Eyetracking study: That's why a perfect CV is so important!
The curriculum vitae is the heart of your application. Recruiters are very likely to scan your CV even before the cover letter, which will convince with your ultimate closing sentence. This is also what the StepStone eye tracking study showed: At 68%, the CV has the greatest weight of the entire application, ahead of the motivation letter (22%) and references (10%). Nevertheless, under time pressure and a heavy workload, the CV is only worth a brief glance for many HR managers - on average, HR managers spent 43 seconds examining the CV in the eye tracking study. In just a few seconds, your CV has to communicate that you are the right person for the job of your dreams. Especially if you have decided to apply for a short job.

Structure of the perfect CV

In German-speaking countries, the tabular curriculum vitae has become widely accepted. Its clear structure helps the recruiter scan your curriculum vitae in a few seconds. The main focus should be on and your qualifications and your professional career, as recruiters spend by far the longest time looking at your professional experience. The StepStone eye tracking study also found that the average time spent looking at the work experience section was around 22 seconds - far ahead of the education section (6 seconds). Start with the most recent job first.

In the CV you should provide the following information:Personal information and contact details (name, date of birth).
Photo (It should give a good first impression with positive body language, the right cropping and setting. See our tips for the perfect application photo).
Intended position (naming a specific position is an advantage but not a must if you are sending a speculative application, for example).
Professional history (job position, employer, duration and areas of responsibility). The most recent information is listed first.
Education / vocational training / internships abroad / / further training including period, certificates, degrees. With relevance to the desired job.
Special knowledge, qualifications and languages (hard skills!).
Hobbies as indicators of soft skills
You can omit the following information from your CV:
You can safely leave out the place and date in the CV. This information is already in the covering letter.
The signature at the end of the CV is also not absolutely necessary. If
allows, you can sign at the bottom, but in practice this is usually not very relevant.
Including marital status in the CV is an old custom. However, it is not necessarily required. In any case, your qualifications and professional experience are more important.
