Hello everyone and welcome to Footballers Advice!
In today’s video I will be showing you how to make a professional soccer CV/Resume.
Having a soccer CV/Resume is something a player must have if they want to become a professional soccer player. More than likely when you contact professional teams, coaches, scouts, and agents they will ask for you to send them your resume along with any video high lights you have.
So how to do create a professional looking resume?
To start, I break up how to create a resume in 5 different parts. The order in which I list them is how you create your resume.
1. The first section at the top of your resume is where you should provide your full name and contact information. This includes your phone number and email.
Make sure to also have a professional email address. For example, this should be your email@example.com or whatever email provider you would like to use.
If you also have your own website, like I do, which contains other information relevant to you like your video highlights, provide this information in this section as well.
2. The second section of your resume is located in the upper right hand side of the page and provides your personal information.
This includes a professional looking picture of yourself along with your date of birth listed as (month/day/year), your height listed in feet and centimeters, your weight listed in pounds and kilograms, your position, and any passports that you hold.
It’s also very important that you list your date of birth in this format that way no matter when you send your resume or whenever someone looks at it, they can always find out what your current age is.
Providing the positions you play is also helpful that way coaches know exactly where you would fit within their team.
It’s also very important that you list what passports you hold as this can be the difference between a team signing you or another player. If you hold more than one passport make sure to put this on your resume. This is because it allows the teams and coaches you are contacting to know if you would be a domestic or foreign player.
3. The third section of your resume in the middle is where you list the prior teams you have played for. This can be other professional soccer teams, college teams, or clubs teams.
As a general rule of thumb, this section of your resume should list the prior teams you played for and in what year you played for them. Underneath the teams listed you can put how many games you played in, games started, goals scored, assists, or any other information you would like to provide about the teams.
4. The fourth section of your resume located below the third section is your achievement and awards section.
This can be both personal and team achievement/ awards that you have had over the years. If your team won promotion or a championship in a given year, this is where you list it. If you also won any man of the match awards or player of the year awards, you would list those here as well.
5. The last and final section of your resume is your references. This is where you list any coaches, players or scouts that teams can contact to ask about you as a player.
————————————————————————————————————Footballers Advice is a resource for soccer (football) players to educate themselves on and off the field of what it takes to become a professional soccer player. Whether you are just learning how to play or looking to play after your college career, Footballers Advice is here to provide the tools players need to reach the next level.
Footballers Advice was created by Michael Galullo, who, after graduating from college had no opportunities to continue his playing career in the United States. Still believing in his dream of becoming a professional soccer player, he went to Europe and knocked on doors to create his own opportunity.
The videos created are from Michael’s experience of playing soccer (football) overseas and the advice he wished he could have received from someone else. The videos in this channel cover a wide range of topics from tutorials on skill moves to travelling advice and interviews from other professional soccer players.
Footballers Advice is a platform for other players who don’t have the resources or connections to break into the professional game. My goal is to give you those resources you need in order to reach your dream.
Thank you and I look forward to starting this journey with you.
