Are you looking for a job or a student placement in Germany?
Have you written your CV or resumé yet?
Have you written it in German?
Have you written it in the same style as the Germans do?
Because I’ve got news for you…
They don’t write them the same way!
There are some major differences between the CV in Germany and one that you might use to apply for a job in the UK or USA.
excerpt from the e-book
But don’t worry, because I’m here to help.
My name is Graham Tappenden and I am a British ex-pat living in Germany.
I have been writing and reviewing German CVs for the past 18 years.
I don’t just speak the language fluently, I studied it and even have a degree in it. I have worked as a translator, interpreter, and even have my own IT consulting business located just outside Frankfurt am Main.
I know what belongs on a German CV.
I know what employers are looking for.
I know what sort of mistakes people make when writing them.
I know how difficult it is to write your first one, when German is not your first language.
There is a myth that all Germans learn English at school and are so good at it, that their command of the language is almost always going to be better than someone else’s German. At least, until degree level. In my experience, this is no longer so.
excerpt from the e-book
Here’s what I am offering you
A 50-page step-by-step guide which takes you through each of the sections of the CV in turn, and tells you what you should include.
Tips on formatting and printing your CV.
An insight into the type of things that German employers are looking for.
- All of this as an e-book for only €25 -
But that’s not all!
Firstly, I’m offering two bonuses
Bonus #1: I have set up a closed area in our AllThingsGerman.net forum, where anyone who buys the e-book can ask me any questions that they might have.
Bonus #2: If you buy the e-book and sign up for my e-mail list, I will send you the e-book as an audio book in MP3 format.
And then, there’s a really special offer
For an addition €25 you can send me your CV and I will review it on the basis of content. I will give you personal tips on how to improve it and make it appeal to a German employer.
Then I will pass it on to a German native speaker, who will check the spelling and grammar for you.
A CV with lots of spelling mistakes and gaps in the time line will not be helped by being in an impressive folder, whereas a perfect CV in a cheaper folder will usually receive more attention.

Still not convinced? Take a look at what some of our readers say about the e-book:
I’ve known Graham for some time and had the pleasure of meeting him, and our work paths have also crossed often online. His book “How to write a German CV” reflects all my dealings with him, in that it is both useful and endowed with meticulous attention to detail.
It sounds almost crass to say that “Germany is different” but in so many respects it is. Getting a job or creating a good CV has become quite relaxed in recent years in many European countries, but that isn’t the case in Germany, where the whole process of employing someone may be much more formal than you would have imagined. For that reason, if you harbour any hopes of employment in Germany, then I would urge you to invest in a copy of How to write A German CV.
