Are you looking for a new role, but not sure your current Curriculum Vitae (or CV for short) is up to the job? If you’re starting from scratch, it is often a daunting thought to sit down to write a winning CV. It is often a job which we put off and in cases, sometimes until it’s too late.
Did you know that your potential employer will only spend between 20-30 seconds on your CV? and on average 100-159 people apply for every advertised vacancy in the UK.
Based on this it is probably wise to avoid comments and statements such as these:
“You will want me to be Head Honcho in no time.”
“Marital status: single. Unmarried. Unengaged. Uninvolved. No commitments.”
“I have an excellent track record, although I am not a horse.”
Your CV and covering letter is your chance to show an employer the best of what you’ve got. It’s about selling your skills and experience, and showing them you’re the right person for the job. It is really important to have a good quality and polished CV and Covering Letter. To help you maximise your chances of success we are offering you this short course. It offers examples and helpful tips to make your CV stand out from the crowd!
This course is currently available free of charge. Use voucher code: FREESHORT when you enrol.
