3 top tips for creating your CV
So to really understand what it's like to put a CV together, this weekend I created mine and it wasn't easy! Looking inwards at yourself is tough isn't it? So, having felt the pain of creating a CV myself, I made this video with my top 3 tips to help get you started. 1. Clarify what's important to you. Get to know what makes you tick, your values and your motivators. I used a mindtools exercise to help me. Here it is - https://lnkd.in/e5JbZ5X 2. Decide what you want to be known for. Employers will not be excited to talk to someone who knows how to do everything, they want someone to fix their specific problem or pain. 3. Consider the layout of your CV and remember to incorporate space. Your aim is to whet the appetite of a prospective employer enough to want to see you. You don't need to include every minute detail of your career. Last tip.... don't wait to be a job seeker to create your CV. It's much easier to compile a CV when in a positive mind-set as opposed to being a job seeker, when you may be anxious and not be sure what's around the corner. #jobsearch #CV #jobseeking #jobseeker #createyourCV
