Tailoring your CV

We were asked today (and it’s a common question) if CVs should be tailored for specific applications – of course they should!!!

Do you have only 1 skill? Of course you don’t. Like most people you will have at least 3 marketable skills that will appeal to a prospective employer and you need to highlight the one they are actually looking for.

It’s a bit like exam instructions : “Read the Questions”, but in this case you should “Read the Advert”. If the advert says they want a Programmer with c++ experience then rewrite your Profile to open with “I am a highly experienced c++ programmer…”

When we rewrite your CV we make sure that you have a Profile that you can easily tailor to a specific role.
