommended. There is not one optimal or correct version – the right style depends upon a lot of different factors and to find out what will work best for you, will be something you discover when you have tried different versions.

The final result should hopefully be that you gain full control of your CV and get the job of your dreams.

There are three styles you could choose from:

Functional Curriculum Vitae

This CV style is based mostly on your skills; it concentrates on the acquired skills you have gathered in the past, but also how you have used these skills in your previous positions. This style would be the best style to use if you have gaps in your employment history and/or want the recruiter to focus on your expertise/skills rather than discovering your visible gaps in your employment history. Not that you should withhold any important information, but you don’t need to make it obvious for the recruiter to see these negative facts in your CV.

You could say for whatever reason – if your skills / expertise are more important for a recruiter / headhunter than your qualifications or employment history, then a functional CV is the obvious choice.

Performance Curriculum Vitae

The performance Curriculum Vitae style mostly focuses on past performance. This is often the case if you’re a major achiever or very often seen in “sales” or “economic” related positions. With this type of CV you will focus the attention of the recruiter on your performance/achievement during each chronological job listed in your employment history. For example if you have been on the same step on the ladder for some years and achieved a lot at your work, but now you want to take the next step in your career. You can – by using this type of Performance CV – , show that you are a high performer and have achieved goals; that you have done this for some years and now you’re ready to take the next step. If the recruiter / headhunter recognize this, he knows you’re committed and will do the little extra “something” to achieve your next goals.

Targeted Curriculum Vitae

A targeted type of Curriculum Vitae would focus on the requirement of the vacant position and exclude most other unnecessary information that could distract the recruiter / headhunter from judging you to be the perfect match for the vacant position. Sometimes this could be the case if you’re from a completely different sector or your employment history is too diversified to be a perfect match. The skills and expertise you have acquired during your professional working experience has helped your professional capacity, but it is not directly applicable to the vacant position unless you illustrate why. That’s why in this case the best idea would be to have a CV targeted for that specific job.

Which CV type is the best?

Standards, guides or rules are almost not best used as they are, and this is especially the case with regards to your CV or Resume. The best thing that you can do is to take these good ideas and put them together to become what will be called a “Combination Curriculum Vitae”. This style of a CV is the most used format. You basically use a little of all the above styles when you are trying to make that perfect CV. It is rare that a clean type would be used, as the job vacancies are fairly complex and your employment history would need to be targeted every time to answer the requirements of the recruiter / headhunter.

Privacy – ”You have no privacy. Get over it” – or handle it! (UK tekst)

Privacy – ”You have no privacy. Get over it” – accept it or try to handle it – if that is possible at all!

PrivacyThe above quote from the CEO of Sun in 1999 seems to be more evident than ever – after a week where it was illustrated that Apple is tracking our phone calls and our geolocation – just one week after Facebook was advised to “better protect its users and improve overall security” by Sophos is seems more then relevant to touch this important subject, once again.

In several blog posts I will focus on and describe several privacy issues and especially their effect on your CV’s and job process related risk and behavior – it is as very difficult balance between giving and controlling information, being open or being closed in behavior!

Some of the subjects I will comment is:

  • Public / available information
    How to find the right balance between being found by headhunters on social networks and not show to much information making it possible to misuse the information.
  • Cyberstalking
    Is an increasing problem and often it is easy to find the necessary information in your CV to either harass you or stalk you.
  • Your web history is being tracked with cookies and other smart tools
    Who to seem what and when – what if shared
  • Search engine results
    What can We find out about you if we search you on Google and others – if the information is not the same as in your CV – what is the correct information and how can you – or can’t – change the search impression
  • Social networks
    We all love social networks – the LinkedIn of this world  – but what happens if your network is with the wrong guys ?
  • Fake job offers
    Increasing in numbers trying either to get you to do something you should have avoided or just to get information from you – see my CEO comments here on this matter LINK
  • CV Database scams
    Inventing traffic on the CV Database site or fake interest in you – can make you make the wrong decisions – see my CEO comments here on this subject LINK
  • Spam
    An old friend – still there and stronger than ever!
  • Bacn
    The new recipe – mails from a provider where you accepted – or did not remove the check-mark within the 44 pages standard terms – is increasing and drowning you in mails missing the important one

Promover din Google+ profil som indgang til din CV

Promover din Google+ profil som indgang til din CV

Promover din Google plusMed få simple tekster tilføjet din profil du kan promover din Google+ profil er placeret øverst på search sider. Dette kan  have stor betydning når en headhunter eller et rekruteringsfirma søger efter dig i Google eller andre søgemaskiner samt hjælpe dig med at håndtere din web profil og hermed bevare den fulde kontrol over dine CVs.

For at følge op på vores tdligere indlæg om hvordan du anvender din Google+ profil som et “Interactivt CV” er denne artikel om, hvorledes du vedligeholder og anvender din Google+ profil, som indgang til dit CV.

Det kræver kun, at du ændrer / tilføjer 3 ting til din profil, så din profil kan  rykke til toppen af søgemaskinerne:

  1. Google+ profil / About sektion
  2. Links sektion
  3. Søgbar

Google+ profil / About sektion

I denne sektion skal du tilføje typiske data for dit CV. Dette inkluderer en kort introduktion, som skal summe op på hvem, du er som person.

Introduktion

Her kan du skrive en lille introduktion til dig som person. Dette afsnit kan du finde i din professionelle opsummering i dit Comoto CV.

Fremhæv dine styrke

Her skriver du om dine erfaringer. Denne sektion er kun beregnet til at være en liste opdelt af kommaer, da du her ikke kan editere teksten. Derfor er det et godt sted at placere nogle positive ord om dine styrker.

Beskæftigelse

Venligst indtast din nuværende beskæftigelse som “Titel” ved “Selskab”

Erhvervserfaring / Uddannelse

I erhvervserfaringsfeltet indtaster du dine tidligere beskæftigelser, som “Selskab” og “Titel” og tidspunktet, du arbejdede der. Husk at sikre digat  dette stemmer med dit CV. Under uddannelse indtaster du dine udddanellser på samme måde, som ved Beskæftigelse med “Skole” navn, “Eksamen” samt tidspunkter.

Husk at indtaste dem i den rette rækkefølge, da det ikke er muligt senere at ændre denne.

Links

Under links kan du tilføje links til de websteder, som har relevant information om dig som person. For eksempel kan du have et link til din Comoto Web Profile, din private Blog eller bestemte websider. Anvender du Linkedin, Xing, Viadeo eller andre sociale netværk til dit professionelle netværk bør du også tilføje dem. Du kan også tilføje et link til din Facebook profil.

Husk at informationen på alle disse kilder altid skal være overenstemmende.

Søgbar

For at sikre at alle de informationer, du lige har oprettet, er på søgemaskinernes indeks og dermed søgbar så skal du huske at slå  “Search visibility” funktionen til i din Google+ profil. Den kan du finde på din Google+ profil nederst på siden i About sektionen.

Konklusion

Som beskrevet her vil du hermed være i stand til at styre den information, der er om dig på nettet. En Google+ profil er tilmed rangeret  højt på Google’s søgemaskine, når man søger efter en person.

Hvis du har indarbejdet informationerne, som beskrevet i denne artikel, vedrørende din uddannelse (med dine eksamner), din erhvervserfaring (Selskaber og Titler), dine andre erfaringer samt links (som henviser til flere oplysninger om dig) og lavet et par afsnit med korte introduktioner om dig som person, bliver det være meget nemmere for en headhunter at finde den rette information om dig og for dig at have fuld styr på informationen. Betragt dette som en forsikring, at du er i kontrol over ikke kun dit CV, men også anden information om dig.

En af fordelene herved er også at en Google+ profil er placeret højt på søgninger på Google og andre søge maskiner.

CVCV Tips – CV Layout and Design of CV is important (UK tekst)

CV Layout and Design of CV is important

Maintain different version of you CV, a short one as an appetizer, a general one to include most of your skills and experience and a long one which includes everything you have made.

These different versions should look alike so that you can start out with the short version and send a more detailed version if you are asked to do so. It is also useful to have online versions of your CV. Using Comoto you have that automatically, you can even put a password on them so that only people you want to see them will be able to see them.

There is not only on advice here when talking about layout and design. For instance, within the financial sector a layout with funny graphical details in it will be a show stopper in many cases, they would in many cases see that as unprofessional. On the other hand if you are working within Marketing/Branding a basic textual CV would be seen and boring. So it is important for you to make the design layout reflect you as a person and the area you are working in.

With Comoto you can do this automatically, you have all you detailed information in the database and you can have different layout for different positions or companies. Just by the press of a button you have a new design.

The Comoto team

Comotos mål er at blive “det centrale sted” hvor du kan oprette, klone, kopi, administrere, sikkerhedskopiere og eksportere dit CV og dine følgebreve til ansøgningen hurtigt og nemt. Hvis du vil oprette dit første Comoto CV, anvend den gratis tilmelding, tilføj dine data (eller brug en af de mange lette import funktioner), vælg blandt vores særligt designede skabeloner, få en preview af dit CV og eksporterer til sidst den valgte skabelon i dit foretrukne format (.DOC –.PDF –.PNG) eller skab en Web-profil (offentlig tilgængelig / privat med password).

Der er desuden en række andre unikke funktioner på Comoto – så som mulighed for flere CV’er – kun få klik, og du har oprettet et målrettet CV for et bestemt job.

Comoto CV Manager er på engelsk; men skabeloner og dermed dine CVer (samt filer) er på dansk (eller de ønskede sprog- Du kan nemlig anvende flere sprog samtidigt).

Comoto funny friday: “Twatif” we were restricted to 140 characters…. CV Twitter

“Twatif” we were restricted to 140 characters…. CV Twitter

CV Twitter: What if you were restricted by 140 character sentences in real life, then you would  constantly being forced to stop in the middle of a word or sentence before being able to complete what you were trying to say.

The  people at FromBogotaWithLove have made a hilarious video to demonstrate the consequences. It is just super, well for the faint hearted it should be mentioned that there is some explicit language being used in this video.

Du kæmper for at beskytte dine data så pas på dine private data – men dit password er dårligt!

Hvor mange passwords har du ? Pas på dine private data!

pas på dine dataDet ser ud til verden kan deles i to – dem som har 1 password til alt og dem der har 3 passwords. Den sidste gruppe – som faktisk omfattede mig – har et kort for hurtigt og nem adgang, en mellemting og mere sikker for de mere private logins og et tredie kompliceret password til bankkonti og andet vigtigt! Husk – pas på dine private data!

Hvordan kan jeg påstå dette – jo desværre har flere af de seneste store hacks af passwords på Sony og Gawker vist at en masse personer, som var på begge systemer brugte det samme password  – og husk at ingen af de to systemer brugte krypterede passwords –
så personer som arbejdede på disse og lignende systemer kunne se disse passwords. Det skulle være et narturligt krav at passwords er krypterede (på Comoto er dit password krypteret og vi kan ikke se det – vi passer på din privathed).

Hvoor stærkt er dit password ?

pas på dine dataEt stærkt password kunne være 2hCP7quTEufK – det er qwerty12345 ikke. At lave et sådant passwords er ikke nemt, og jeg bruger selv Roboform til at generere og huske mine passwords (jeg bruger Roboform passwordsoftware fordi den håndterer både IE Explorer og  Firefox og på både Mac og Windows samt på telefon og tablet). Hvis du ikke kan lide eller ikke ønsker at benytte passwordsoftware så brug logiske kombinationer sammen med et højt antal karakterer – for eksempel kombinationen af en svært password som 2hCP7qu**** ved at ændre de sidste 4 karakterer med noget, som beskriver den aktuelle side eller anvendelsen – 2hCP7qu**** bliver så 2hCP7qucomo på Comoto.

Du kan teste styrken af dit password her.

Du tænker måske – hvorfor er et password vigtigt på en CV applikation – først og fremmest fordi det er dine data og dine private oplysninger – og har du nogensinde tænkt på hvad der ville ske, hvis en ukendt begyndte at bruge dine data og dit CV bare for at gøre skade på dig – ansøgte et job, ansøgte et job ved din nuværende ansætters værste konkurent …. jeg vil overlade det til dig selv at tænke videre – eller brug tiden til at få dig den rette password strategi.
