I would like to know if any one could direct me towards the correct format of creating a resume in Spanish... I know it is completely different from the format we use in the US and I would like to find employment as a teacher in Santiago. Any help or advice anyone?
All I know is they don't even call them resumes here. They're curriculum vitae (I'm not even sure of the spelling). Maybe a search with those keywords would help?
Not much help, I know. Good luck!
A resumé (US) or a CV (GB) is known simply as a "Curriculum" in the DR. I haven't checked, but maybe employment sites like Aldaba have formats.
Mine is set out like this:
Residencia: (country of residence if different)
Lugar de nacimiento: (place of birth)
Fecha de nacimiento: (DOB)
Teléfono: (tel no)
Celular: (cel no)
Resumen de experiencia profesional:
(A very brief para describing yourself and your experience.)
(Educational qualifications - high school, degrees, etc.)
(list of employers, job titles, dates)
(2 references, one professional - ideally your present or last employer; one personal/academic)
Informática: (IT skills and experience if not the main area of expertise).
Información adicional: (other personal information that might be relevant. Some put hobbies and interests, travel.)
Actualizado: (last updated)
Hope this helps!
And don't forget to include a 2X2 photo with your CV. You may also simply print the photo on the top-left of the cover page.

U.S. format can be used & may grab more attention (for better or worse) than a typical Dominican c.v.
The format Chirimoya posted above is very typical of what you see in DR. It will include things that U.S. employers "can not" ::wink wink:: consider in hiring decisions such as age, nationality, and physical appearance(the little foto), etc.

I am not from DR so my past emplyers would aslo no be in DR...would the employer in DR still contact them?
Depending on what kind of position they might/could contact your old employer.
