Applying for a job is a profession in itself and to effectively advertise yourself is a real art. Moreover, the rules differ for each sector. Totally different things are important for a job as a technician / scientist in chemistry compared to other jobs like e.g. HR manager.
Applying for a job is all about selling an image, your image! But how do you accomplish that through a 'static document' like a CV. What is important to mention and how do you make sure that people see the right things? How can you personalize your CV and avoid that it is just a 'technical' document.
