4
GETTING STARTED
  • Prepare before hand.. Think about
  • Why do I want a new job?
  • What do I want from my next job?
  • What do I actually want to do?
  • Understand your financial worth the market
    has changed
  • Practical considerations such as location
  • Not every job is the right job!

5
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A CV?
6
THE PURPOSE OF YOUR CV IS TO SHOWCASE YOUR
EXPERIENCE IN ORDER TO GAIN AN INTERVIEW
  • This is your opportunity to sell yourself and
    make the employer see you as a well qualified,
    professional, concise and thoughtful individual
    who is taking your career seriously.

7
CV WRITING
  • How do you put a CV together?
  • Common Questions We Face
  • What structure / order should my CV be?
  • How long should it be?
  • Where should education be written /
    qualifications?
  • How much detail on experience?
  • Should I put date of birth / marital status /
    dependents?
  • How much focus on my achievements?
  • Should I put a synopsis on my employers?
  • How much detail on reasons for leaving?
  • What is a good personal profile?
  • Should I write hobbies / interests?

8
DOS
  • DO keep personal data short and sweet, and dont
    space it out too much
  • DO include your academic and professional
    qualifications and which stage youre at put if
    you have first time passes, it will help separate
    you from the competition
  • DO put your current role first and bullet point
    your duties and achievements clearly, not lengthy
    paragraphs
  • DO write in the 3rd person no I did or I
    have
  • DO explain any gaps people assume the worst
  • DO send a covering letter and draw attention to
    the reasons you feel you are a strong candidate

9
DONTS
  • DONT mention marital status or dependents,
    people can use it to discriminate
  • DONT write date of birth on the CV
  • DONT list hundreds of duties and
    responsibilities use headings and bullet
    points. Part of assessing a CV is how well you
    are communicating information about yourself,
    getting the message across in a succinct and
    precise manner
  • DONT include a picture
  • DONT write in capitals it makes the reader
    feel like theyre being shouted at!
  • DONT write in a too large or too small font,
    10-12 is perfect

10
CV KILLERS
  • Different fonts, colours and clip art
  • Spellin an grammer mistukes
  • You cant claim attention to detail if there is
    even one mistake on your CV
  • Poor reasons for leaving
  • Gaps on CV employers will consider the worst
    (e.g Jail!!)

11
AND THE BIGGEST CV KILLER OF ALL.
  • PHOTOS.
  • JUST DONT.
  • EVER...

26
Examples Of Negative Interview Feedback
  • He asked if we had a company website
  • The candidate just did not let me speak to ask
    him questions. It was more like a monologue than
    an interview
  • I counted 4 questions he asked me about the role
    which were answered on the spec he had in his
    hand
  • She was nice enough but seemed more interested
    in bad-mouthing her current employers than
    hearing anything about what were like
  • It was all going well until he started demanding
    more than we were paying, before Id even guided
    the conversation towards remuneration
  • He was pleasant enough and the interview went
    OK. However he clearly just wants a job. He did
    little to convince me why this was the job for
    him
  • Well, his phone rang in the interview. He then
    answered it in front of me. Lets just say we
    ended the meeting there
  • I wish hed looked me in the eyes as opposed to
    my chest!

27

INTERIM WORK THE BENEFITS TO YOU

    permanent role
  • Add skills (especially project skills) to your CV
    you may not acquire in a permanent role
  • A way to truly add short term value to a business
  • In current climate it can open doors to a
    permanent role
  • Due to the recession you are no longer seen as
    jumpy if you have taken interim work
