About the webinar

When it comes to global dev hiring, the usual CV-writing rules and norms do not apply.

Whether you are new to the job market or looking to transition to the sector, it’s important to understand the nuances of a global development CV.

With recruiters receiving hundreds, even thousands, of applications for a position, they may have just a few seconds to assess your CV. It's critical that you stand out from the crowd by making it easy for them to see at-a-glance why you are a strong fit for the role.

By attending this event, you will learn
  • The basics of a global development CV, including recommended length and format
  • How to highlight your most relevant skills and experience
  • Tips for incorporating dev-specific keywords
  • How recruiters asses CVs - and what they're really looking for
We'll also leave plenty of time to answer your questions at the end of the presentation. We invite you to share them during the event or in advance by submitting to Kate at webinars@devex.com.

And both of these, if one would tell the truth, were foreordained unto the holy place, where greatest Peter’s follower hath his seat. While on this quest, for which thou giv’st him praise, he heard the things which of his victory the causes were, and of the Papal Robe. The Chosen Vessel went there afterward, to bring thence confirmation in the faith, through which one enters on salvation’s path. But why should I go there, or who concedes it? I ’m not Aeneas, nor yet Paul am I; me worthy of this, nor I nor others deem. If, therefore, I consent to come, I fear lest foolish be my coming; thou art wise, and canst much better judge than I can talk.”
