The Problem

Why Should You Care About Having A German-Style CV?

Even though you might be looking for an English-speaking job in Germany, chances are high that a German will see your CV and decide whether to invite you for a job interview or not.

Simply translating your CV into English or using the CV that landed you a job in another country won’t cut it.

It’s important to understand:

🥨 The Cultural differences: Did you know that German CVs often include a photo? And that there is a particular format and order that Germans expect to see? Navigating these cultural nuances can feel overwhelming.

🧩 Generic won’t cut it: Other platforms offer generic solutions to craft your CV. They don’t know the nuances of making a CV tailored for the German market.

📝 Content trumps design: Germans don’t care about how beautiful your CV looks. They care about professionalism and what problems you can solve for them. Your CV has less than 5 seconds to make a good first impression.

💪 How to share accomplishments without the fluff: Germans really dislike fluffy or overselling sentences. They prefer result-driven accomplishments. Internationals often struggle with this point.

"Your template and video content have helped me land my dream job at Boeing!

user avatar and star rating

I got my dream job.

For several years I have been looking for an appropriate job in Germany. I had received numerous rejections.

That was until I found your YouTube content, particularly the German-Style CV Template you created.

Using the CV Template from your website, I am now ever so pleased to inform you that a company in Germany has finally said ‘yes’ to my job application.

Your template and video content have helped me land my dream job as a Senior Project Manager at Boeing!

user avatar and star rating

This template is really helpful, especially for people like myself who are non-German and looking for jobs in Germany.

I would recommend everyone who’s new to the German job-seeking market to go through all the packages at a very affordable price.

What I really like the most are the step-by-step explanations, along with examples for each. Just a few weeks ago, I updated my older CV to this new one, and I have applied to somewhere around 30 companies and have received a response from one. I’m very convinced that in a week, I might get more responses. Thanks.


How much time will it take me to create my CV?

You will need to dedicate at least 2 hours to creating your CV. Our Writing Guide (e-book) takes you step-by-step and gives you templates and examples so you can fill out each section correctly.

Is this template ATS friendly?

Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) are not generally used in Germany. Our template is meticulously crafted to align with German standards, ensuring that your CV shines brilliantly in the eyes of German recruiters and lands in the 'yes' pile!

Will you review my CV?

Yes, if you booked the premium package, you will get a 30-minute personalized review. After your purchase, you will find the instructions in the .zip file we deliver to you on how to set up your review call. 

We will not review CVs that don't follow our guidelines or template. You will have to put in the work to create your German-Style CV, and then schedule the call.
