Resume Writing (Deutsch - American English - German)

English: Aren't you getting any calls on your resume / application with companies in Germany, Austria or Switzerland? One likely reason is that your CV and cover letter do not meet the standards and requirements for applying for a job with German companies, which are very different from what you are used to in the US.

Our experienced resume writers and translators are familiar with the finer points of applying for a position in Germany. They are standing by to create the right German job application for your career level!

Deutsch: Benötigen Sie Hilfe beim Erstellen Ihres Resumes für die USA? Wenn Sie sich erfolgreich in den USA bewerben wollen, dürfen Sie nichts dem Zufall überlassen. Es bestehen gravierende Unterschiede zwischen einer Bewerbung in den USA und dem Lebenslauf samt Anschreiben und Referenzen, wie er in Deutschland üblich ist.

Unsere Career Adviser und Übersetzer sind mit den Feinheiten und Unterschieden für jede Karrierestufe vertraut. Wir helfen Ihnen, Ihre Bewerbungsunterlagen für amerikanische Firmen professionell und aussagekräftig zu gestalten.

My GUCC Experience

"The Career Adviser was extremely helpful in providing me with additional career avenues to explore and in providing technical advise regarding my job search in Germany. I especially appreciated his thorough preparation and detailed approach to presenting his advice, as well as his followup correspondence.

The Career Adviser service provided me with a thorough overview of how the job search process differs in Germany versus the USA.

Through an impartial review of my resume and skill set, my adviser also aided me in expanding the types of employers and opportunities that I am exploring.

I would rate my Career Adviser at the top of the scale 9/10. He responded to my questions thoroughly and followed through with a detailed summary of our discussion. As a native of Germany his information was insightful, inspirational and will greatly aid me in a successful job search in Germany.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Germany-USA Career Center to others seeking to work in Germany or the USA."

It was very helpful for me. It helped me

  • how to create a cover letter
  • how to put my CV in a correct form
  • to get an external impression of myself
  • to get new ideas for my job search.

I would recommend the Germany-USA Career Center because the adviser went strict and fast through my questions and didn´t talk to much. There was no information overflow. So I got the answers for many questions.
