CV HINTS & STYLE

Hints on the most effective style of CV for the Israeli Job Market
 
Our clients prefer CV’s that are short and precise - but do not hide full relevant personal and logistical information.
 
The most important information is what type of position, or career change, you now want - this is best shown in the very first paragraph under the heading of   "current career objective" because the first paragraph is often the only one recruiting managers read!!

Below is a sample format of a CV style which works really well when applying for a specific role.
 Always feel free to discuss it with your Marksman headhunter - details on "About Us" Page of this website  (Natalie Gabay: Senior Headhunter – 058 730 2070 nataliegabay@marksman.co.il)
