CV Advice

Your CV is one of the most important tools required for a job search. In many circumstances, a poorly presented CV can be the difference between success and missing out on your ideal job.

Whether responding to an advert or a direct call, your CV will be competing with many others and thus must stand out and convey the right impression first time. Many people mistake the phrase ‘stand out’ to mean flashy, or colourful or wacky. This is most definitely not the case! A carefully written CV, containing information relevant to the application, that is structured and logical in appearance, is invaluable in your search for a new job.

Profiles

We use profiles with highlighted areas to gain immediate attention from recruiters and companies.The profile should be bedded into the email rather than in attachments.

A lot of head hunters use highly trained researchers and P.A.'s to scan CV's and they miss things over a 2/4 page CV so it is important to highlight your career and achievements in 9/12 lines and maybe even tailor make it towards the job application itself.... please see example CV letter.
