A CV that sells you is essential if you want to secure a job on-line. With an estimated 7.5 million on-line UK job hunters, your CV needs to be the one which stands out for all the right reasons.
Career Consultants On-Line is the UK’s number one CV consultancy. We offer you the complete job hunting solution.
CVs can create a positive response in around 20 seconds. The prospective employer is either in awe of you or isn’t. “That is the value of a positive CV,”says Sarah Berry. “When I first began writing professional CVs over 10 years ago people often asked me what is so special about your CV? In order to demonstrate the value of a professionally-written CV, I developed the CV assessment product to show the difference between a CV with impact and an ordinary CV. The CV assessment evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of every part of the current CV and covering letter.
Candidates receive a commentary of over 500 words in length, a detailed assessment covering 40 important aspects that need to be included in a CV if it is to score a maximum 100 out of 100. Sections of the CV are cut and pasted into the on-line assessment page and held within your own secure area. The consultant adds his/her words of advice on how to improve the CV to give it maximum impact. The assessment provides the candidate with all the necessary feedback on his/her CV and allows him/her to decide what positive action needs to be taken.”
Take one more look at your CV. How good is it? Will your CV beat the competition or let the competition through?
