CV and resume Introduction

Testimonials

An extremely valuable experience.  I now have a CV and cover letters which I am confident will make an impact.  However, over and above that the process has enabled me to identify the valuable 'transferable skills' that I have picked up along the way which could make me attractive to a wider range of employers than I would previously have considered." Paul Durral, Kent, UK.

So easy, once you showed me how!  John Burchel, Cambs, UK

Thank you so much.  After a complete lack of interest I had an interview within a week of receiving the new CV - & now have a new job & career path.  Thanks again.  Stephen Meltip, Glos, UK>

I was just a little cynical about all this, but it worked!  I had sent numerous CVs with no response at all, now I have had several telephone calls in just a couple of days.  Terrance Stevens, Manchester, UK

So much for the “professional” advice I paid for before – that did not work but this did!  Thanks again. Vanessa Downs, Canterbury, UK.

Thanks for the super service; I am already getting ‘phone calls. Thomas Etherngton, Penn. USA.

Wow!  Even I would give myself a job!  I did not realise how good I was!  John Beale, NY, USA

What a difference, thank you so much.  Malcolm Royce, Belfast, Ir.

Thanks again, it really did make a difference.  I have already received a couple of phone calls and feel much more confident about the future.  Marsha Hartington, Newcastle, UK.

Further to our telephone conversation I really must write and thank you for all your help.  I was becoming more than a little discouraged at the total lack of response or interest – now the ‘phone has started to ring again.  Thanks, once more.  Anthony Wilde, Watford, UK.

CV and resume Introduction

Your CV (curriculum vitae) or Resume has just one purpose – to get you the interview!

cv resume introductionThe ideal CV is a written communication that clearly demonstrates your ability and experience in a specific field in such a way that the reader wants to meet you.  Your CV is a marketing tool, usually two pages long, designed to make a prospective employer want to meet you.  Your CV needs to highlight your strengths and accomplishments, matching your experience and abilities to the job requirements in a manner that sets you above other candidates.

The creation of a CV requires you to spend a sensible amount of time and effort in the collation of information, preparation, layout, proof-reading and analysis.  Generally, your CV has just 30 seconds (or less) to impress the professional recruiter before being discarded in the round filing cabinet on the floor!

Accept that your first effort will, almost certainly, require tuning, editing, modification, perhaps re-writing.  Prepare, print-off, examine, re-examine after a couple of days, have your friends and family examine.

Your CV performs two functions in your job search.  Firstly, it acts as a sales tool, illustrating why you should be considered for a position, in something less than thirty seconds!  Secondly, your CV will form the framework for any subsequent interview; employers often use your CV as a basis for their questions regarding your skill, experience and suitability for the position in question.  Put the most attractive, and relevant, information at the top of your CV
