Dear Andyn Many thanks for your book. It helped me prepare my résumé and first time ever I got replies (actually, 5 minutes after posting my updated résumé on LinkedIn I got one email and one call from 2 recruiters :)
So anyway, besides that… I’ve been asked for a CV now by a company that’s interested in my profile (saw it on LinkedIn). If I send a document titled “Résumé of…” would that be bad? Probably not, but it could seem to some like I don’t follow instructions to the letter.
Could I just rename it “CV”? It’s a one page document (not much experience, but enough.. But no skills list, since job descriptions are detailed and seem more useful).
Maybe in a “CV” I could add a skills list but I don’t like the idea of scoring myself “proficient”, “beginner”,experienced with this or that technology… Doesn’t seem to give a lot of precise information.
Any advice, or am I just worrying too much and should just send my résumé already? :)
(I’m Belgian, living in China, looking for a job in HK… So I’m confused about format of the documents.. My résumé looks good I’ve been told by HK people, but no idea if that would be the same for an international company in HK asking a CV)
