A brief Youtube video on resumes/CVs

Post by secret.simon » Tue Feb 09, 2021 2:57 am

A Youtube video by an American expat living in the UK/American immigrant in the UK (take your pick on phraseology) on the differences between British and American ways of writing resumes/curriculum vitae.

Resumes & CVs! British VS American

While it looks at only British and American styles of writing resumes/curriculum vitae, I thought it would be useful to people moving to the UK to give them an overview of how resumes/CVs are structured in the UK.

As an aside, I would also point out that many common features of CVs/resumes in other cultures, such as age/date of birth, gender, marital status, etc, are not stated on their equivalent in the UK.
