    Cover letter/Resumer format for HK

    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone can help me on this one:

    Is the cover letter/Resume format the same in HK or is it different from the ones in North America?

    Can you please provide me a link to some of the examples of the CV's in HK as well as the cover letters?

    Last question I have is. What is the definition of a CV anyways?

    Thanks so much,
    Kevin

    While the format of a HK CV is quite different, I managed to find a job with an American style resume.

    Usually, when they ask you to come in for an interview, they ask you to fill out an application that is more or less similar to the HK CV format. So I don't think they really look at that.

    In terms of the HK CV, I know some people actually attach their photographs and list their birthdate and other things that wouldn't appear on a typical resume.
