How to write a German CV/Resume
The German CV/Resume is written to give the university an overview of your educational background and work experience as well as accomplished achievements in related areas. Almost every university in Germany requests a CV as an application document. Which is why we will be giving you detailed information about how to write a German CV/Resume, guidelines from the universities themselves and examples. You will also have access to our FREE CV Creator.
The German CV/Resume must be prepared according to the German standards, which is a tabular resume with chronological or reverse-chronological order. Technically the language of the CV can either be in German or in English. But you should keep in mind, that the admission counselor at the universities only has a few minutes to evaluate your CV, which is why it could be to your advantage to write it in German. However, if your German isn’t very advanced, it may be best to write the CV in English, (using the standards for the German CV) to avoid mistakes.
