Hi all.
I'm currently working in Spain as a Java web developer. My intention are to one day move to Australia (again) and find a job there.

But, the problem is that i'm not sure how to prepare my CV or Resume, or which i should choose (CV or Resume). Things like the cover letter have me worried.

I know there are web sites out there which make a CV for you, BUT, they are all pay and in UK format (not Australian).

Can someone please help me with this topic?

Warm regards,
Marcelo.

Does anyone have any general advice for this, even if we're talking about a different country?

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of books on this topic. I'd recommend going to your local library or bookstore and finding a book of resumes. Follow those examples. Ask friends to give you feedback on it.

Who says it's different country?

Good advice from Mark: get others to comment on it. Be prepared to take what they say with a grain of salt since it's all subjective, and don't feel hurt by an comments. A view from a fresh face is the closest you'll get to the real thing without sending it in and asking for feedback
