    I want to know how much and in what way does a CV format matters when it comes to searching a job?
    My husband is a qualified and experienced audio engineer.But we just don’t have an idea that shall we make a proper CV format to apply in good places or it just doesn’t matter how your CV is as long as you have a good experience?

      Sites like Manpower , Monster and have good resume formats and also places where you can apply by particular field of expertise.

      another way is to join LinkedIn and join a particular group or chapter for your husband’s profession. That leads to network and these places have job openings related to that field.


    if you are looking for a job outside your country, should you use the resume/cv format that country prefers?
    for instance, say youre from england and wanted a job in the us. would you use the standard us resume format or a cv?

      No. All the employer wants to know is where you went to school, what job experience you have, and a few notes about you personally. That information translates everywhere you go. Keep it simple.
