What are you looking for in a CV and essay?

  • The Embassy is looking for strong candidates who can display successful academic, professional, and leadership experience, which is shown in the applicant’s CV and academic essay.
  • CV –  clear and concise one-page, French-style CV (not required to be in the French language, format samples can be found online).
  • The essay will help us assess, among other things, your proficiency in academic writing and your ability to lay out a compelling argument in 500 words or less.
    • Please note that we are not looking for a cover/motivation letter or an essay version of the CV
  • We therefore advise you to use them intelligently and not waste them on redundant information.
