Your full documentation should generally consist of a letter, your CV and your references. You may choose to supplement this with project lists, an overview of your skills, samples of your work etc.
Below is a small overview of the style weprefer.
By looking at your photo, the HR department can make an initial judgment, which will principally have to do with the quality of the photo, the image it gives out and a suitable choice of clothing. The photo should be taken by a professional photographer.
The letter is a kind of report, in which you evaluate your abilities and knowledge. You should make reference to your professional goals and ambitions, and your personal profile, among other things. Details regarding your mobility and an idea of your salary expectations are also important information for our HR department, and will take you a step closer to success.
The curriculum vitae (CV) provides an overview of your career to date. What experience and knowledge can you contribute? Structure your career history starting from your current position and work backwards, using generic terms. Your CV should be presented clearly and comprehensively for the reader, and should not contain any gaps. Please describe each role and the responsibilities involved in a couple of bullet points.
These should include school, further education and university certificates, verifications of completed internships, courses and employers' references. Depending on the size of the attachment, we also recommend including a list. Please be careful, however, not to overwhelm your counterpart with paper and to separate the essential from the non-essential. You should also observe chronological order here.
