Today communications is considered the most essential skill while getting a job. If you know one or more languages and want to pursue that as your career, you need to learn how to write a CV that impresses the prospective employer. When applying for a bilingual job you must know that though there are plenty of jobs available in the market there are plenty more applicant to these jobs.

Writing a CV for a bilingual job post is no much different from any other regular job application CV. Undoubtedly you will emphasize more on your bilingual skills, and the level of knowledge that you possess. You need to clarify whether your expertise is only in reading the language or can you read, write and speak in the desired language.


When applying for multilingual employment you will follow certain golden rules in order to have an effective CV. You must remember how you present your CV reveals your personality and meticulousness. Therefore always keep you CV precise and crisp. Use white paper and avoid paper with linings or decorating the page with any kind of graphics. Do NOT make any spelling or grammar errors. Always take a typed resume and not a handwritten CV.

There are two sections in the CV: one, professional details section and second, personal details section. Let us discuss them here:

Professional details

First write you professional details. The professional details section of your CV should contain your employment history. You will need to start with your current employed, designation, employed since and duties handled. Stating from present day details you will draw up the list backwards. Therefore, your first employer will feature last on the list.

Personal details

Mention personal details below the professional details section. In the personal section fill basic information about yourself including your education. Your achievements and personal interests (hobbies) will also be a part of this section. Double check your contact details including your name, address and phone numbers as this is what will fetch you interview calls. If you prefer, you may include your contact information even on the top of your CV.

References in the CV

A CV always holds more weight if it has a set of references mentioned, connected to your previous employer. It is preferred that you use references of someone who has directly supervised you. Obviously, because you are interested in bilingual jobs, you will highlight your bilingual jobs that you have worked.
