Hey, I’m new to the States. Can someone let me know how to build my CV for applying to a U.S.-based job?
If you are moving to the U.S for a job, you will have to apply for an H1-B visa provided by your employer. Some other points that you need to keep in mind are:
- You should be proficient in English
- Include any high-level academic qualifications (e.g., graduate degrees from reputed institutions, GRE scores) even if they are not in the field that you’re targeting because you never know when a company would be interested in hiring someone with such qualifications
- Remember to keep your CV length between one and two pages. Write your CV in American English
- Remember to include your contact information, mailing address, email address, and relevant social media links
Hope this is helpful
