Prepare Your CV
The aim of your CV is to quickly capture the attention of an employer and to encourage them to call you to interview.
- Keep your document clean and concise (normally 2 to 3 pages.)
- A reverse chronological layout is normally best (your most recent work experience being presented first.)
- Use bullet points to keep the narrative crisp.
- Highlight achievements in each role to give a good flavour as to what value you brought each employer.
In these sessions, we’ll review your current CV; advise on layout and give guidance on areas which should be highlighted. Many people struggle when identifying how they’ve contributed to their last employer. We’ll help you analyse what you’ve done in each role and the positive impact it had.
As each person is unique and has a very different story to tell – we work closely with you to highlight your individuality and present this in a business friendly way.
My only regret is not having gone earlier to Interview Techniques! I had been on the job market for over a year before going to Laura and was not sure where I was going wrong with my interviews.
Laura quickly saw where the problem was and she worked with me to fix it.
I got the first job interview I went to after our session.
