Build your resume
The CV, this tool still essential to all professionals. As a real professional identity card, it is not always so easy to write and format. Beyond fads and trends such as the video CV, ultra-colorful CVs or skill bars, the CV must meet certain requirements.
Keep in mind that a CV is read in less than 7 seconds by the recruiter, so put yourself in their shoes and place the important information for the position and the company as well as the key figures. For example, among the most important elements, you can indicate:
- The size of the company (turnover, country presence, overall number of employees, etc.)
- The number of people you have referred
- Projects you have had the opportunity to manage
- Your technical and managerial skills
- The specific software and tools you are familiar with
Once you’ve established the substance, move on to the form. Hospitality, food and agriculture are evolving sectors, with their specific codes. So adapt the presentation accordingly: colors, style, font, etc.
In general, there are a few rules to remember:
- Be sober in your presentation
- Put a clear, professional photo on your CV
- Divide your CV into different parts for easier reading (avoid purely vertical format)
- Choose a CV format that can be recognized by applicant processing software (the test: you must be able to copy and paste content)
Recruitment in agriculture, agribusiness or hospitality requires a certain attitude on your part, as a candidate. This attitude is transcribed in particular by your CV. It must be encrypted, legible, synthetic and correspond to the company for which you are applying.
