Cover Letter Guidelines and Samples
More and more jobseekers are using a cover letter (literally, ‘A letter of self-recommendation’ in Chinese) to grab an employer's attention and to stand out from the competition. Each cover letter you write should be targeted to the potential employer and position. Customize your letter so that it specifically relates your skills to the available position.
Résumé/CV Guidelines and Samples
There are no rigid rules for the submission of a résumé/CV (curriculum vitae). Generally, however, it should be one page in length (two maximum) and should include, at the top of the first page, personal information including your name, address, telephone number and email information. A statement of career objectives should follow.
You'll find more advice and cover letter and resume samples in the complete China Guide.
