Improve Your CV in 10 Simple Steps For The Cost of a Cappuccino!
Easy CV WRITING IN 10 SIMPLE STEPS
Let our vast experience of working in Retail, Small Businesses, Corporate Firms and Investment Banking help you by improving your success in gaining a new role. Unlike 99% of firms that offer services to improve your CV to land a new job we have actually lived the role, and for a considerable time, so we have earned real life experience at the coal face and learned our craft the hard way.
* INDUSTRY UPDATE *
Unfortunately, more and more people will be losing their jobs and contracts due to the pandemic and will need to change industry in order to secure paid employment. This is a very daunting and frustrating experience as you will be feeling upset about losing your income plus your CV will be specific to your current industry experience.
The good news is that lots of skills are transferable between industries and you need to ensure this is very obvious on your CV, as it is best practice to change your CV to fit each role for which you apply, even within the same industry. In the case of changing industries, you need to extract from your current CV your current industry experience and what is still relevant for the advertised job in the new industry.
We are not recruitment consultants or someone only with HR experience offering general advice with not actual industry experience. We know what actually works for getting jobs having used our knowledge to land roles and get hired by some of the best firms in the world for both Contract and Permanent roles. We have also started several successful companies and worked with a substantial number of Off-Shore professionals and understand their unique challenges with the English language in a business context.
In our professional opinion you cannot be an expert in everything, so you need to specialise and this is particularly true when providing tailor made services for landing a job. For example, some technical jobs such as IT are saturated with acronyms and specialised terminology which non-IT literate CV writers would struggle to understand when reviewing a CV, in order to ensure highly relevant and in demand skills and experience are prominently displayed.
Investing a small amount of your time to use an Easy CV Guide including Template written by industry experts, who can also review and improve your CV, is critical to getting your skills and experience noticed by employers and employment agencies - to avoid being eliminated at the very first stage.
On this site you will find the tools you need to build your confidence and dazzle potential employers.
Help with grammar for non-native English language clients as this really makes or breaks a job application.
Help you deliver Easy Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations with presentation tips, content, formatting and grammar which impresses your audience and makes you shine.
We have the know-how to help you achieve your career goals and get paid your real worth.
IT'S Easy WHEN YOU KNOW HOW
Have you ever wondered how you could be earning more money out of your skills? Have you ever asked yourself why that other person you know, who is in the same industry, is doing so much better than you?
Let's be honest, they're probably not any better than you at doing the job but what they are better at doing is getting paid more than you. They may even be in the same role i.e. Sales, Retail Assistant, Surveyor, Call Centre Operator, Developer, Office Administration, Project Manager etc. but where they differ is in where they are working.
So, do these higher earners have magical powers, or do they have an Einstein level of intellect? Of course not, all they realised (like we did) was that it was not what you knew but who paid you for it. What you will need to change is your approach and mind-set because as you know repeating the same method over and over to get a new job will not change the outcome.
It's easy to put things off and justify to yourself as to why you should not be capable of finding a new role, but every day you delay making any progress is losing you money and you will still be thinking about it and regretting your indecisiveness and lack of motivation.
