Resumé in Portuguese

Hi everyone! In our Dica today, we will learn how to write a Resumé in Portuguese. Let’s see examples of Resumes in Portuguese and learn how to do a good one.

How to set up a Resumé in Portuguese

Personal information

Firstly, this section is where you introduce yourself, providing your personal information to your possible employer. Notice that, in Brazil, we are not used to putting photos in our Resumé in Portuguese.

Academic education

This is the part where you describe your education and academic background on your Resumé in Portuguese. Therefore, what and where you studied and for how long, mention the subject you studied and the qualification gained.

Professional experience

Now you can describe all about your professional experience. So talk about the companies you have worked in and how long you stayed there. Don’t forget to include your job titles and explain your responsibilities.


As a matter of fact, your goal is to have Fluent Portuguese listed here, right? Now is the moment to put the name of the school that helped you learn Portuguese in 30 days. Jokes aside… this is the part where you tell them all the languages that you speak and your level in each of them.

Other information

Finally, it is in this part you can put additional information about your professional and academic life. You could include here your experience abroad, if you have some, talking about the courses or jobs that you have had all over the world.


Did you know that to work in Brazil, it is not necessary to have CELPE-Bras certification in your Resumé in Portuguese? You only need to speak Portuguese. But of course you will need to show your Portuguese during your interview. For this reason, make sure you get plenty of practice!
