If you have been applying and applying to new jobs but are never getting an interview you have a problem with your CV. It is through your CV that the recruiter will make the all important decision as to who to hire and who to place in the discard pile. If your CV is heading straight for the discard stack you need to get your CV rewritten to make you stand out as the top candidate.
Why is writing a CV a job for a professional?
If your car breaks down do you spend time trying to fix it, maybe you have the skills and might be able to achieve it, but most of us would get a professional mechanic to tackle the job so that we knew that the job would be done to perfection. The same goes for writing a CV, are you a professional writer? Do you know precisely how to format a CV for maximum impact? Do you know which words will have the greatest impact? No? Then you should get your CV written by a professional, you only have maybe 30 seconds to impress with your CV so don’t waste those 30 seconds.
“It’s too expensive” you may be thinking, well consider this; how much will you be earning if you get that new job? The cost of a professionally written CV is miniscule when you compare it to what you will gain financially from your new job, if having a professional CV will secure that job why would you not pay to get it written?
A highly targeted and well written CV that can get the recruiters attention will earn you that interview, so invest in having a professional craft you a winning CV.
How would a professional write your CV
A professional writer would not take a standard format from the internet and drop in your name, address and a few other choice statements; they know that you need a CV that is unique and highly focused. Ideally a CV should be written specifically for each position that you apply for to target it very specifically.
Your professional CV writer would interview you to gain all of your relevant experience and your aspirations for the future, they will use that information to write a CV that would include all of the relevant information that recruiters in your industry would be looking for and leaving out extra information that may have otherwise obscured the necessary data.
They will write your CV using a format that will ensure that those relevant facts are all highlighted and stand out when someone scans through the document as a recruiter certainly will; they will use their copywriting skills to make your CV fit exactly what they will be looking for.
