Check of CV and Cover Letter in English for applying for jobs in Germany

An effective job-application sparks the recruiter’s interest in talking with a candidate personally in an interview.

In Germany employers usually expect applications to be in German language so in this case your chances to find a job can possibly be higher.

But as long as your language skills in German are not sufficient it doesn‘t make much sense to apply in German so we recommend you to apply in English instead.

With that goal in mind, this CV check provides you with feedback on your English-language CV and/or Cover Letter and aims to help you to further develop and refine these materials.

Potential areas of focus include:

  • Selection and structure of content
  • Strengthening descriptions of skills and experience
  • Formatting
