Showcasing your skillset and “value adds” accurately is extremely important when it comes to applying for roles. We know it can be frustrating applying for jobs and not getting interviews, so Four Day Week teamed up with Chris Cutting, a CV coach and recruiter with 30 years’ experience. His history has involved helping companies and job seekers at all levels including post graduates, administration staff and C-Suite Executives from SMEs to FTSE listed businesses.
He has gained extensive insights through working with both applicants and hirers. Involvement in interviewing and helping job applicants write CVs; as well as helping hiring managers critically appraise CVs, shortlist and interview; has enabled him to analyse and develop a clear rationale behind what makes an effective CV. How hiring managers scrutinise a CV and interview is not only revealing but very instructive when it comes to helping jobseekers. Regardless of professional discipline and level of seniority, the principles of writing effective CVs remain the same, despite differing styles and presentations.
CV Adviser offers 1-2-1 online interviewing and coaching in how to construct an effective Curriculum Vitae that generates interviews and lifts interview performance. Chris is able to get clients to reveal achievements/ value adds they perhaps don’t realise they have or indeed take for granted. He is also able to get applicants to quantify their achievements and to express these effectively. This is what makes a CV stand out from the crowd.
