I am heading back to the real world in the summer after a couple of years teaching in the wander of the world that is Taiwan. I came here pretty much straight after getting masters (temporary job to get the air fare in between). I want to head back into an entry level position probably in the finance field. To this end I want to send some of my CV now to a few possible employers.
I would appreciate some advice from any of you who have been on the other side of the recruitment process.
I am essentially still looking at graduate schemes but now I have the ‘lived in Taiwan and teaching’ thingy to add to the CV. Would you prefer this work experience to come first or the Education stuff that you would expect from an entry level type chappy?
Styles of CV. I have noticed that there are a number of styles and formats around. There are also templates, including templates in MSWord. It is ok to use these, or does it put you the recruiter off?
For those who have gone this route before (or anyone else for that matter)…
- How did you or would you sell the teaching experience?
