CV Preparation, Job Search & Interview Techniques Programme
Your CV is your introduction to prospective employers. This is a sales tool for you and your only chance to make a good first impression. This is the document that gets you in front of the prospective employer. At least it’s supposed to.
So the question is, does your CV do this for you? Does it help you stand out from the rest of the field? Is it going to get you in the door? Does it compel prospective employers to schedule an interview for you?
If your answer is yes then great, you’re sorted, send us that CV straightaway. If not please keep reading.
CV: Preparation and Optimisation
It may have been many years since you had to produce or update such a document. It may be that this is the first time you’ve felt a need for a CV. Or it could be you’re finding that your CV is just not converting into interviews. We’re here to help you fix that.
I make a point of stressing to candidates that every minute of attention they devote to optimising their curriculum vitae saves them hours later on analysing the reasons for their latest rejection. Success preparation beats rejection explanation every time.Catherine Murtagh
Working together we will review your CV and suggest ways in which it can be optimised. We’ll recommend the relevant changes to make. Whether those are changes to format, layout, size, shape, sequencing or content, we’ll leave nothing to chance.
We will work with you to produce a new and updated curriculum vitae. You will learn what employers are looking for in a CV. You’ll discover what you need to leave out too.
In the end you’ll have a CV designed to attract the right type of attention; a CV designed for compatiblity with modern human resource and job board technologies. This last point is more important than you might think. In any event by the time we’re done you’ll have a CV you can put to work on your behalf.
Online Professional Profile: Preparation and Optimisation
Our career transition services package doesn’t overlook your virtual self either. If you have a professional online presence how much is it helping you? Does it tell the same story as your curriculum vitae? How well does it tell that story? Whether you’re on LinkedIn or XING if you haven’t optimised your profile for discoverability, and designed it to enchant, then you’re missing a vital tactic. We’ll help you put that right.
What approach are you taking to finding your next job? Have you put your faith entirely in recruitment agencies? Or do you favour direct applications? A surprising number of people believe that the more CVs they send out the greater their chances of finding a job? Do you know why this might prove counterproductive? Do you follow up on the applications you’ve made?
We will work with you to illustrate how best to balance your approach and where to direct your efforts for best results. Learn the best tactics and job search tactics, tips and strategies from our career professionals.
Do you remember the time when an interview was a chat about you and your education and aspirations? Perhaps there were even a few questions about your previous experience? That type of interview belongs to the dim and distant past.
These day more focus is placed on your experience, but with particular emphasis on your achievements and your outcomes. As a rule the questions asked are scored and matrixes kept so all candidates are equally evaluated.
Would you know how to deal with these types of competency based questions? Well we can help you with this too. Contact us now to take the first step.
