Working On My Cv

4 posts in this topic

I'm in the process of converting my resume (for the business world) into a CV (for the teaching world), and I have no idea what to include in any CV I send to a school in Turkey. Here in the US, no one would even think to put their birth date, picture, extracurricular activities, or anything that would imply gender, race, or age on their resume/CV. However, I understand it's common practice overseas -- especially Asian countries -- to include a photo (head shot), birth date, and other things on a CV. Is this the case in Turkey? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

I dont know exactly what you would write on your CV but photos, your date of birth and extra-curricular activities are written on turkish cvs and as far as I understand they are very benifical for employers, I suppose it builds a bigger picture of a person.Good Luck. Love Samantha xxxx

Thanks, Samantha. It's very different from resumes/CV's here in the states. :blink: Since employers aren't allowed to make decisions based on race, gender or age, none of that goes on the resume/CV because then perspective employees cannot sue saying that they were discriminated against...But, I wanted to make sure about what was expected in Turkey before I added a picture and put my birth date on anything. Ugh! :head_hurts_kr[1]: I was an honorary member of the Turkish Student Association for a year - maybe that will help. ^_^

As Sam says they want that type of information and you will find here that they always want your fathers and mothers name on documents too although not necessarily on your CV.I'm sure that year on the Turkish Student Association would be a good thing to include. :)
