How to write your first cover letter and CV in English


Writing your CV in English is a must these days but it can be overwhelming especially if you've never done it before. Whether you have a job application that calls for it or you find yourself living overseas, it’s always wise to be prepared. In this post, I’m going to share a little bit of my experience living in New Zealand and how I went about writing my first cover letter and CV. Plus I will share some resources and tips to help you write your own.

When I lived there back in 2007, we only had Microsoft Word and the school computer lab. A classmate found a template on a local website and gave it to me and, I started from there. Needless to say, that template wasn't as good as the ones you can get now but, it served its purpose. Today you can find beautiful ones on Canva website that will make your CV stand out. So I highly suggest you use this resource.
