Transforming Your American Resume Into An Irish CV
Special thanks to the career services staff at Dublin business school

Irish CV's follow many of the same rules as American resumes.

  • Use action verbs
  • Write in short phrases, not complete sentences
  • Focus on skills you've acquired, particularly computer skills, languages, communication, etc.
  • Include volunteer experiences

Even though Americans and the Irish speak the same language, some aspects differ between their resume styles:

  • What Americans call a resume, the Irish call a curriculum vitae or CV.
  • Dates should be listed: day/month/year. Thus, December 15, 2010 would be listed as: "15 December 2010".
  • Put "USA" after the state, in the addresses of American sites where you've worked.
  • Spelling is different in Irish-English from American-English. Where possible, try to use the Irish spelling. "Program", for instance is "programme"; "utilize" is "utilise".
  • Majors are called "specialisations". Terms like "Dean's list" or "GPA" are not used in Ireland. Translate your GPA as follows:
    • GPA= 1st class honours;
    • 3.5-3.9 GPA = 2nd class honours, grade 1;
    • 3.0-3.4 GPA = 2nd class honours, grade 2;
    • GPA under 3.0 = no distinction (therefore, omit your GPA if it is under 3.0).
