Your application is mostly the first point of contact with the Recruiter or Hiring Manager and as we all know, the first impression counts. So let's make it count!
Your CV is the most important part of your application. Depending on your industry or niche it makes sense to adapt your CV design accordingly (e.g. creative designers should show their skills on their CV). We have created three well-structured yet modern CV templates for you. You can use these on Canva by clicking on the button below. These templates are approved by our recruiters and contain all the necessary sections that you need to show your skills. Please keep in mind, that your CV should not exceed 2 pages. It makes sense to adapt your CV to the specific job description and to keep the information to the main skills required by the job you are applying to.
Now let's have a look at your cover letter. Nowadays not all applications require a cover letter, but we strongly recommend including one whenever you have the possibility as it will make you stand out from the crowd. Use this space to show skills and experiences that are not already in your CV or to dive deeper into job-specific skills. Use this chance to tell your story and get one step closer to landing the job! Our Template below contains some tips on how to structure your cover letter.
