tips and advices

how to prepare your cv ?

  • If you have less than 10 years work experience, your CV should take up just one sheet of paper !
  • Highlight the skills and experience that are the most relevant to the vacancy and to Danone.
  • Be clear and precise about your previous experiences (dates, responsibilities, achievements).
  • Remember to include your hobbies and interests (sport, cultural or social activities), which are a great way of showing your uniqueness.
  • Do not forget, your CV is your business card, it gives the first impression the recruiter will have on you! Do not hesitate to check several times your spelling and syntax.

How to prepare your covering letter ?

Your covering letter allows you to share information that you could not include in your CV: highlight your skills and explain why you want to work with us. The letter should be structured into three parts:

  • Your motivations: What Danone and this vacancy inspire in you.
  • Your talents: What can you bring to this job, your expertise, what you have learnot from your previous jobs assignments.
  • Your career goals: What you would like to build within the company, your career plan.

How to prepare for the interview ?

The interview is the ideal moment for telling us who you are, communicating your passion for Danone and the position you are applying for :

  • Find out about Danone beforehand: our activities, our brands and above all our values, our way of working,…
  • Use concrete examples from your professional and personal life to show that this culture means something to you and suits you.
  • Identify the experiences you want to talk abou, the messages you want to get across. Analyze rather than describe: what have you learnt, what would you do differently?
  • Be natural and sincere: the key is to have a good knowledge of your strengths and where you can grow.The goal of the interview is also to see whether you will enjoy the job.

How to build your e-reputation ?

You are present on social and professional networks? So are we.

Either on LinkedIn, Facebook, or anywhere else, try to keep your profile consistent with who you are. Use these networksto build your professional identity and make yourself more visible. Examples from your contacts can be a great inspiration to build an attractive resume. Keep your profiles up to date, as you would with your CV, including all the information onyour skills, experiences, training and specific details. Be careful about your private profiles and pictures: you do not wantto put yourself into a delicate situation.

When you create your profile, try to put yourself into your recruiter’s shoes: what do I see first? What do I learn aboutthe candidate? What can I discover about the candidate that I could not on a written CV?
