CV Preparation

Your primary selling tool

Take the worry out of CV Writing

When you send out a CV you hope to persuade someone (usually a stranger) to call you for interview. You need to impress.

  • Is it up to standard?
  • Does it read right, is it too long?
  • What about key words, spelling, layout?

It’s Your Future

For graduates, first time job seekers and those looking for a career change your CV is one of the most important documents you will ever prepare. It is the only area of the interview process that you have control, because you write it. Your CV is a marketing tool designed to get you noticed, short listed and called for interview. The key to creating excellent CVs is to match your document to the job and person description.


Employer Requirements

For employers, a CV is a 20 second read. As they skim your document, employers will look for certain things and would want to find them quickly. They will need to know that they will benefit from hiring you.

  • Will you fit in?
  • How can you contribute to the business?
Your experience, skills, knowledge and personal qualities should be evident as one reads your CV, personal statement and cover letter. If it doesn’t catch their attention in 20 seconds, it is binned.
