    • How the job boards work

    • How to use LinkedIn (and why it shouldn’t be on your CV)

Updated/Simple CV               Full CV Rewrite

On a basic level a CV is simply a list of where you’ve worked and what you did there. But some CVs get people in front of employers, and some don’t.

There are several reasons for this. It can be the format and type face used, or something more subtle like getting information in the right sequence and a layout that is easy to read. Not just for humans, but also for Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).

Not Hearing Back from Applications?

If you’re applying for jobs but not getting a response there are only 2 reasons this is happening.

  • Your experience is just not right.
  • Your CV is letting you down.

Your experience can’t be changed, but I can change your CV and improve the chances that it will be read by whoever you send it to.

A CV Unique to You

Every CV I write is different. There is a basic structure that I use, but the body of your new CV will be unique.

Wherever possible I use your original words so that it feels like a CV you’ve written and feels familiar, but this isn’t always possible. Some areas will be written from scratch, and we will work together to get them just right so that you are comfortable with the way that you are presented.

Free Review

The process of getting a new CV starts with a review of your current CV against 10 key benchmarks of a model CV. This covers everything from the format and content to the language used.

You’ll get a score to see how your CV compares to those benchmarks and see at a glance how your CV stacks up.

The review will be emailed to you and, if you decide to proceed, you’ll have a new and more effective version of your CV within 3-5 days.
