And now for this week’s episode…

You already know, to make a good CV in English, it’s not enough just to translate your French CV. Even before dealing with the language, there are big differences between a French and an American CV, a resumé. Besides, what is the difference between a CV and a a resumé?

In this week’s video, you’ll find the answers to these questions:

  • What is the difference between a CV and a resumé?
  • What should we absolutely avoid putting in?
  • Why are the numbers so important in your presentation?
  • Why are the « creation of a process » and the « coordination of teams » not desired on an American CV?
  • What to do with all these French-French diploma names?

Creating a CV takes already a lot of time, in French, but when you have to translate it in English, it feels like a turtle floundering in the mud of the Mississippi.
We ask ourselves many questions: How to present our career? How to turn phrases to be hard-hitting? How to get everything on one page? It’s a real pain in the neck!

If you are considering applying for a position in the US, or in an American company, I beg you, not to make basic mistakes in your CV!
