What is CV correction in French?

Although the text of a CV calls for a rather telegraphic style, especially if the CV is only one page long, here's what our proofreaders will check:

  • Spelling

  • Grammar

  • Syntax

  • Verb conjugation

  • Concordance of tenses

  • Punctuation

  • Typography

They will also check:

  • Language level

  • Overuse of acronyms

  • Simple turns of phrase

  • The presence of keywords corresponding to the targeted job offer

  • Overall legibility and coherence

The recruiter's checklist for a perfect CV

Our proofreader will check that your curriculum vitae includes the usual headings:

  • Civil status

  • Training and qualifications

  • Professional experience

  • Professional know-how and skills

  • Soft skills or cross-disciplinary skills

  • Portfolio for a creative person

  • Foreign languages section

  • Professional objective

  • Leisure activities and places of interest

These headings normally appear on any simple CV template, including free ones. Any good candidate who writes a CV aspires to apply for the job of their dreams and land a job interview. They will not deviate from this checklist... at the risk of standing out from the other applicants.
