Writing an interview-winning CV or resume is at the heart of any successful job-hunting campaign. Its job is to convince the reader (ie: the recruiter) that you can do the job.
Your CV is your career marketing and communications tool, and its aim is to grab the attention of a prospective employer so that you get invited to interview for the position.
Before you start your search for the perfect job, it is absolutely critical that you get the presentation of your credentials in its best possible format.
Recruiters now receive literally hundreds of CV’s for every job they post.
If you want to increase your chances of having your resume noticed in a very crowded and highly competitive market, you need a resume that will rise above the rest.
Resumes today are not just a dry, chronological history of your employment to date, or a laundry list of what you do in your day-to-day job – they are career marketing documents that should position you as the perfect candidate for the roles you apply for. Through our questioning, we aim to get to the essence of what you have that sets you apart from other candidates and what your personal brand is.
In order to do this, we need to delve into what value YOU bring to a potential employer that other candidates won’t. We do this by presenting proof of your achievements. Your CV needs to make it through the candidate management software and applicant tracking systems so that it doesn’t get discarded in the screening process by a computer, before it’s even read by a real person.
