CV Tips

When looking for a new role, your CV forms the first point of the application stage and will be what a potential employer reviews prior to meeting/speaking with you.

  • Clear layout and accuracy are key
  • Key skills, professional / academic achievements should be on show to include grades. These should be toward the beginning of your CV
  • Dates, responsibilities and work related knowledge should be detailed and not abbreviated

We work with you when discussing elements of your CV and can provide guidance to ensure positive impact with any applications all of which is done from the outset.

Pre-Interview Preparation

So you’ve secured an interview, it’s now time to prepare accordingly in order to ensure a successful outcome. Key points for this should include:

  • Relevant research on the organisation, including the location of the interview
  • Ensure you are clear on the position you are applying for, through discussion with your consultant & reading any relevant details i.e. job description
  • Review and analyse your CV as this will be part of the discussion so being clear on your information as this is key
  • Questions should be prepared ensuring they are role/business specific

We take pride in our assistance & the value it offers to registered candidates when applying for roles. Whether you are a seasoned interviewee or looking for your first role, many of those we work with have found our assistance highly beneficial.
