CV Troubleshoot

Despite having a current CV that I was reasonably happy with I thought that I would engage some specialist support to provide an independent view and maybe consider a fresh approach.  Rather than simply refresh my CV with the latest buzz words and fancy phrases, the experience has prompted me to do some soul searching and identify some more personal attributes for consideration.  The process has resulted in a new CV that maintains a professional approach yet with a more personal feel that I hope will set me apart from the crowd.

My CV has a more personal feel

FAQs

What does ‘CV’ even mean?

Curriculum Vitae (CV) is a Latin expression and can be loosely translated as “course of life”. More commonly outside of the UK, CVs are referred to as résumés, French for “summary”.

What does a CV need to include?

Your CV is the story of your life/career and it is your marketing tool, selling yourself to potential employers. It’s a snapshot of who you are, clearly outlining your career.

How long should my CV be?

Ideally it will be 1-2 A4 pages and should include your career history/work experience, education/training/qualifications and contact details.

Why do I need a CV writer?

It can be hard to be objective when writing about yourself. It’s also time consuming. That is where the role of a CV writer comes in. A good CV will open doors for you and help you find the job that you really want.

What happens when I work with you?

After you book and pay for your package, I’ll get in touch to arrange a consultation and discuss the next steps.

My first job will be to find out about you, your past and where you want to go. I do this via a detailed form which, combined with meeting you, enables me to gather all the information I need.

I’ll then write your CV, presenting your relevant skills and qualities clearly, highlighting how they are key to the jobs you are targeting.

What will my CV look like?

At the top of your CV will be a professional, engaging profile that tells the employer that you are the one for the job.

I’ll use key words that match your ideal job profile, ensuring your CV is picked up in the recruitment process, either by the human eye or by Applicant Tracking Software.

I’ll make sure your CV creates a great first impression of you, paying meticulous attention to grammar, spelling and presentation, ensuring your CV is set out in a logical manner and easy to read.
