CV and Application letter by English
After deciding on the appropriate format, the way to organize the information is equally as important. Below are some guidelines to assist you in creating the best resume.

A. Work History - Create a "Work History Master List," keeping in mind that not everything on your "Master List" will necessarily appear on THIS version of your resume. For paid and volunteer jobs or positions, list the dates started and ended, your job title, and the name and city of the company or organization. Put these jobs in chronological order.

B. Education and Training - Create an "Education and Training Master List," this time including :

1. Schools you attended, with dates, degrees honors.
2. Personal study in your field (classes, workshops, and other informal ways you have learned).
3. Any other credentials or certificates.

C. Job Objective - Compose a clearly stated Job Objective, using a minimum number of words. Ask yourself these questions:

1. WHAT do I want to do?
2. FOR WHOM or WITH WHOM do I want to do it?
3. WHERE do I want to do it?
4. AT WHAT LEVEL OF RESPONSIBILITY?

D. Relevant Skills And Experience - What you want to create - contrary to everything you've heard in the past about resumes - is a word picture of you in your proposed new job, created out the best of your past experience. Steps include:

1. So first, get out your Job Objective and ask yourself what are the five or six major skills required for that job.
2. Get out a sheet of paper for each of those skills or special knowledge areas, and label each page.
3. Then ask yourself, "When did I use those same skills in the past?"
4. Under each of the skills listed, begin to write action-oriented "One- Liner" statements that clearly and concisely describe how you used or developed those skills in the past.
5. Then you can assemble the Relevant Skills and Experience section of your new-job resume by putting those five or six skills paragraphs together on one page.

E. The Highlights of Qualifications - The essential message of the highlights is two-fold:

1. First, that you are QUALIFIED - you have the experience, credentials, and basic skills needed for the job.
2. Second, that you are also ESPECIALLY TALENTED (perhaps even gifted) in the areas that really matter - in other words, for THIS job you're "hot".
3. A typical group of Highlights might include :
1. How much relevant experience you have.
2. What your formal training and credentials are, if relevant.
3. One significant accomplishment, very briefly stated..
4. One or two outstanding skills or abilities.
5. A reference to your values, commitment, or philosophy if appropriate.

Ms. Alexis Ryan
Human Resources Specialist
State Farm Insurance Companies
8900 State Farm Way
Minneapolis, MN 55478

Dear Ms. Ryan:

This letter of application is in regard to the entry-level position with State Farm Insurance Companies. In May, I will receive my Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Macalester College.

As my resume indicates, I recently completed an internship that required independent thinking and problem solving techniques. This position developed my skills in analyzing, identifying and presenting solutions to problems that were associated with the financial statements. Additionally, I have participated in meetings with a company accountant to resolve overspending and reduce a division's deficit. I enjoyed having the opportunity to apply the skills and theories I had learned. In addition, I have sought out volunteer experience during my college years, which has allowed me to interact with youth in the community and gave me a sense that I was working as part of a team. Through my work and volunteer experience, I have had the opportunity to strengthen my accounting, leadership and organizational skills. I believe that State Farm Insurance Companies would benefit from my previous experience and strong work ethic.

Thank you for your time and consideration. At your convenience, I would welcome the opportunity to interview with you.

Sincerely,

Sarah Miller

As an intern in Dean Witter, I was introduced to the highly competitive, dynamic environment of the brokerage industry which gave me invaluable experience in working with financial tools (particularly spreadsheet packages) and creating client presentations. Since then, I have built upon this experience through my current involvement with Andersen Consulting which has taught me how to work as a member of a team and how to meet deadlines under pressure. I have also gained a strong understanding of the dynamics of the consulting industry and the importance of interpersonal skills in client relationships. Finally, my interest in computers has allowed me to develop excellent skills that are crucially important in today's global business environment. I am particularly comfortable with popular financial software, including some brokerage industry-specific applications.

The Morgan Stanley, Dean Witter, Discover & Co. Financial Analyst position is of special interest to me because it is with one of the premier investment banking firms. I would appreciate the opportunity to contribute to a firm with such an impressive U.S. and global presence and with a vision to create the financial powerhouse of the future. Such an opportunity would also provide me with a first-hand, in-depth knowledge of corporate finance and capital markets which is a natural continuation of my education and interests. Through conversations with Macalester graduates working for various investment banks, I understand that an analyst position with your firm requires dedication, discipline and a great deal of self-motivation. I know I thrive in a challenging, high-pressure environment and I believe I possess the necessary qualifications to excel at Morgan Stanley, Dean Witter, Discover & Co.

One of the most importance things is The Highlights of Qualifications
1. First, that you are QUALIFIED - you have the experience, credentials, and basic skills needed for the job.
2. Second, that you are also ESPECIALLY TALENTED (perhaps even gifted) in the areas that really matter - in other words, for THIS job you're "hot".

2. What your formal training and credentials are, if relevant.
3. One significant accomplishment, very briefly stated..
4. One or two outstanding skills or abilities.
5. A reference to your values, commitment, or philosophy if appropriate




wow, thank all to discuss this cool topic I give some more gold's rule in resume:

* Always print your resume on standard letter size, white or ivory rag paper.
* Always have the resume professionally typed, but not typeset, with plenty of space between paragraphs, and allow for adequate margins.
* Always use conventional English. Stay away from multi-syllable words when a one or two syllable word is clearer.
* Always use short paragraphs - preferably no longer than five lines.
* Always make sure the resume and the cover letter are error-free. Proofread, and have others proofread to.
* Always rewrite a resume for a specific company. It's extra work, but may well pay off.
* Always include your significant contributions at each one of your jobs.
* Always allow the most space to the jobs that are most relevant to the job you're applying for.
* Always list your activity with professional, trade and civic associations - but only if they're appropriate.
* Always keep a permanent file of your achievements, no matter how inconsequential they may appear to be. This is the basis for a good resume, and it is also essential information to get a raise or promotion.
* Always give each of your references a copy of your resume.
* Always send a brief, customized letter with each resume.
* Always send your resume by messenger overnight mail if you're applying for a high salary level job and you're reasonably convinced you fit the job specifications.
* Always re-read your resume before interview - chances are the interviewer did just that too.
Notes: Please don't forget this rule. If no, u 'll be regret



So live, could you give me piece of advice for my CV?

Follow your list of tips, I still not know what my trouble is. Maybe, it's too simple as you said. In my opinion, I just give the interviewer the info to show that: I'm qualified for this position. I think my CV will not be clearly and professional if I list so much detail. Anyway, I will talk in detail at the interview. It also gives me a change to show other strong point: confident, good at communication…

You could quote a paragraph from my CV for sample, it's no problem for me. Let open and share

p/s: In addition, I also give interviewer a CD which store all my project for reference.
