How to Write the Perfect CV

May 24, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

24th May | 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Did you know that the average recruiter spends less than 30 seconds looking at each CV, and statistically, less than 2% of all CVs get shortlisted for roles?

You don’t need to be reminded that competition for all jobs is fierce, and popular roles can receive hundreds of applications – either CVs, application forms or covering letters – or a combination of all three. But how do you ensure that your application is taken seriously, and you don’t end up with just another rejection?

This workshop packs a lot in to 2.5 hours with lots of tips and advice to help you stand out from the crowd.  It will also give revealing insights into the job market and what hiring managers really look for. You’ll also gain insider knowledge as to how to make sure your CV stands out on job sites that hold thousands of CVs so that recruiting managers are able to easily search for you.  Finally, we’ll identify what makes a good cover letter to ensure that you survive the paper sift.

Places are strictly limited so that everybody gets individual attention. If you are starting to think about a new role, why not save yourself months of effort, and book this workshop today.

Book now – places are limited!

Workshop Facilitator: Jack Bateman

Here’s what previous delegates have said:

“Not only was time taken to explain the key elements of a good CV, but to also give advice on each of our individual situations and challenges. I went away with great ideas to improve my CV, and have since been invited to five interviews! I highly recommend it to everybody!” Madeleine

“I found the CV workshop incredibly helpful. The small group set up meant that everyone got tailored advice on their CV and job search, as well as useful information to take away.” Louise

“Despite having worked in recruitment I picked up some valuable tips which I have already been able to pass onto my young clients in the not-for-profit sector. The small group meant that each individual had the opportunity of extremely constructive feed-back. Finally I have been inspired to start updating my cv!” Sharon

“Thanks for an excellent workshop last night. I gained a lot from it and I felt you gave us all a lot of attention. Despite saying you have seen too many CVs I could see that you really enjoy your job and it really came across!” Olu

“Firstly, thank you for an excellent workshop last night. It was really, really useful and provided exactly the advice and support I was hoping for!”  Chris

“I wanted to thank you for yesterday’s workshop. It was very helpful and encouraging – and I left feeling like a different, more confident person!”  Magda

“Massive thanks for yesterday’s workshop. I’ve learned lots of useful tips from you and hope with the new knowledge my job search will be more successful…” Rob
