A key element in any successful job hunt is having a well-crafted, professional looking CV. Your CV is usually your first introduction to a potential employer so it is important that you make a great first impression. Research shows that the average recruiter will spend no more than 6 seconds reviewing each CV they receive before making a decision, so it is important to stand out.
The problem for many people is that while there is plenty of information available about how to put together a CV, including examples and templates, it is not much use if you are not sure of what information is important to put in your CV or how to present yourself in the most effective way. Templates are useful, but they don’t explain exactly what you should be including in your CV.
Most people are capable of writing a CV, all it takes is time, creativity, logical thinking and the experience to know what is important to a potential employer. However, most people just don’t have the time or the experience to put together an effective CV. You rely on experienced professionals to service your car, do your plumbing or electrical work, so why not use a professional to write your CV?
Send your existing CV to me and I will review it and tell you how much it will cost to rewrite (and if it is perfect as it is, I will tell you). We will have a discussion about your experience and your career plans and then I will go and put together your CV that is unique to you.
I will also review your LinkedIn profile and update that if necessary. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, I will set one up for you. I will also look at any other online profiles you have to ensure that you are making the best impression possible and so maximising your chances of finding your ideal job.
If your current CV doesn’t meet the 6 second test, then why not invest in your future and use someone who has written hundreds of CVs? Take advantage of my 25 years of experience in the recruitment industry and have your CV reviewed today.
