    Default Resume to CV

    How did you go about turning your home country resume/CV into a NZ appropriate CV?

    Did you hire someone to do it?

    If so, do you have a recommendation?

    Did your recruiter do it for you?

    Did you read books and do it yourself?

    Did you not change anything?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    We changed nothing on our CV's. As far as I'm concerned, as long as all the relevant information is present and set out in a professional manner I couldn't see the point in re-arranging it.

    I've been involved in recruitment in the past and would be happy to look over your CV if you are concerned.

    One thing I found helpful here (for both mine and Woz's CV's) was to ensure there is an email contact for your last two referees - much more convenient for a Kiwi employer to get hold of them.

    Just my thoughts

    Hello Carl and Liz

    Here is the tips about changing resumes to CV in NZ style :

    When we send our NZ-formatted CV to potential employers, it works very well and we got job offers. So, this style has been proven.

    By the way, I have been working as Recruitment Manager for more than 10 years in 3 countries.
