I have a question and I hope someone can give me some advice! I have an interview over the next few weeks for a job - working for an agency who recruit for international health programmes in developing countries. The main focus of the job is Latin America, and I would be working as a recruitment consultant, sourcing mainly British medical specialists to work on these programmes abroad.

My interview is an hour long, half of it in English and the rest in Spanish. OK - following me so far? After the interview, I have a translation test which will consist of the translation of a CV from English to Spanish (ie out of my mother tongue). I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how to prepare for this - I don't translate professionally into Spanish and, as I have no idea as to what the content of the CV will be, I am going into the test practically blind (we are not allowed dictionaries).

So - basically - does anyone know of any websites where I can find examples of Spanish CVs, (particularly from the medical field, but general CVs would also be good) and, further to this, does anyone have any tips as to how to prepare for the test?

Thanks a million to anyone who answers, and have a great week everyone!
