We were delighted to introduce Michelle Hiseman, a professional CV Writer and Career Counsellor to some of our members last night at our CV and Interview Workshop.

In just 90 minutes Michelle walked us through the basics of creating a killer CV – a must for anyone serious about nailing that gold-dust role – as well as how to deal with a career break, how to turn negatives to positives, as well as interview types and techniques.

There were far too many hints and tips for us to list them all, so here are our favorites….

Our Top 3 CV Writing Tips:

  1. NEVER leave a gap – a career break is a career break, no matter what you have been up to.  A gap raises suspicion – listing a ‘career break’ raises potential interview questions…
  2. Tweak your CV for every role you go for. You have just 10 seconds – 15 maximum – to get yourself onto that YES pile.  Make every single one of them count.  If you don’t, someone else will…..
  3. The only thing you should be thinking as you write your CV is ‘what are they looking for – what skills do they need – how can I show them that I can help them achieve their goals’.
