Curriculum Vitae in Italy

The Curriculum Vitae is the EU version of the resume is the applicant’s business card, providing all the information about the candidate in a condensed format. You will be valued on your CV prior to receiving any appointment, therefore it is imperative to have your CV in order, and if you are not Italian you should be sure to have it in a format that Italian recruitment agencies or companies can understand and extract the information required with ease.

Just like every other piece of content, you need to have substance and form, but most importantly you must deliver it! Let’s find out how to draft a stunning and effective CV.

CV Structure

There is no perfect nor bullet proof CV, partially because you need to make it personal and adapt it to yourself. If you came here to find a shortcut in drafting your CV, we are very sorry to disappoint you. You need to work on it.

The CV must be short and detailed (max 3 pages long), easy to read, and it must sum up the candidate’s experience. Put yourself in the recruiter’s shoes who checks hundreds (or thousands!) CV daily, the recruiter needs to make a decision in a handful of minutes and your information must be delivered timely if you want to beat the competition.

The “perfect” CV provides a thorough answer to the below questions:

  • Who are you?
  • Where are you from?
  • What do you know?
  • What is your experience?
  • What do you want to do in the future?

You are then required to include the following information in your CV:

  • Personal details and best contacts to reach you
  • Professional experiences from the most recent to the oldest one. Skip all the unrelated job experiences or odd ones.
  • Education path from the most recent to the oldest one
  • Language skills
  • Technical skills
  • Future goals and professional path
  • GDPR and privacy consent using the following formula ““Autorizzo il trattamento dei dati personali contenuti nel mio curriculum vitae in base all’art. 13 del D. Lgs. 196/2003 e all’art. 13 del Regolamento UE 2016/679 relativo alla protezione delle persone fisiche con riguardo al trattamento dei dati personali.”

The European Union has also introduced a EU based format named Europass. This is an attempt to create uniformity in the CV sector.
