Essential (and free) CV help during an economic downturn
Recession-beating CV advice, without spending a penny!
Struggling to create a ‘winning’ CV? Haven’t needed a CV for years and don’t know where to start? Not sure how to tailor your CV towards a specific job? Don’t panic! Use free online resources to help give your career the kick start it needs!
In today’s economy, people are more reluctant than ever to part with their money, and, after suffering a redundancy, experiencing a prolonged period out of employment or having recently graduated, the last thing you want to do is spend cash on careers advice.
More often than not, out of 100s applicants for 1 position, less than 2% of CVs reach the interview pile. A key aspect of writing a CV is down to how well you have highlighted what you do / have done, and achieved to a specific profile a recruiter is searching for.
A free CV review provides a detailed analysis of your CV, looking for appropriate content and style, details of any spelling errors / grammatical inconsistencies and information relating to structural problems, content positioning and terminology.
Rather than spend money on improving your CV, why not contact a company, such as The CV Store (www.thecvstore.net/) who offer free CV critiques and can advise on how to handle ‘red flags’, such as gaps in employment.
