Curriculum Vitae Builder

Ahlia University

The CV builder is a smart function on ADREG that is designed to assist students in generating a model Curriculum Vitae to use when applying for internship, employment, etc. Students are encouraged to utilise this ADREG facility to develop their CV overtime, by plugging in their co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, achievements and awards, in the CV builder to develop their CV and reflect on their personal and professional development.

Parts of sections 1, 3, & 6 are automatically generated using the students’ details stored in ADREG. Students are encouraged to fill out the remaining sections that are not generated by ADREG to complete their CVs.

 

1. General Information

Generated by ADREG, the General Information section is composed of basic data and contact details of the student: Name, Date of Birth, Nationality, Mobile, E-mail & Photo.

2. Professional Profile

A short summary that serves as a professional introduction to your CV. It allows applicants to provide a description that highlights their work experience, achievements, skills, and career goals. Use this section to highlight your best qualities in three to four sentences.

3. Education & Qualifications

The Education & Qualifications section provides a brief overview of one’s education, studies, and qualifications to date. It is generally automatically by ADREG, however, students can add more academic information by downloading and manually expanding on their academic history. The latest and most current qualifications should be listed at the top.

4. Career History

This section provides a brief history of your previous employment and jobs that you have worked in. It allows employers to have a quick glance of what work you have done before, where you have done it, and when you have done it. The section is not generated by ADREG, thus, you have to fill it out by yourself. The latest and most current employment should be listed at the top. It is recommended to add some brief bullet points highlighting the main roles, responsibilities, projects and tasks handled.

5. Personal & Professional Development

This section is to showcase skill(s) development, professional (non-academic) qualifications, and continuous professional development (CPD) activities. Professional skills can be acquired through engaging in competitions, student clubs and associations, or through co-curricular activities such as attending a workshop or conference. Personal development refers to creative endeavors and extra-curricular activities including hobbies, sports, and volunteer work. This section must be completed by students through manual entry and can assist them in displaying their most unique traits.

6. Skills

The Skills section comprises a self-rating scale on the CV Builder that rates certain practical skills useful within the work environment. By default, ADREG will develop ratings for certain skills based on your grades from the corresponding courses (ENGL XXX, ARAB XXX, and ITCS XXX). For the remaining skills not automatically by ADREG, you may give a rating using your own honest judgement.

Frequently Asked Questions
